New Market Research Report: Argentina Information Technology Report Q4 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Sep 02 2015

The forecast for the Argentine IT market in 2015 has been raised slightly as a result of our Country Risk team's view for a less hostile economic environment, including slower peso dep reciation against the US dollar, which will mean less pressure on PC sales than under our previous forecast. We still expect a marked improvement from 2014 when t he e conomic crisis had a major disruptive impact on the Argentine IT market , with the devaluation of the peso, import restrictions, high inflation, capital controls, shortage of credit and government debt default all contributing to a recession and sharp contraction of the IT market in US dollar terms . Over the medium term , w e expect the market to move to a higher growth trajectory from 2016/2017 as confidence returns and deferred purchases from 2014-2015 are unlocked . Meanwhile, the impact of economic crisis was not wholly negative, with devaluation help ing to make IT exports abroad more competitive and boosting industry development . There are also positive fu ndamentals for medium- term growth including increases in PC penetration, second device ownership, enterprise software penetration and cloud computing are examples of sectors that have growth opportunities.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: ARS18.2bn in 2014 to ARS20.0bn in 2015, +9.9% in local currency. Peso depreciation a drag on market growth, but under our revised forecast we now expect a contraction of just 1.4% in US dollar terms and growth in overall PC volumes in 2015.

Software Sales: ARS13.7bn in 2014 to ARS15.5bn in 2015, up 12.7% in local currency terms. Small- and medium-sized enterprise demand for software and strong potential in enterprise resource planning applications should maintain growth despite macroeconomic challenges.
