BMI View:

Malaysian IT spending is expected to reach US$5.6bn in 2013, up 7%, although economic activity is expected to slow over the coming quarters. Demand for IT products and services is forecast to stay resilient overall, even as economic growth moderates. There should be several areas of opportunity,
particularly in key spending verticals such as telecoms, and a new government Digital Malaysia Plan was unveiled in 2012. Spending on IT products and services should be boosted by growing enterprise and government interest in cloud computing, and ICT-friendly budget measures, but much will depend on confidence in a sustainable economic recovery. Malaysia's IT market is distinguished by a marked digital divide and, in the Klang Valley area around Kuala Lumpur, a mature urban population surpasses even some developed nations in terms of IT adoption on some indicators.

Headline Expenditure Projections:

Computer hardware sales: US$2.7bn in 2012 to US$2.9bn in 2013, +6% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar terms upwardly revised due to to macroeconomic factors, and PC sales will be supported by the government's push for greater broadband penetration.
