The US IT sector in numbers

IT sector

When it comes to the IT sector in the US, the numbers tell a big story – and go some way to demonstrating how and why this already-large industry still has scope for further growth.

The below infographic, from Foothold America, demonstrates:

· Almost 12 million Americans work in IT – more than the entire population of Belgium.
· $3.6 billion was invested into research and development in IT in 2017 alone – the majority coming from foreign-owned firms.
· AI and cyber security are the two key focusses for growth, with AI on track to more than double in revenue between 2015 and 2020 and cyber security to grow by 14% between 2019 and 2024.

Check out the full infographic for stats that show why expansion to the US is something many businesses consider.
