Current State, Emerging Trends & Long-term Developments in the Swiss Software Industry

SUMMARY

This edition of the Swiss Software Industry Survey offers in-depth information about the present state, new trends, and developments of the software industry in Switzerland.

The survey reveals that although the Swiss software sector has plans to create a significant number of jobs in the short-term, the industry's expected revenue growth is pretty moderate. The paper also shows that Swiss software companies are now exporting more than a year ago which is due to the  Swiss sector's reliability and innovativeness.

In terms of profitability, Swiss software companies have decreased their EBIT margins even more in 2017 compared to a year before. And growth expectations are not in a much better position. Software firms in Switzerland expect their revenue to increase at a 5% rate - 9 points less compared to the past year.

Although the numbers in terms of profitability as less promising than desired, the sector is still planning to increase its workforce. Swiss software firms are planning to increase their workforce by over 13% in 2019, which means a total of 20,000 new jobs over the 2018-2019 period.

According to this study, a quarter of the industry's revenue in 2017 came from abroad. Around two-thirds of Swiss software exports were generated by the four large countries, being Germany the most important market. Swiss software products and services are not growingly marketed and sold abroad but also designed abroad, the paper adds.
