-- The Polish market for ITC related products and services are of a size comparable to Sweden. In 2011 the Polish ITC market consumed more than 10 billion USD (31.3 billion PLN) of products and services.
“The Polish ITC market has demonstrated a steady and consistent pattern of growth – in 2011 it grew almost 9%,” says Jakub Polkowski Associate Partner with TBK Consult Poland. "All segments of the market (especially IT solutions for mobile devices as well as cloud computing) are providing interesting business opportunities for foreign IT companies. Poland, as the biggest Central-Eastern European country, is also breeding an increasing number of software vendors, who are looking to expand internationally. Using the TBK Consult network and tool set, we are now well positioned to help both foreign providers into the Polish market, as well as helping the Polish vendor community with realizing their ambitions for global growth.”
The Polish ITC market reacted positively in the recent period of economic slowdown and was one of the few countries that emerged unscathed from the crisis. Poland represents an attractive opportunity for international vendors, who wish to locate their IT development centres or sales in Poland. According to a survey conducted in 2010 and 2011 among the 200 largest IT companies in Poland, 90% of them believe in continued growth in 2012. From an investors’ point of view, Poland is still treated as a “promising land to invest” in Europe and a “golden gate” for further development in Eastern European countries and Russia.
"We are extremely pleased to have Jakub Polkowski joining TBK Consult in Poland and thus expand our reach into the fast growing Eastern European markets", says Hans Peter Bech, CEO of TBK Consult. "With Jakub on board we can now help our clients with bootstrapping, bridgehead and scaling initiatives in the important and fast growing Polish market. Jakub is also well positioned to assist the Polish software industry realizing their global potential."
