The decline in global commodities prices resulted in peso depreciation, and so lower purchasing power for Chilean households and enterprises in global markets in 2015, which resulted in slower IT market growth through deferred purchases. This drag will continue into 2016, but to a lesser extent. The medium-term outlook is much stronger, however, with IT spending expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% 2016-2020 to CLP2.78trn in 2020. This will reinforce Chile's position as the most lucrative IT market in Latin America in per capita terms. In terms of IT market segments, IT services are expected to grow the most in Chile throughout our forecast period as businesses increasingly opt for cloud computing solutions to cut costs. Downside risk could derail this core scenario, and we highlight a potential hard landing in China as the biggest risk to Chile's IT market in 2016.
