Posted 5/5/2021 by Yvonne Moffat

Scotland’s tech sector has weathered a difficult year and remains optimistic about the year ahead, according to the latest annual survey launched today by ScotlandIS.

The survey, the annual barometer for the tech sector, shows that Scotland’s tech sector remained resilient with almost half of survey participants increasing their sales and profit margins, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and uncertainty following Brexit. Optimism about the year ahead remains very high, with some 77% of respondents saying they are very optimistic about the next 12 months.

ScotlandIS has also announced the launch of its 2021 Manifesto for the Scottish Parliament elections. It offers a series of recommendations for stakeholders across Scotland to embrace digital transformation, to upskill the nation’s workforce and citizens.

Karen Meechan, Interim CEO of ScotlandIS, said: “Scotland’s digital and tech sector has shown its mettle this year, with resilience across the board. This has been a difficult year as companies have had to adapt quickly to the pressures brought by the pandemic and the uncertainty of Brexit.

"As a sector we will continue to grow through collaboration and can look forward to a year of strong growth to come.”
