Our survey of UK technology companies suggests that 2018 will be a great year for the sector. The vast majority (82%) are very or somewhat confident about the general outlook for 2018, and confidence is even higher when it comes to achieving significant revenue growth.

A huge 86% of tech companies expect 2018 to be a better year than 2017 for their business. One respondent expresses this particularly well and expects their business to “grow irrespective of [the] economy”.

Tech companies’ positivity is based on the impact of recent investment decisions (e.g. in technology and talent), the development of new products or services, the impact of recent or expected M&A and greater market awareness or readiness for their offering.

We take a closer look at the strategic growth plans businesses will be implementing and challenges causing concern. We also highlight the tech that’s set to disrupt, the sectors in line for disruption and share our thoughts to what 2018 may hold.
