The World Bank provides a bit different data. Its methodology uses the data from the National Bank, but besides computer and information services, it adds telecommunication services and “Other business services”. Unlike computer and information services, these items have shown multi-directional dynamics in recent years, which has led to a significant difference in data. This methodology also identifies certain flaws in national statistics: it is obvious that some segment of “other business services” is included into the software development market, but it is difficult to determine which one. However, regardless of the data source, there is consensus on market growth and development in Ukraine. In the period from 2011 to 2016, the market increased: according to Ukrstat – by 2.7 times, according to the NBU – by 2.9 times and according to the PwC – also by 2.9 times. Today the market is the largest foreign currency supplier among services sectors and the third one in Ukraine in general, while being behind only the export of food products and raw materials for their production and ferrous and non-ferrous metals and products made from them.
