Worldwide IT spending is expected to rise 3.2 percent year-on-year in 2019 to USD 3.76 trillion, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, which said all segments will exhibit growth despite uncertainty fueled by recession rumours, Brexit, and trade wars and tariffs. Gartner said spending is moving from saturated segments such as mobile phones, PCs and on-premises data centre infrastructure to cloud services and Internet of Things(IoT) devices. For 2020, growth will be 2.8 percent, for a total of USD 3.875 billion.
