Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/07/2013 -- BMI View: Indian IT spending is expected to reach US$24.4bn in 2013, up 19%, with government IT procurements at state and federal level helping to generate spending. Following double-digit growth in PC sales in H212, BMI expects a continued upwards trajectory in 2013, with IT Services in the vanguard. India's potentially vast IT market appears set to remain one of the region's growth opportunities owing to a growing economy and healthy consumer sentiment. Realisation of the market's long-term potential depends on raising India's low computer penetration and the government's ambitions to connect the vast rural areas to the outside world. The next layer of tier-3 and tier-4 towns, beyond the top 75 cities in India, is expected to be the major growth driver for the next few years, due to rising PC penetration.

The country achieved a relatively high IT Market score of 52.5, reflecting the potential returns, but its overall rating was lowered by a Country Structure score of just 15, the joint-second lowest in the region.
Key Trends & Developments.
- In 2013, there are expected to be strong growth opportunities in the next 200-400 smaller cities in India, where vendors are expanding their retail and distribution presence. Around 45% of new PCs sold in the Indian market are now shipping outside the top 75 cities. The government's policy of providing tax breaks and subsidies for hardware manufacturers should help keep prices down and support growth.
