As Novac/Bernard Ivezic writes, the extent to which the Croatian capital is the true heart of the Croatian IT industry has now finally been looked more deeply into as a study was conducted into precisely that. As much as four-fifths of the Croatian IT industry is located in the bustling City of Zagreb according to the latest Croatian Chamber of Commerce’s IT study, which will be presented on February the 16th, 2021.

According to the study, which expands over more than 188 pages when compared to the previous such analysis of the Croatian IT industry from 2008 onwards, it is stated that IT companies located in Zagreb back in pre-pandemic in 2019 enjoyed an impressive 21.37 billion kuna in revenue, which is almost 80 percent of total Croatian IT industry revenue.

The Croatian Chamber of Commerce (HGK) and the Croatian IT industry itself has stated that the City of Zagreb is the headquarters of as many as 51 percent of all IT companies operating within the country and that 63 percent of all IT employees work there.

Opposite the City of Zagreb are two counties in which one company represents the entire IT industry there, the frequently overlooked continental areas of Bjelovar-Bilogora and Koprivnica-Krizevci County.

Goran Mrvos, president of the IT Association at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, says that the aforementioned research was done in cooperation with Boris Zitnik from Omnia Consulting and Dalibor Suboticanc from the Research Factory.

”This year’s analysis is supplemented by data on investments in research and development from the years 2008 to 2019 and offers an overview by counties for the total period, and our goal is to provide a good insight into the level of innovation and guidelines for IT industry development by IT company category,” concluded Mrvos.
