Information and Communication Services: growth remains positive

Catherine Souquet, division Services, Insee

In 2014, output from information and communication services remained dynamic: +2.3% in volume, after +1.7% in 2013. This growth is primarily driven by telecoms and IT activities. Output from other activities has declined, particularly publishing of books and newspapers-magazines and audiovisual media activities. In 2013 the margin rate declined, except in the IT services sector, but investment picked up again (+7.9%).
