​As we approach 2024, the tech industry in Australia is facing a challenging time with the landscape of business being affected by the economic downturn, among other things.

The Australian tech industry is a significant contributor to the country's economy, employing one in 16 Australians and making up 8.5% of the GDP in 2021 alone. However, there are several economic issues affecting the industry right now, including:

  • Shortage of skilled tech professionals: According to TMS Outsource, one of the most pressing issues facing the Australian tech industry is a shortage of skilled tech professionals. This shortage can lead to higher operating costs and a lack of innovation.

  • Competition from global tech giants: Australian tech companies face stiff competition from global tech giants, which can make it difficult for them to compete in the market.

  • Layoffs: Over 85,000 workers in tech have been laid off so far in 2023. While the impact on Australia is likely to be minimal, it could lead to a greater availability of tech talent for Australian businesses as displaced employees from the US, Europe, and the UK may be forced to move.
