Information Technology Sales Growth Continues Sale

Information Technology Survey: 2000 financial year

Information Technology Sales Growth Continues

Sales of Information Technology (IT) goods and services were $11.1 billion for the 2000 financial year according to latest results from Statistics New Zealand's Information Technology Survey. This is an increase of 6.9 per cent from the previous year. Since the IT survey began in the 1994 financial year, sales of IT goods and services have grown every year, at a mean growth rate of 10.4 per cent.

Growth in IT sales in the 2000 financial year was largely driven by a 14.5 per cent increase in sales of computer services and a 5.0 per cent increase in sales of communication services.

Exports of IT goods and services have increased 10.7 per cent to $0.9 billion between the 1999 and 2000 financial years. The main increases were a 26.0 per cent increase in exports of communication hardware and cables and a 4.6 per cent increase in exports of communication services.

Sales of IT goods and services to New Zealand end-users increased 5.3 per cent to $7.8 billion in the 2000 financial year. This increase is mainly a result of a 16.5 per cent increase in sales to New Zealand end-users of computer services. Sales to New Zealand end-users of communication services increased 4.2 per cent.

Total sales to businesses that on-sell the IT goods or services increased 10.6 per cent to reach $2.5 billion. Growth in this area was largely driven by a 27.6 per cent increase in sales of single-user computer hardware.

The Information Technology Survey is jointly sponsored by Statistics New Zealand, Ministry of Economic Development, Trade New Zealand and the Information Technology Association of New Zealand.
