Country Highlights

Estonia and Its IT Boom

The IT sector plays a vital role in Estonia’s economy, generating billions in revenue each year and employing a significant portion of the country’s workforce. As one of the most digitally advanced nations in Europe, Estonia has transformed into a hub for technology and innovation.

Estonia’s IT industry registered a turnover of €3.68 billion in 2020 according to official statistics. The sector contributes nearly 7% to the country’s overall GDP and employs close to 5% of the total labor force. IT outsourcing dominates the market, with the subsector projected to reach a value of $83.63 million by 2023.

Estonia has a long history of being at the forefront of digital transformation in Europe. In the late 1990s, the government launched an ambitious e-Governance program to bring public services online. This helped drive internet usage among the population and positioned Estonia as a pioneer in digital public administration.

Today, Estonian companies are global leaders in developing industry 4.0 and automation solutions. They provide applications across various economic sectors, including automotive supply chains, energy, mechanical engineering, retail/logistics, pharmacy, and chemistry. Estonia is also known for its thriving startup scene, with over 400 tech startups based in the capital city of Tallinn alone.

Estonia’s strong IT sector is underpinned by a highly skilled workforce. The country places strong emphasis on STEM education from an early age. University programs in computer science, engineering, and other tech fields churn out thousands of graduates each year ready to join the IT industry. The labor pool is further bolstered by Estonia’s e-Residency program, which grants remote residency to digital entrepreneurs worldwide.

Going forward, Estonia is focused on promoting innovation and digital transformation across all economic activities. The government aims to increase R&D spending, commercialize university research, and attract more foreign tech investment. If current growth trends continue, Estonia’s IT industry is well-positioned to further strengthen the country’s position as a leading digital economy in Europe.
