This IDC study provides a detailed overview of IT spending trends and forecasts for 17 vertical markets (or sectors) and nine product and service categories in Russia. The study features overviews of key industry developments, industry challenges, and vertical-specific IT drivers and trends and includes tables detailing IT spending by vertical market for each product and service type for the 2012---2017 period. Analysis is based on continuous research, the monitoring of users' IT spending and emerging purchasing patterns, and supply- and demand-side research.
"The trend for double-digit annual IT market growth in Russia came to an end last year. The market will continue to expand nonetheless, fuelled by relatively high oil prices, ongoing preparations for major sporting events, increasing household incomes, and widening Internet penetration. Growth will be particularly noticeable in mobility, software, and IT services." --- Research Manager Victor Pratusevich, IDC Russia
