New Computer Technology market report from Business Monitor International: "Sri Lanka Information Technology Report Q1 2015"

[USPRwire, Tue Nov 25 2014] Strong economic growth and a government that is supportive of digitalisation underpin our IT growth forecast as this is also likely to filter through in a shape of increased government spending. We estimate a CAGR of 15.5% for IT market spending 2014-2018, with the market expected to increase to a value of LRK163.8bn in 2018.

The local IT industry is also developing, with a vibrant local software and BPO industry and the development of local facilities for PC manufacture and assembly to service the local market and wider region.
