[ClickPress, Fri Sep 25 2015] BMI's outlook for South Africa's IT m arket in 2015 is based on a wea kening economic outlook, including rand depreciation against the US dollar and the negative impact on household purchasing power . Over the medium term , the economic environment will continue to present challenges , but there are significant opportunities. The IT market continues to primarily be driven by government spending as well as large enterprises , both of which are expected to slow their spending in the light of a slower economy . However , there is growing interest in IT solutions among SMEs looking to explore new sales and marketing channels as well as improve their operational efficiencies , offering new opportunities and maintaining South Africa's growth rate .

Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer Hardware Sales: ZAR26.1bn in 2014 to ZAR27.8bn in 2015, up 6.2% in local currency terms. Rand depreciation represents downside risk by squeezing household purchasing power.
Software Sales: ZAR16.0bn in 2014 to ZAR17.1bn in 2015, up 7.1% in local currency terms. We believe the uptake of cloud-based software, which is less susceptible to piracy, will drive growth in software sales, and be particularly important in unlocking the small-and medium-sized enterprise market.
IT Services Sales: ZAR25.8bn in 2014 to ZAR28.8bn in 2015, up 11.6% in local currency terms. We expect IT services will be the outperforming IT market segment as cloud computing and business process outsourcing adoption supports a robust growth rate.
