BMI View: South Korean IT spending is expected to reach US$20.3bn in 2013, up 6%, with consumer and
business segment IT growth expected to moderate as its economy remains subdued throughout the year.
However, South Koreans have experienced a rapid increase in per capita incomes (in US dollar terms) in
recent years, and, as the economy remains on a solid growth track, despite a forecast deceleration in 2013,
we believe South Koreans will increasingly choose to spend on IT products due to a substantial increase in
their disposable incomes. There will be a number of key drivers and growth trends including cloud
computing, IT outsourcing and industry-specific software applications.
Computer Hardware Sales: US$4.7bn in 2012 to US$4.7bn in 2013, +1% in US dollar terms. Forecast in
US dollar terms is downwardly revised but form factors such as tablets will provide growth areas in 2013,
as well as tablets and other devices based on the Windows 8 operating system.
