- Turkey is heavily reliant on exports to the eurozone, and a slowdown in Europe will certainly have a serious impact on the Turkish economy. GDP growth is currently forecast to fall from the highs of 7.5% in 2011 to 3.5% in 2012 (source: EIU). IDC forecasts IT spending growth of 10% in 2012; however, if the European situation deteriorates further, resulting in a substantial fall in exports and foreign investment, it will severely affect sectors such as manufacturing and textiles in Turkey, and could bring IT spending growth down to the neighborhood of 5–7%.

- NFC has already made considerable impact in Turkey. Turkcell, the country’s leading mobile operator has a successful mobile-wallet service called Cep-T Cüzdan. Similarly, Avea, the mobile arm of Turk Telecom, has launched its NFC offering in association with Garanti Bank. IDC expects other countries in the region to try and replicate such services.
