Israeli high-tech sector faces a challenging 2023

Wednesday, January 4, 2023

Significance

The sector is Israel’s leading industry: a driver of economic growth, a major employer and a key source of export receipts and foreign investment. It also plays an important role in the country’s national security as a source for advanced weaponry and an asset in diplomatic and trade relations.

Impacts

  • The industry downturn may have the positive effect of easing a chronic labour shortage in the short-to-medium term.
  • Start-ups that need to raise capital in 2023 will face a very challenging environment.
  • The tech industry faces a significant obstacle to long-term growth without recruiting more women, Israeli Arabs and ultra-Orthodox Jews.
