ICT Investment Trends in China: Enterprises’ initiatives inclined towards digitization fuelling ICT investments

Summary

Improvements in industrial production, construction, exports, and investments have led to a robust start for the Chinese economy in Q1 2017. This will definitely boost ICT investments across various industries. China’s economy is holding up better than expected, reaching a GDP growth of 6.9% in Q1 2017.

Optimism also stems from the fact that the proportion of respondents who intend to reduce their ICT budget in 2017 has remained constant at 12%. Moreover, it appears that 2017 will witness a significant drop (of 17%) in the proportion of Chinese enterprises whose ICT budget allocation will remain unchanged compared to 2016. However, ICT vendors need to understand the dynamics and ensure a proper pricing and service quality strategy to gain profits in such a highly competitive marketplace.

IoT has emerged as the next ground-breaking technology segment. With the benefits of reduced operational time and human intervention, IoT technologies such as network sensors, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), and auto ID & mobility technologies are gaining popularity among Chinese enterprises. While employing survival strategies and increasing customer satisfaction are the primary business objectives influencing IT investment strategies among Chinese enterprises, financial stability is the most sought after criterion in choosing ICT vendors.
