The Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting, and Statistics (DGBAS) has reduced the 2019 Taiwan GDP forecast from 2.5% to 2.1% due to the overall weak economic market, especially the decline in the export growth rate caused by the decreasing demand on materials and products such as electronics, metal, plastic, chemical, optical, electrical goods, and textiles.
The Taiwan Government has announced three programs, namely, the “Returning Companies Investment Action Plan” (歡迎台商回台投資行動方案), the “Taiwanese Companies Accelerated Investment Action Plan” (根留台灣企業加速投資行動方案), and the “Small and Medium Companies Accelerated Investment Action Plan” (中小企業加速投資行動方案) to encourage Taiwanese companies abroad to return and invest in Taiwan from 2019 to 2021. IDC believes that this will spur IT spending in the country, driven by the growth in managed services, hardware deployment, software deployment, custom application development, and systems integration services.
IDC believes that IT spending for the BFSI, manufacturing, and public sectors will increase:
