Spending on IT products and services in China could enjoy significant growth over the next three years as a result of fiscal stimulus policies introduced in the country, according to Gartner.
Principle research analyst at the firm Oliver Xu explained that the most visible areas of investment are likely to be in transportation, construction and healthcare, while telecoms is set to be the most in-demand segment.
He predicted that the peak of stimulus-driven spending could occur during 2010, as a result of the policies being completed halfway through last year.
Mr Xu noted: "The Chinese government is seeking to counter the decline in its export trade by encouraging domestic demand and it appears that it is succeeding."
As well as several subsidy programmes, Gartner explained that the state introduced a 4 trillion yuan (£362 billion) package to aid public organisations and infrastructure.
The group recently predicted that global IT spending could increase by 4.6 per cent this year.
