Kuwait has a large and lucrative hardware market where retail spending on PCs has beenstrong over the past decade, but, as a result of a weaker economic outlook and PC market saturation,demand is expected to be flat over the medium term. The hardware segment will still be lucrative forvendors, but in terms of growth it is software and services that will take centre stage as there is upside fromthe lower oil price acting as a catalyst for diversification and investments in cost-saving and flexibilityenhancingIT solutions. We forecast total IT spending will increase at a CAGR of 2.5% over 2016-2020 toKWD359.1mn in 2020.
