Global IT spending in 2020 will reach $ 3.9 trillion


January 16, 2020 – Among other things, thanks to the fact that a recession was feared but has not yet occurred, according to Gartner, global IT spending will increase by more than 3 percent to $ 3.9 trillion.

According to Gartner market researchers, global IT spending in the current year 2020 will increase by 3.4 percent compared to 2019, to an expected $ 3.9 trillion. For Gartner Vice President John-David Lovelock, this positive prognosis also arises from the fact that, despite the current political uncertainties, the feared recession has not yet occurred and “is still not the most likely scenario for 2020 and beyond.” For 2021, Gartner expects that the four trillion mark will be exceeded.

In Western Europe, IT spending is forecast to increase by as much as 3.69 percent to $ 759.789 billion in 2020. The software segment experienced the greatest growth with 8.72 percent, followed by IT services with 5.2 percent. In contrast, the expenditure on devices fell by 0.57 percent. This does not mean systems for the data center, which should increase by 0.36 percent. The detailed information on the forecast for the world and for Western Europe can be found in the photo gallery.
