1 - The ITC Market in 2011
Economic and political turbulence in 2011 added to trends observed last year, deriving from a polarization between emerging economies, which show growth and development, have a young population and offer big oppor tunities, and advanced economies, which are facing difficulties, have a high debt level, a progressively aging population and domestic markets that can no longer suppor t development.
2 - The Global ICT Market
The global ICT market grew by 4.3% (0.5% less compared to the growth recorded in 2010) thanks to the size and relevance of markets in emerging Countries and to good per formance in some major markets such as the United States and Germany, totalling 3,336 billion dollars
3 - The Global Telecommunications Market
In 2011 the global telecommunications market exceeded for the first time 2,000 billion dollars to reach 2,045 billion dollars (Fig. 3), thus confirming a solid growth trend: + 5.7%, better than in 2010 (+ 5.1%). This increase was driven by new generation networks (LTE), ultrabroadband networks, 3G and smart phones, which have led the entire world market to unprecedented results and to record mobile data traffic.
4 - The Global IT Market
In 2011 the global IT market went up by 2.2% - a lower growth compared to 4.2% in 2010, due to factors associated to the economic situation as well as to structural factors – and exceeded a value of 1,291 billion dollars
5 - The TLC Market in Europe
In 2011 the total value of the European telecommunications market stood at 358.9 billion Euros, showing a negative trend (- 1.5%). This drop was caused by services (-2%), slightly down compared to 2010 in the main markets (UK, Germany, France, Spain), while revenues deriving from equipment recorded a growth (+1.7%), in line with 2010 per formance.
6 - The IT Market in Europe
The European economy slowed down in 2011. GDP increased by 1.4%, less then anticipated at the beginning of the year. Domestic demand was disappointing in terms of consumption and investment, expor t per formance was better. All major European Countries were affected by worsened economic conditions, as shown by GDP trends in each Country, although with differences from Country to Country.
7 - The Global Digital Market in Italy
In 2011 the Global Digital Market in Italy was 69,312 million Euros, down by 2,2% compared to 2010 (Fig. 8). The better per formance of the Global Digital Market compared to the traditional ICT market (-3.6%) derives from innovative elements and by devices that belong to the ICT sector: tablets, smar t phones, IOT, videocommunication systems, e-readers, digital contents.
8 - The TLC Market in Italy
A modernization process continued in 2011, despite the economic crisis, but hindrances postponed the installation of high per formance broadband networks into users’ homes. 2011 was anyway an impor tant year since a tender to assign 4G/LTE frequencies was completed in September and all operators submitted their bids.
9 - The IT Market in Italy
In Europe, the Italian IT market was most affected by the economic crisis. It dropped by 4.1% to 17.7 billion Euros, showing a gap compared to other major Countries (Fig. 11) except for Spain. Economic difficulties and, in par ticular, negative domestic demand trends, have negatively affected the IT market in Italy, translating into a reduction in investment in new projects by large corporations and government bodies and an even more conservative approach to investment in IT by small businesses.
10 - The Digital Media Market in Italy
The already dynamic new media market witnessed further strong innovation. Switch off from analogue TV to ground digital TV continued at a quick pace and will be completed by summer 2012.
11 - Applications Solutions and Services
In 2011, after a number of years of growth, the business intelligence (BI) market suffered from the slowdown of the IT market and repor ted a slight decrease (- 0.5%) to about 450 million Euros. However investment in BI is still a priority for CIOs: Italian companies increasingly need to use data from other company functions (purchasing, sales, production, etc.) to develop effective business actions.
12 - Evolving Areas
Many changes in the ICT market are taking place in specific sectors
13 - E-commerce
Growth of B2C e-commerce in Italy is back to almost pre-crisis 2007 levels (Fig. 16), from an annual +17% in 2010 to +20% in 2011; the value of on-line sales from Italian web sites has reached over 8 billion Euros. There are two main reasons for B2C ecommerce growth in our Country.
15 - ICT and Global Digital Market in Italy: Expected Trend in 2012
Estimates relating to the Italian IT market are based on continuing economic uncer tainty; benefits may derive from a more dynamic second half of 2012. It is estimated that the market will continue to drop, although less than in the previous year: -2.3%.
