The Romania IT market is forecast to expand over the medium term, and outperfrom many markets in the region. We forecast total IT market spending will increase to RON5.17bn in 2014, growth of 9.1% in local currency terms from 2013. Spending growth is forecast to gain momentum from 2014 as the economy recovers and consumer and enterprise confidence strengthens. Income growth will support retail hardware spending growth, while improvements to telecommunications infrastructure is forecast to accelerate the development of Romania as an outsourcing and cloud computing market. The ongoing transformation of political and economic structures, driven domestically and by EU accession, will also provide opportunities. Regional economic instability could derail this bullish outlook, but the wider region could also drive the market to a higher growth trajectory.
