Primary author headshot


This webinar presents Forrester's updates to our forecast for business and government purchases of information and communications technologies (ICT) globally, in the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia Pacific for 2013 and 2014.


  • Improving economies in the US and China offset weakness in Europe and Japan to raise the 2013 growth rate to 5.4% in local currencies, though a strong dollar will keep dollar growth rate low at 3.3%.
  • Software and IT outsourcing will lead the tech market in 2013, but with software on an upward growth path while IT outsourcing is heading for slower growth in 2014. Computer and communications equipment will lag.
  • As economies improve, underlying demand for new technologies of mobility, smart computing and analytics, and cloud computing will drive growth in 2013 and especially in 2014.
