Abstract: The PREDICT project focuses on analysing the supply of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and Research and Development (R&D) in ICT in Europe, with comparison to major competitors worldwide. The PREDICT 2016 dataset covers data from 40 countries, which contribute to most of the world’s ICT production and R&D. It is based on available data for the period 2006 – 2013 from official sources such as Eurostat, the OECD and National Statistics Offices. The data have been prepared using the 2007 OECD definition of the ICT sector, based on the International Standard Industry Classification (ISIC 4). This report offers a condensed graphic presentation of the dataset. To portray the global, European and national ICT industry, the Key Facts report presents four essential variables: Value-added, Employment, Productivity and Business Expenditures on R&D (BERD) of the ICT sector. The report is structured under four headings: Key Facts 1: Global trends in the ICT industry; Key Facts 2: Benchmarking EU in the World; Key Facts 3: Benchmarking EU28 Member States; and Key Facts 4: Industry specialisation patterns. Each part of the report investigates the dynamics of these variables from a different perspective and looks at the relationships between them. It describes the main trends observed: the resilience of the sector throughout the crisis, the emergence of ICT services, the evolution of productivity and R&D expenditures, and the new global division of labour.
