BMI View: The steep decline in the oil price in 2014 and 2015, and continued uncertainty about themedium-term trajectory, weighs on Saudi Arabia's economy and the IT market through weaker consumerand enterprise sentiment. There is potential upside from the government's Vision 2030 initiative to diversifythe economy, which includes targets for developing the ICT sector, but we caution that a degree ofscepticism is warranted. This is due to the historical failure of many similar attempts at diversification bycommodity economies. As a result, we have a subdued growth outlook, but there is nonetheless a modestrecovery envisaged from the lows of 2015 in our core scenario. We forecast a CAGR of 3.0% for ITspending throughout the 2016-2020 period.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- Computer Hardware Sales: SAR18.3bn in 2016 to SAR17.9bn in 2020. Saturation of the retail PCmarket and a low-value enterprise mix limit the potential of the computer hardware segment, which willbe exacerbated by domestic economic weaknesses.

- Software Sales: SAR8.6bn in 2016 to SAR10.3bn in 2020. Successful economic diversification and/or arecovery in the oil price could raise the software market spending outlook, but even in our core scenario,we expect growth to outperform the hardware segment.

- IT Services Sales: SAR11.9bn in 2016 to SAR15.5bn in 2020. Economic uncertainty has some upsidefor services where solutions offering cost savings and flexibility to enterprises such as outsourcing, cloudcomputing and smart services will prove attractive, and potentially have a role in the modernisation ofSaudi Arabia's inefficient public sector.
