Key insights include:

  • U.S.-based tech industry executives continue to show moderate optimism about revenue growth. As the tech industry road map continues to evolve, the trend in the next one to two years is for revenue growth to be driven increasingly by markets outside the United States, China and India.
  • Challenges such as losing market share due to lower-cost providers, and political and regulatory uncertainties, ranked as the top threats to tech companies’ business models. In addition, labor costs and pricing pressures were seen as growth barriers.
  • Increased adoption of cloud and mobile technologies, the rise of new market entrants, global expansion and growing concerns about economic pressures -- in almost every market in the world -- are creating challenges and opportunities for the tech sector.
  • We hope you find the survey results insightful and welcome feedback about the findings.
