On-line Presentation


This IDC Presentation provides a detailed analysis of the market and competitive landscape in IT services in China during July–December 2015 (2H15). It covers the market size movements and growth trends in each of the macromarkets (project-oriented, outsourcing, and deploy and support services) as well as the key industries such as finance, manufacturing, public sector, retail, communications, and retail/wholesale. The report also provides a market and vendor analysis of the 3rd Platform technologies as the key market drivers. The competitive analysis section includes key strategies and activities of large global and local IT services providers in the market.

The data and insights within this presentation are a part of the "Asia/Pacific Semiannual Services Tracker" research, which covers 14 foundation markets across 14 Asia/Pacific countries.

Despite a bleak economic outlook in China, IT services market growth remained stable during 2H15. Digital transformation initiatives remained at the forefront, driven by investments in cloud, mobility, big data, and security services. In a highly competitive and fast-paced market such as China, the need to stay relevant and innovative and develop a dynamic business model that adapts quickly to disruptive trends is imperative. This has driven the demand for consulting and integration services for new technologies in the market. At the same time, outsourcing services are being driven by the need for greater agility and cloud adoption.

This market, which is heavily driven by local policies and regulations, makes it challenging for global vendors to thrive. Global players rely on their local partnerships to win large deals in the public and enterprise sector and maintain their growth momentum. At the same time, large local vendors such as Huawei and Digital China have been aggressive in taking over the market share from the global vendors.
