Research and Markets: Philippines Information Technology Report Q1 2010

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5cf2cd/philippines_inform) has announced the addition of the "Philippines Information Technology Report Q1 2010" report to their offering.

Business Monitor International's Philippines Information Technology Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, information technology associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on the Philippines' information technology industry.

Market Overview BMI expects the Philippine IT market to be a regional outperformer over the next few years, with spending increasing from a projected US$2.5bn in 2010 to around US$4.0bn in 2014. The Philippines has a lower PC penetration than many other Asian countries and offers correspondingly high growth potential over the forecast period, particularly with support from government digital divide and other ICT programmes.

BMI estimates IT spending compound annual growth rate (CAGR) at 12% for 2010-2014, reflecting the fundamental market equation of rising incomes and low PC penetration. Per capita IT spend was estimated at just US$26 in 2009, far lower than in other Asian countries such as Malaysia, and even China. It is forecast to rise to US$41 by 2014. Remittances held up better than expected last year, and wage rises for civil servants in the 2010 budget should help to boost consumer spending. The business process outsourcing (BPO) industry, which accounts for around 30% of IT spending, continues to grow. Surveys last year indicated that many of the Philippines BPO executives felt that the impact of the global economic crisis had not significantly slowed expansion.

Industry Developments

In July 2009, the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CIFT) unveiled a new low-cost desktop that it described as integral to the governments ICT programmes. The Nettop ng Bayan, developed in co-operation with Intel, comes with a widescreen LCD monitor, but no bundled internet connection or software. The new computer is to be affordably priced at around PHP10,800, and it is hoped that this will attract price-sensitive consumers.

In 2009, despite the economic crisis, various government organisations proceeded with projects designed to facilitate delivery of e-services. The Bureau of Customs announced in September 2009 that its Electronic-to-Mobile (e2m) project, to introduce paperless transactions for processing imports documents, will have been implemented in nine ports by the end of the year. The e2m project is just one part of the PHP500mn computerisation programme being undertaken by the bureau, which accounts for around 25% of the government's tax revenues.

One of the biggest challenges for the government is to continue to ensure a supply of HR with appropriate IT skills. In a policy address in August 2009, President Arroyo cited the provision of low-cost desktops to public high school teachers and students as one of six priority areas for her cabinet. The Department of Education, under Chief Jesli Lapus, has unveiled a plan to provide computers in an additional 200 schools, split evenly between elementary and high schools.
