BMI View: The German IT market is forecast to increase to US$63.7bn in 2013, up by around 4%, with positive growth despite the eurozone currency crisis. In H112, German businesses and consumers remained wary because of the risk of a new recession in the eurozone. The PC market reported modest single-digit growth in Q112, against a deteriorating economic backdrop. The market had contracted sharply in 2011 as a result of excess inventories and consumer and business caution, intensified by the eurozone currency crisis. Over the next five years, we forecast a more favourable outlook for the German IT market, with areas of opportunity including tablets and cloud computing.
