Gartner Inc. Research Report

On July 2, 2013, Gartner Inc. announced that according to its latest forecast, worldwide IT spending is projected to total $3.7 trillion in 2013, a 2% increase from 2012 spending of $3.6 trillion. The Company reported that last quarter, its forecast for 2013 IT spending growth in U.S. dollars was 4.1% YoY. According to the Company, the 2.1% reduction mainly shows the impact of recent fluctuations in US Dollar exchange rates. Richard Gordon Managing Vice President at the Company said, "Exchange rate movements, and a reduction in our 2013 forecast for devices, account for the bulk of the downward revision of the 2013 growth. Regionally, 2013 constant-currency spending growth in most regions has been lowered. However, Western Europe's constant-currency growth has been inched up slightly as strategic IT initiatives in the region will continue despite a poor economic outlook."
