Chile Information Technology Report Q1 2016 - New Market Report

Although peso depreciation against the US dollar continues to weigh on the growth outlook for Chile's IT market in 2015, particularly in the hardware market, we expect overall demand growth will accelerate from 2014. Our strong outlook for the Chilean IT market is backed up by acceleration in real GDP growth compared to 2014 , while t he government's fiscal stimulus should also have positive spill - over effects for the IT industry, which draws a large percentage of revenue from the public sector. Meanwhile, l ower oil prices should support stronger economic activity among consumers, with potential for greater spending on IT hardwa re such as tablets and laptops. In terms of IT market segments, IT services are expected to grow the most in Chile throughout our forecast period as businesses increasingly opt for cloud computing solutions to cut costs.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: We expect sales to rise from CLP805.1bn in 2014 to CLP844.5bn in 2015, an increase of 4.9%. Demand growth in the hardware market will be subdued by peso depreciation, squeezing household purchasing power in global markets and thereby reducing demand for non-essential imported hardware.
Software Sales: CLP360.2bn in 2014 to CLP393.7bn in 2015, an increase of 9.3% in local currency terms. Growth will decelerate from 2014 when demand was boosted by operating system upgrades as Microsoft withdrew support for XP. The fastest growth in 2015 is expected to be in more complex enterprise software such as customer relationship management and business intelligence as demand moves beyond basic enterprise resource planning solutions.
