2013 will soon be upon us.

Most of us can see that 2012's four big trends will get bigger next year: mobile, social, cloud, and big data.

Market-research company IDC has gone one further, predicting how these trends will unfold next year—to the tune of billions of dollars.

1. The world will spend a whopping $2.1 trillion on tech in 2013

 

Companies are ready to upgrade to all the latest new tech. And consumers are opening up their wallets for smartphones, tablets and apps.

All told, IT spending will be up almost 6%.

2. Tech will grow insanely fast in emerging countries

 

The need for tech in overseas emerging markets will really kick into gear.

Geographic areas like Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, and the Middle East will spend $730 billion on IT, up almost 9%. One-third of the customers that IT vendors have will come from these areas.

3. 2013 will be a make-it-or-break-it year in mobile for some vendors

When it come to mobile, 2013 will bring us these three things:

Mini tablets with screens less than 8 inches in size will be the rage, accounting for 60% of tablets sold.

The market for smartphones and tablets combined will grow by 20%.

2013 will be a make-or-break year for mobile platforms. Those that don't attract interest from at least 50% of app developers won't survive. Google and Apple are past that threshold. Microsoft now sits at 33%. RIM is at 9%.

4. Big IT companies will feast on smaller cloud players

 

The software-as-a-service phenomenon really grew up in the past 12 months, with big vendors like Oracle and SAP spending billions to buy their way into the market.

IDC thinks we haven't seen anything yet.

"There will be over $25 billion in SaaS acquisitions over the next 20 months, up from $17 billion in the past 20 months," it says.

Some companies are too highly valued to make for easy acquisitions, like the publicly traded Salesforce.com, worth $22 billion, or the fast-growing, still-private Box at $1.2 billion. But a bunch of others could be ripe for deals: Okta, Zenoss, and ServiceMax come to mind.
