These are the key findings from the presentation of the anticipation of Assinform report for the year 2013 related to the ICT market Italian and continental.

    The survey data confirm that, in the face of a real economy worldwide grew in 2012 by 3.2% over the previous year, the digital economy, marched to the speed of +5.2 %, reaching to cover almost 6% of world GDP. In Europe the average rate of growth of the digital economy stood at 0.6%, but the weight of the digital economy has come to 6.8% of European GDP.

Development of digital content and online advertising, the software segment and new ICT solutions, the music and publishing online, the boom of smartphones, eReaders and tablets and innovative services associated with them, not only show that these segments are not affected of the crisis, but they are already in the Italian economy, growing on average by 7.5% and contributing to significant changes in consumption patterns and business. But what is happening in a national context still not very sensitive to innovation, where a company for each new investment is a real chance, so that best practices remain isolated phenomena and do not acquire the necessary size to affect the negative trends and to offset the crisis of IT traditional.
