The Brazilian scenario for ICT-related policies and strategies can be summarized as 


●  Active public policies for ICT industry development as a cross technology in 

different value chains are on the rise, but still at an early stage 

●  PC penetration rate of less than 25 per cent and federal plans to equip all 

elementary schools with computers (PROUCA) indicates an educational 

priority, but expansion is slow and subject to lagging content development, 

●  There is a scarcity of educated professionals in IT areas  

●  Ambitious government plans to spend US$23 billion on science and 

technology programs as part of its Growth Acceleration Plan (PAC) may face 

budget restraints as the economic scenario deteriorated (higher intlation) 

●  There is a growing “base of the pyramid” consumer sector driven by credit 

and expansion of retail channels in densely populated areas 

●  Mobile market benefits from lower income consumers, but mostly pre-paid,  

●  Major multinational ICT manufacturers have key bases in Brazil  

●  Telecom regulator is looking at ways of accessing Brazil’s more remote 

areas, but there is a growing tension betweeen incumbents, regulators and 

the Executive as State intervention mounts 

●  Main fixed and cable TV operators now rolling out triple-play services and 

looking ahead to quad-play, high-definition digital TV is to become a key 

market as consumers renew their durables for the soccer champinship in 

2014, while the federal government is willing to trade telecom incumbents 

participation in digital TV for a better offer of broadband services at large, 

●  IPTV launches have been rolled out but remain small part of the market

●  Strong State-led initiatives such as the Broadband Plan launched in 2010 

and in 2011 (fostgering ICT related investments for the big sports events), 

●  Pressure on regulatory agency (ANATEL) mounts 

●  Strong presence of State banks (BNDES) and companies in ICT projects. 


ICT research collaboration between Brazilian stakeholders and European 

universities, research centers and private companies can make relevant progress in 

this context. On the one hand, there is an established culture in Brazil, especially 

among the largest universities, to raise funding for technological research with a 

market-led bias, as illustrated by the expanding role of government funding for 

incubators and technological parks.  


On the other hand, in education and culture there is a clear ICT bias in emerging 

programs with a social perspective, such as the PROUCA (one computer per 

student). Despite the macroeconomic constraints in a moment of vigorous 

consumer demand growth and inflationary pressures, there has also been a process 

of consistent expansion of project finance and private credit in areas such as 

logistics, infrastructure, transportation and durable goods. Electronic appliances 

became more accessible and there is a long term perspective of rising digital 

inclusion and further expansion of e-government services. 


This report clearly reflects this reality while at the same time it is clear that the 

private sector, especially the telecom sector incumbents, are entering into a new 

competitive stage which mirrors uncertainties in the realm of broadcasting and 

government control of strategic programs such as broadband access, digital TV 

expansion and megaevents in sports which already mobilize new sources of public 

funding for ICT-related entrepreneurship and innovation.
