Major Computing & Electronics Manufacturing and Producing Nations

As the electronic manufacturing industry is increasingly globalized, with US companies outsourcing factory activities abroad, it is difficult to delineate company boundaries; design, manufacture and assembly of products can span three different countries. The industry is driven by technological innovation, with cost competitiveness proving to be a key factor. According to private research firm Business Insights, South Korean companies LG and Samsung are fueling commoditization of the industry, with other companies striving to hold their own in the face of these emerging corporate powers. Japanese competitors are looking to diversification into fields such as environment and energy to stimulate growth. Apple, on the other hand, is managing to keep its profits high through the tactic of disruptive innovations. The European electronic manufacturing services industry grew by almost 6.5% in 2011, with a lower rate inferior to 3% in Western Europe, and a higher rate of over 9% in Central & Eastern Europe, according to Reed Electronics Research. The global electronic manufacturing services industry is expected to grow by almost 9% each year throughout the five-year period by the end of 2015, according to MarketLine, at which point the market would be worth almost $300 billion. Most electronic equipment manufacturers are at the service of original equipment manufacturers. The region comprised of Central and Eastern Europe and other is expected to represent 60% of overall EU electronic production by 2015, a 3% increase compared with 2010. Electronics products are becoming cheaper and being produced faster thanks to the industry’s supply chain, which is becoming more and more globalized. Much of the electronic goods manufactured by the industry come from Asia, with China the number one country in terms of production. Outsourcing is common amongst US electronics manufacturers, allowing them to capitalize on profits by cutting production costs. The industry relies on technological innovation, with heavy investment in research and development projects involving highly qualified engineers and technical experts. An increasing degree of automation is making the production of electronics equipment faster and helping to keep the pace of production up with that of constantly evolving designs.

Ghana, Kenya & Nigeria Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Ghana, Kenya & Nigeria Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: The oil-producing African nations draw a large portion of government revenues from petroleum
exports, exposing them to the sharp decline in crude oil price in late 2014 and early 2015. This will weigh
on public spending and private investment in the short-term, including investments in new IT products and
solutions.

Russia Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: Our outlook for Russian IT market spending growth turned bearish in response to the
imposition of sanctions in 2014, which resulted in rouble depreciation and undermined domestic confidence
levels. We expect growth to be maintained in local currency terms over the medium term, but the US dollar
growth outlook is much weaker. Meanwhile, another area where political factors are contributing to
uncertainty is regulation of the internet, which could also result in the industry losing its lustre. Our shortterm

South Africa Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: We revised down our forecasts for IT spending in South Africa owing to a weaker economic
outlook from our Country Risk team since our previous update. However, it will remain one of the faster
growing emerging markets in the IT sphere. We note the IT market is mainly driven by government
spending as well as large enterprises, both of which are expected to slow their spending in the light of a
slower economy. However, there is growing interest in IT solutions among small- and medium-sized

United States Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: The outlook for US IT spending remains strong when compared to the majority of developed
markets over the medium term, as a result of stronger economic performance and a greater interest from
enterprises in the latest products and solutions. Cloud computing, real-time enterprise software, security
and big data are all areas of spending in which we expect to see strong growth, particularly in the latter
years of our forecast. The retail hardware outlook is more mixed, as we expect continued demand growth

BMI View: Etisalat's adoption of Microsoft Lync, which can connect people across Windows and other
operating systems, including mobile devices, supports BMI's view that heavy investments in next generation
mobile broadband networks and the proliferation of smartphones has laid the foundations for growth in the
region's enterprise mobility solutions market. We expect Microsoft's cloud-based mobility solutions to
continue to be a key selling point for its software in the UAE and across the Middle East.

Vietnam Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 21 2015

BMI View: We maintain a positive outlook for the Vietnamese IT market in the latest update, but we
highlight increased downside risk from a tightening of domestic credit conditions into 2015 as a result of a
build up of bad debt. Credit markets could cause short-term disruption but our forecast for robust mediumterm
growth in Vietnamese IT spending remains in place, with a forecast for a compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) of 12.6% between 2014 and 2018. We expect growth will be driven by rising incomes,

BMI View: We downgraded our outlook for IT spending growth in South Korea in the Q1 2015 update to
reflect a weakening of the economic outlook, but we still expect it to outperform the majority of developed
markets 2015-2018with robust growth rates, particularly in comparison to EU markets. The South Korean
IT market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% 2015-2018 to reach a value of KRW34trn in 2018. One
reason for a relatively bullish outlook is the relatively underdeveloped software and services segment in

Canada Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 14 2015

BMI View: As a mature market Canadian IT sector growth rates will significantly underperform emerging
markets. Despite the fact that PC hardware prices have declined, Canada will continue to be one of the
most lucrative markets globally in terms of spending per capita. We expect Canada's IT market to record
growth of 4.2% in 2015, and forecast a CAGR of 4.1% 2014-2018. Premium consumer hardware will
remain a growth area, but over the medium term the areas we identify for outperformance include

Date Published: Jan 14 2015

BMI View: Saudi Arabia offers compelling growth opportunities for IT solution providers across multiple
industry verticals owing to the kingdom's strong macro fundamentals and the government's economic
diversification plan, which is driving growth and investment in the private sector. We believe that global IT
firms with considerable local presence will benefit the most from this opportunity. A number of major IT
firms have already taken steps in recent years to ramp up their operations in the country, usually through

Singapore Information Technology Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 14 2015

BMI View: Despite a downgrade to the growth outlook for Singapore's IT market in the Q115 update to
reflect diminished opportunities in the hardware segment, we still expect growth in Singapore will
outperform the majority of developed markets. Growth from the sales of PC and devices will be sluggish as
high device penetration in the city state means little prospect for first time sales, but strong demand for
premium devices will ensure it remains a lucrative market for vendors. Meanwhile, high incomes, exposure

Date Published: Jan 14 2015

BMI View: UK information technology sector growth will be driven by areas such as the app economy and
cloud computing and there are promising signs for growth of emerging technologies such as data centres
and Big Data that are subject to government support. However, we continue to point to significant
downside as the elections in 2015 could impact public spending. Spending is already squeezed by fiscal
austerity measures, fragile business and consumer confidence and a decline in desktop and notebook

We expect the growth rate for IT spending in Brazil to remain stable at 8.2% in local currency terms in 2015. Although the economy is forecast to strengthen, we continue to highlight downside risk that will act as a drag on growth, including currency depreciation and fragile consumer and enterprise confidence. However, over the medium term, the growth outlook is positive - the Brazilian IT market is the largest in Latin America and will continue to be driven by a growing middle-class population and enterprise modernisation.

Croatia's entrance into the EU was completed in July 2013, and this should be a key driver of ICT growth, facilitating increased trade between European markets. Over the next five years, the process of EU convergence, which still has far to go, will drive spending on IT projects. Funds such as the EU Cohesion fund are already providing funding for IT projects related to modernisation initiatives in both public and business segments.

The weakness of the domestic economic environment combined with political uncertainty will act as a drag on the development of the French IT market 2015-2018, and we expect France will be a regional underperformer. Of specific concern is the weak growth forecast for the majority of French citizens in terms of incomes, and the cuts announced to public sector IT spending.
