Subject. This article considers information and communication technologies as means of production necessary for the smooth functioning of economic entities.
Objectives. The article aims to analyze the changes in sales trend data for importers and manufacturers of components necessary for the development of information and communication infrastructure.
Methods. For the study, we used regression equations based on panel data by period and sales volume.
Results. The article finds that Russian companies that produce components necessary for the development of information and communication infrastructure, and companies importing similar products, operate on unequal terms concerning the formation of production costs and profitability indicators.
Conclusions. The article concludes that a stagewise increase in safeguard customs duties for foreign companies producing components necessary for the development of information and communication technologies by at least fifty percent is quite expedient.

Keywords: digitalization, profitability, information and communication infrastructure, import
