As was the case for many regional markets, Brazilian IT demand was hurt by US dollar appreciation in 2015, but the decline in Brazil was particularly severe due to the negative impact of the commodity downturn and domestic political uncertainty. We believe the IT market contracted 16% in 2015 - and with recession forecast to extend into 2016 we expect the IT market to contract again, but at a much slower rate. After this negative shock we expect IT spending to resume on a growth trajectory from 2017 as the economy recovers and the real appreciates, supporting a CAGR of 5.1% for 2016-2019 to total IT spending of BRL109.2bn in 2019. We highlight opportunities in the enterprise markets for cost efficiency and flexibility generating solutions in the short-term during hte period of economic uncertainty - and emerging technologies such as Internet of Things solutions and cloud computing over the medium term.
