  • IDC

This IDC study provides an analysis of Western European vertical market indicators aimed at understanding the structure, size, and economic importance on a country level of all major Western European industry sectors.

The focus is on GDP contribution of vertical markets to total GDP on a country level and employment numbers by vertical market in the 16 Western European countries in 2010. To assess IT sophistication and efficiency, the study presents IT/GDP and IT/employee ratios by vertical market in the 16 Western European countries.

Vertical markets covered include agriculture, construction, mining; discrete manufacturing; process manufacturing; transport; communications; utilities; retail/wholesale; finance; central and local government; healthcare; education; business services; and other services.

"The Western European economic region is characterized by diversities and fragmentation. The recession further deepened country differences, making it even more important to gain a clear understanding of country differences from a vertical market perspective in order to build an effective IT planning strategy," said Nina Bonagura, senior research analyst, European Vertical Markets, IDC.
