According to a recent report, India's spending on information technology (IT) is expected to reach $110.3 billion by 2023, despite the global economic slowdown. The report, which was released by Gartner Inc., a research and advisory company, suggests that India's IT spending will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3% from 2019 to 2023.
The report indicates that the growth in India's IT spending will be driven by several factors, including the rapid adoption of digital technologies, the increasing demand for cloud-based services, and the growing need for data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. The report also suggests that the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital technologies in India, as businesses have had to rapidly adapt to remote work and digital communication.
The report further states that India's IT spending growth rate is expected to outpace the global average, which is expected to be 4% from 2020 to 2023. This is primarily due to the country's large population and rapidly growing economy. The report also notes that India's IT spending will be driven by several industries, including banking and securities, communications, and manufacturing.
The banking and securities industry is expected to have the highest IT spending in India, with a total of $19.3 billion in 2023. The communications industry is expected to be the second largest spender, with a total of $18.2 billion, followed by the manufacturing industry, which is expected to spend $17.4 billion on IT in 2023.
The report also highlights the growing importance of cloud-based services in India's IT spending. Cloud-based services are expected to be the fastest-growing segment, with a CAGR of 17.5% from 2019 to 2023. This growth is driven by the increasing demand for software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions.
Another important trend highlighted in the report is the increasing adoption of data analytics and AI solutions in India. The report suggests that businesses in India are investing heavily in data analytics and AI to improve their operations and gain a competitive edge. The data analytics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.2% from 2019 to 2023, while the AI market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 32.3% over the same period.
The report concludes that India's IT spending growth is expected to continue in the coming years, driven by the increasing adoption of digital technologies, the growing need for cloud-based services, and the increasing importance of data analytics and AI solutions. This growth is expected to outpace the global average and further cement India's position as a leading player in the global IT industry.
