Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/28/2014 -- Our bullish outlook for the continued development of Chile's IT market over the medium term remains in place, however we expect growth to be held back slightly in 2015 by the depreciation of the peso against the US dollar. Looking at the medium term, we believe high levels of spending per capita and the highest PC penetration rate in the region, bodes well for growth of software and IT services in the market - an important sign of market maturity. Nevertheless, there is still significant growth from hardware sales, with new form factors, such as tablets, enabling volume growth to continue, even as the value of the market grows at a slower pace. Meanwhile, Chile's forward-looking government supports the rate of ICT growth with key developments such as the Imagine Chile Digital Agenda for 2013-2020 and a move to encourage entrepreneurship among IT companies.

Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer Hardware Sales: We expect sales to rise to CLP886bn in 2015, an increase of 6.1%. Tablet sales forecast to outperform again in 2015 but we also forecast a return to growth for the notebook market.
