Fast Market Research recommends "Hong Kong Information Technology Report Q4 2015" from Business Monitor International, now available

[USPRwire, Sun Oct 18 2015] Hong Kong's position as a regional data centre and cloud services hub will sustain growth rates above those observed in the majority of developed markets globally 2015- 2019. D river s of cloud investment will be demand from Hong Kong's large financial services industry, as well as opportunities for regional expansion. The cloud opportunity offsets some of the limitations of the retail market where high penetration rates will mean relatively slower growth in spending compared to emerging markets in APAC. We forecast IT spending in Hong Kong will reach almost HKD 44.1 bn in 2015, with growth of 6. 6 % forecast in local currency terms. There is, however, some downside, primarily from the economic and political ties with China, which introduce some uncertainty.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: HKD13.7bn in 2014 to HKD13.9bn in 2015, +2.7% in local currency terms. Growth will be more subdued than during the tablet boom years 2011-2013 as the market stabilises after rapid diffusion of ownership among the core user group.
Software Sales: HKD12.2bn in 2014 to HKD13.0bn in 2015, +6.0% in local currency terms. Demand growth forecast to slow relative to 2014 after OS upgrade demand was brought forward by Microsoft support withdrawal for XP in April 2014, but the enterprise software market offers continued opportunity, particularly for SaaS and cyber-security vendors.
IT Services Sales: HKD14.7bn in 2014 to HKD16.4bn in 2015, +11.2% in local currency terms. Increased adoption of infrastructure and platform cloud computing services will make IT services the outperforming segment of the IT market in 2015 and over the medium term to 2019.
