In distinction from Ukraine, where sales of computers dropped during the crisis, Belarus is witnessing sales growth. The global market for computer devices has been rising annually by about 7-10 percent, with the Belarusian market demonstrating a similar trend (according to Intel representatives).
Moreover, Belarus is seeing sustained interest in server solutions, while sales of mobile devices are rising. As a result, our market is becoming interesting to the largest producer of processors: Intel. However, the company does not plan to purchase any Belarusian companies or open a research laboratory in the country.
Around million PCs are sold worldwide daily and, by 2015, the global market looks set to reach 500m sales. By 2020, four billion Internet users will be registered (with 31bn devices boasting Internet connection).
