Brazil is the world’s 6th largest economy and the 5th largest ICT market.
According to a recent IDC study, the Brazilian ITC sector turned over $102.6 billion in 2011, 11.3% more than the previous year. And, the sector is poised to continuous growth at high rates. Gartner estimates a 10% increase in 2012, well above the global average of 4.6%.
The country is also the world’s fifth-largest online market with over 75 million daily internet users and 2nd largest user base for both Facebook and Twitter, making it a fertile ground for the IT market to flourish across multiple economic sectors.
