CompTIA Release Annual Industry Outlook


CompTIA's annual IT Industry Outlook report sees good things ahead.It's a fruitful time to be engaged in the business of IT, at least according to the latest annual report from tech industry association CompTIA. Earlier today, CompTIA released its IT Industry Outlook 2019 report, free copies of which are available to download online. There's plenty to chew on just in the executive summary of the report, which projects, for example, that the global IT industry will grow at a rate of 3.9 percent in 2019. The likely upper limit of projected growth is 6.4 percent, while total growth could ultimately turn out to be as minimal as 1.5 percent. Other items of interest include that the United States is the largest tech market in the work and is projected to account for more than 30 percent of overall IT spending in 2019, a bounteous outflow of $1.6 trillion. The report also identifies 12 trends to watch in 2019, with a detailed summary of what to expect in each area. You don't even have to register to download the full report, so go grab one off the stack.
