MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

The operating lease is a contract through which it is possible to get the supply of goods necessary for the activity of a company or a professional through the payment of a monthly fee. This contract has a variable duration but normally starts from a minimum of three years and is renewable. It applies to various types of capital goods, including computer equipment necessary for work activities: we are therefore mainly talking about fixed and portable computers, monitors, keyboards and mouse, smartphones and tablets.

The broader global machinery leasing market is expected to grow from $316.22 billion in 2020 to $342.66 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4%, including in its components leases and rent contracts for computer equipment.

In Italy, revenues coming from the rental and leasing of office machinery including computer equipment represented 9.5% of the total revenues for rental and leasing activities in 2018 [Istat]. Moreover, it is projected that the revenue of rental and leasing of office machinery and equipment (including computers) in this country will be growing at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2020 and 2024.

The main driver for the demand of these contracts is the life cycle of electronic products, especially IT products, which is getting shorter and shorter. Obsolescence is indeed becoming a priority issue: the need to have high-performance machines that support the latest software or technology available is critical in many contexts. Moreover, the increased attention that Italian consumers are paying to sustainability issues is also a key aspect to consider for this market as operational rental rationalizes the processes of life cycle and scrapping of machines. 

Overall, the Italian market for leases and rentals of IT and computer equipment seems to be in great shape and pointing towards increasing growth. The COVID-19 crisis has indeed fostered a greater attention on the part of companies on their spending thus representing an interesting opportunity for this market which aims primarily at allowing companies to not bear the entire cost of the initial purchase of computer and IT equipment.
