The digital economy is on pace to reach US$ 4.2 trillion in the G20 states by 2016, which represents more than 5% GDP; in some countries, the digital economy will exceed 10% of GDP. It would rank as one of the world's top five economies, behind only the United States, China, Japan and India, and ahead of Germany.
