Electronics.ca Publications announces the availability of a new report entitled "Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) 2009 Top 10 Predictions: Economic Pressure Cooker Still Leaves Pockets of Opportunity".

Despite the global economic slow down, in 2009, the Asia/Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) region still presents great opportunities as both emerging economies and emerging technologies continue to chart advancements, according to the report. While it is expected that most businesses will rethink their growth strategies, there will still be pockets of opportunities as APEJ bounces back.

Even while overall IT spending slows, the negative economic force will actually intensify the focus on emerging markets and emerging technologies, as businesses look to cut costs, improve business models, and reach their customers more effectively. IT companies looking for growth in 2009 will need to accelerate their pace of change and align their offerings with the pockets of opportunity that these new marketplaces provide.

Compared to the US and the rest of the world APEJ is still viewed as the bright spot with IT spending expected to reach US$196 billion by year-end 2009. It is predicted that in 2009, the APEJ IT market growth will slow from the previous forecast of 9.5% to a 'post-crisis' forecast of 5.8%. While a decline in IT spending is expected with some areas of spending pulled back further than others, there will be pockets of opportunities which will remain as the economic pressures accelerates growth in emerging technologies and in emerging markets.

The PC and peripherals markets are expect to be hit the hardest, with consumer spending declining and businesses stretching existing product shelf-lives, whereas the services market, operating on longer contract cycles, should have a better ongoing revenue streams. Public sector spending will increase to offset weakening economies and essential services such as utilities and telecommunications will witness less change to IT expenditure. While projections for economic growth in virtually all countries have been lowered for 2009 and 2010, many APEJ countries boast GDP growth well above the worldwide average of 1.8% for 2009 (e.g., India with 6.8%, China with 8.0%, and Vietnam with 5.3%). Therefore it is expected that many APEJ countries' IT markets will continue to grow at greater rates than expected worldwide.

The current economic meltdown coincides with the availability of rapidly maturing cloud-based services that are offered by a wide range of vendors. New mode of acquiring and delivering services promises the valuable benefit of low up-front costs combined with usage-based pricing are now available. These benefits alone will ensure that this new model will be considered as a viable alternative to traditional delivery models and as a result, it is forecast that the use of cloud-based services will increase in 2009 despite, and because of, the economic conditions.

While most markets decline during tight economic times, IP contact center revenue across APEJ is predicted to increase from US$278 million in 2008 to US$518 million in 2012 at 17% compound annual growth rate (CAGR), accelerated by the economic pressure to keep customers. These new disruptive technologies will dramatically transform contact centers and create the next generation of customer contact in 2009.

Mini notebooks, a new product category created due to demand for devices that support mobility, are expected to increase from around 5% of total notebooks shipped in the APEJ region in 2008 to more than 10% in 2009. The small cutesy form factor will be the primary selling point, but it will also change the way these devices are being used. With limited processing power and storage, users will be heavily dependent on being connected to the Internet, eventually running applications through the cloud. This demand for connectivity will further change the way mini notebooks are sold - instead of retail stores, partnerships with mobile operators are expected to proliferate with devices sold in service bundles like mobile phones, leveraging operators' cellular 3G infrastructures.
