This IDC study provides a detailed overview of IT spending trends and forecasts for 17 vertical markets (or sectors) and nine product and service categories in South Africa. The study features overviews of key industry developments, industry challenges, and vertical-specific IT drivers and trends and includes tables detailing IT spending by vertical market for each product and service type for the 2011–2016 period. Analysis is based on continuous research, the monitoring of users' IT spending and emerging purchasing patterns, and supply- and demand-side research.
"The South African IT market is the biggest in Africa and will remain so throughout the 2012–2016 forecast period. As investments in public-sector infrastructure ramp up, IT vendors will find many opportunities within the finance, government, communications, and manufacturing verticals." -– Senior Research Analyst Jebin George, IDC Middle East, Africa, and Turkey
