BMI View: A contraction in IT hardware spending dragged Malaysia's IT market down in 2015 as the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax exacerbated the negative impact of ringgit depreciation on PC spending. The hardware segment, and overall IT market, will strengthen in 2016 but downside persists, before moving to a faster growth trajectory from 2017 for all three segments. We are positive on household income trends that will support retail PC spending and drive upgrades, as well as unlock deferred purchases. We expect the stronger domestic economy to also boost enterprise software and services investment, with cloud computing expected to be an area of outperformance. We forecast total IT spending will increase at a CAGR of 6.8% 2016-2020 to MYR26.3bn in 2020.
