Worldwide IT spending to grow 0.6% in 2016 - Gartner

Monday 18 January 2016 | 14:25 CET | News
Worldwide IT spending is forecast to total USD 3.54 trillion in 2016, just a 0.6 percent increase over 2015 spending of USD 3.52 trillion, according to a report by Gartner. 2015 saw the largest USD drop in IT spending since the research firm began tracking IT spending. USD 216 billion less was spent on IT in 2015 than in 2014 and 2014 spending levels won't be surpassed until 2019, the same report said. The rising U.S. dollar was to blame for the 2015 results, researchers explained. The devices market (PCs, ultramobiles, mobile phones, tablets and printers) is forecast to decline 1.9 percent
