BMI View: Software and services spending growth is forecast to drive the South Korean IT market throughout the medium term. Penetration of cloud computing and Internet of Things solutions will increase, driven by the strength of the South Korean ICT ecosystem, which includes global leading vendors and government support. The hardware outlook is more mixed, where hybrid notebooks are expected to record volume growth, but tablets face a growing threat from phablets that have proved hugely popular.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments
- Computer Hardware Sales: KRW11.5trn in 2016 to KRW12.3trn in 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.5%. PC saturation and threat to tablet replacement spending by the trend towards larger
and more powerful smartphones will be a drag on growth, but hybrid notebooks should be a bright spot.
- Software Sales: KRW6.3trn in 2016 to KRW7.8trn in 2020, a CAGR of 5.3%. Advanced solution demand from key verticals such as financial services will offset the price squeeze from emerging market vendors and cloud solutions.
- IT Services Sales: KRW8.8trn in 2016 to KRW11.2trn in 2020, a CAGR of 6.1%. A base of local vendors and supportive government policies means South Korea is positioned well for cloud computing and Internet of Things growth.
