: The South African IT market will continue to grow in local currency terms in 2016, but as wasthe case 2013-2015, we forecast contraction in US dollar terms due to rand depreciation against the USdollar and the negative impact on household purchasing power. The outlook for 2016 is however slightlyless challenging as economic conditions begin to ease, and over the medium term vendors will be able totarget growth opportunities as consumer and business sentiment strengthens. Nonetheless, the IT marketwill continue to primarily be driven by government spending via service expansion and modernisationprogrammes. There is also growing interest in IT solutions among SMEs looking to explore new sales andmarketing channels as well as improve their operational efficiencies, offering new opportunities andmaintaining South Africa's growth rate.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- Computer Hardware Sales: ZAR28.8bn in 2016 to ZAR34.2bn in 2019, a CAGR of 5.8% in localcurrency terms. Rand depreciation represents downside risk by squeezing household purchasing power,resulting in deferred purchases and substitution for cheaper models.

- Software Sales: ZAR18.0bn in 2016 to ZAR23.9bn in 2019, a CAGR of 9.2% in local currency terms.We believe the uptake of cloud-based software, which is less susceptible to piracy and through moreflexible pricing will deepen the market to SMEs, will drive growth in software sales over the mediumterm.
