Bangalore: The global IT spending is set to reach the total of $3.8 trillion this year, a 4.1 percent increase from 2012 spending of $3.6 trillion, reports the market analyst, Gartner. In constant dollar terms, spending will increase by 4 percent.

The global telecom services market continues to be the largest IT spending market and will remain roughly flat over the new several years, with declining spending on voice services counterbalanced by strong growth in spending on mobile data services.

 “Consumers and enterprises will continue to purchase a mix of IT products and services; nothing is going away completely. However, the ratio of this mix is changing dramatically and there are clear winners and losers over the next three to five years, as we see more of a transition from PCs to mobile phones, from servers to storage, from licensed software to cloud, or the shift in voice and data connections from fixed to mobile,” said John Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.
