U.S. Enterprise IT Spending to Grow by 6% in 2013
According to the new International Data Corporation (IDC) United States Black Book 4Q12, total IT spending on hardware, software, and IT services across all 15 enterprise industries is forecasted to grow by 6% in 2013, to approximately $474 Billion. Over the last quarter, the U.S economic outlook has been clouded with uncertainties surrounding the fiscal cliff, contracting G.D.P growth, and declining international trade owing to reduced economic activity in the Euro zone. IDC expects the U.S. economy to stabilize in the second half of 2013, leading to moderately strong IT spending growth. Specific industries expected to grow at above-average rates for the coming year include healthcare, which is forecast to grow by more than 8% in 2013, due in part to the need to process and analyze increasing volumes of data from new clinical systems such as EHR. The professional services industry is also expected to grow more than 8%; a high correlation between overall corporate profitability and IT spending by professional services firms suggests robust spending within this industry as corporate profits are forecasted to improve.
