Brazil’s IT sector stands out as much for its flexibility as its firepower. This high-tech country is mainly impressive for its innovative power, service orientation and its enormous potential market: the Eito market research institute predicts 6% growth to €92 billion in its ICT market in 2012. Brazil is considered one of the world’s fastest-growing economies overall.
Brazil is not just an economic engine. It is a market with a future as well. The seventh largest economy in the world boasts a high gross domestic product; rising income and state investments promote an interest in high-quality ICT solutions. Infrastructure programs such as the expansion of broadband into the countryside are strengthening demand and driving the formation of high-tech companies.
Brazil is already one of the leading players in IT business-process outsourcing. Experts expect more growth in this segment. Besides the government commitment, it benefits from a growing number of qualified specialists.
