BMI View: Hong Kong's emerging position as a regional data centre and cloud services hub helps to
sustain growth above that seen in developed markets in other regions. The primary driver of cloud
investment will be demand from Hong Kong's large financial services industry, and opportunities for
regional expansion. Meanwhile, the high penetration of products in the retail market will mean relatively
slower growth in spending, with Hong Kong having high penetration of traditional form factors - and the
highest penetration of tablets in the world in 2013. We forecast IT spending in Hong Kong reaching
HKD47.7bn in 2014, with growth of 6.3% in local currency terms. There is, however, downside to this
outlook, with a potential hard landing in China likely to severely disrupt Hong Kong's economy and IT
market.

Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer Hardware Sales: HKD20.1bn in 2013 to HKD21.1bn in 2014, +5.4% in local currency terms.
The decline in desktop and notebook sales should slow in 2014 as baseline upgrade demand volume comes
closer; however, we also expect a slowdown in tablet growth due to high penetration rates.
Software Sales: HKD11.2bn in 2013 to HKD11.8bn in 2014, +5.9% in local currency terms. Enterprise
software demand for complex deployments remains, but high penetration of basic deployments limits the
overall growth rate.
