Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/09/2014 -- BMI View: China's IT market remains attractive with strong growth prospects resulting from (inter alia) the size of population, rising incomes, relatively low market penetration and a supportive poli tical environment . IT spending growth in China is expected to outperform on a regional and global basis, with a CAGR of 9. 7 % forecast 2014-2018 as IT spending increases as a share of GDP . However, China's IT market is not without its challenges as the pool of first-time buyers diminishes and vendors continue to struggle in the face of ongoing high levels of piracy, cyber security issues and intense competition looking to price-sensitive consumers. BMI believes that t he outlook is positive overall , with the caveats mentioned above.
