Description

The UK IT Services report identifies consumer attitudes towards corporate digital development, cloud computing, and IT infrastructures in the UK. This market report covers the market size, market forecast, market segmentation and industry trends for the IT Services market in the UK.

Current Market Landscape

The IT services market has shown strong growth throughout the economic disruption of COVID-19 as companies have accelerated their digital programmes in order to remain operative under unprecedented conditions. The market addresses virtually every sector of business and naturally there has been a wide variation in activities between end-use markets.

  • IT represents around 18.5% of the overall turnover of general management consultants.
  • 96% of businesses and 88% of charities use at least one digital service.
  • 58% of private businesses hold some personal customer information electronically.

The new challenge of industry and commerce in 2022 include the impact of rising inflation, which only serves to concentrate the minds of end users on cost control and supply chain security, providing a further stimulus to the dynamic market. Increasingly, IT is involving every discipline of business and this is further stimulating demand for consultancy services, while outsourcing is also buoyant as companies seek to maximise their systems with a strong cost emphasis.

Future Market Trends in IT Services 

Strong continued growth is forecast for the market as further disruptive technologies bring new opportunities and companies seek to integrate the increasingly powerful capabilities of artificial intelligence and machine learning. There are a host of new developments that will sustain the market over the next few years, including quantum computing and edge computing as data volumes continue to spiral. Companies are also continuing to redeploy their IT infrastructures to the cloud.

There are few obstacles to the growth of the market, and this is giving rise to structural changes as companies seek to gain share in what remains a highly competitive and international market.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

This report, written by Terry Leggett, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

COVID-19 accelerated the implementation of digital programs across all sectors, and so boosted the already rapid development of IT services. While businesses initially concentrated on remaining operative, there are long-term implications, including negative effects on some industry sectors, but also new hybrid working practices with all the security implications of remote working. Nonetheless, the fundamental driving forces over the next few years will be the increasingly rapid evolution of technology, involving ever more sophisticated AI and ML capabilities, rapid data transmission becoming increasingly available, and the wider adoption of IoT leading to edge computing alongside cloud capabilities.
