India’s IT spend to reach $124.6 billion in 2024, up 10.7%: Gartner


According to Gartner’s latest forecast, India’s IT spending is projected to reach $124.6 billion in 2024, marking a 10.7% increase from 2023. This growth follows a period of flat growth (-0.5%) in 2023 and will be primarily driven by investments in software, IT services, and devices. The most significant year-on-year increase is expected in the devices and IT services segment.

Gartner predicts a 10% growth in device spending in 2024, rebounding from a negative growth of -7% in 2023. Similarly, IT services, which experienced a 6.5% growth in 2023, is anticipated to surge by 14.6% in 2024.

Naveen Mishra, Vice President and Team Manager at Gartner, stated that Indian organizations are likely to invest in artificial intelligence (AI) and automation to enhance operational efficiency and address the shortage of IT talent. However, he noted that it won’t be until 2025 that generative AI (GenAI) starts making a notable impact on IT budgeting in Indian organizations.

This trend in India’s IT spending aligns with global patterns, as Gartner predicts an overall IT growth of 8% for 2024, compared to 3.5% in 2023. IT services are expected to see a growth of 10.4% in 2024, up from a single-digit growth of 7.3% in 2023.

Despite the buzz around GenAI, it is not projected to be a major spending factor until 2025. John-David Lovelock, Distinguished Vice President Analyst at Gartner, noted that in 2023 and 2024, very little IT spending will be tied to GenAI.

However, organizations continue to invest in AI and automation to increase operational efficiency and bridge IT talent gaps. Mishra added that while investments in AI and GenAI will contribute to IT spending growth in India, their impact on spending levels will not be evident until 2025. The positive aspect is the expected comeback of devices, including phones, smartphones, laptops, and personal computers.

This resurgence is anticipated due to numerous product launches in 2024, driven by consumers’ need to refresh their devices, especially phones, with enterprises also undergoing a refresh cycle to a smaller extent.
