BMI View: We expect relatively strong growth in Czech IT spending over the medium term , with a CAGR of 5.6% forecast for 2016-2020 to CZK99.6bn . The market will be even more lucrative in US dollar terms due to koruna appreciation , though this could be a squeeze on the large electronics export industry and the growth of the software development industry . Meanwhile, for domestic spending, a strengthening currency is positive for economic confidence and household purchasing power that will support retail PC volume growth, as well as upside for increasing PC average selling prices as the middle class becomes more affluent.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

  • Computer Hardware Sales: CZK30.2bn in 2016 to CZK33.6bn in 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.7% in local currency terms. Desktop market will underperform, but strong retail sales of notebooks and tablets expected as household incomes register significant increases.

  • Software Sales: CZK18.9bn in 2016 to CZK24.7bn in 2020, a CAGR of 7.0%. Cloud delivery models will result in some price erosion, but this drag will be offset by a deepening of the enterprise applications market to more small- and medium-sized enterprises.

  • IT Services Sales: CZK31.1bn in 2016 to CZK41.4bn in 2020, a CAGR of 7.4%. Growing demand from enterprises and the public sector for outsourcing and cloud service will underpin IT services spending growth outperformance over the medium term.
