US IT Services Revenue to Increase 4.7% Yearly in Nominal Terms to 2023


Cleveland, OH, February 21, 2019 — Revenues for the US IT services industry are forecast to grow 4.7% annually in nominal terms through 2023, according to IT Services: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. The ongoing economy-wide shift from on-site capabilities to XaaS (“anything-as-a-service”) solutions will underpin gains. In addition, the continued proliferation of mobile and internet of things (IoT) devices – appliances and other everyday objects enhanced with electronics and network connectivity – will drive the need for larger amounts of data storage and processing capacity accessible via the internet. For comparison to a long-established business model, mobile and smart devices can be thought of as printers and cloud services as ink, a source of recurring profit. In addition, the swelling value of data stored in company servers combined with the increasing sophistication of cyberattacks will support spending on security services and upgrades over the forecast period. Further growth will be restrained by competition from in-house capabilities maintained by potential customers.

These and other key insights are featured in IT Services: United States. This report forecasts to 2023 US IT service revenues in nominal US dollars. Total revenue is segmented by type in terms of:
