The decline in the oil price has dampened the economic outlook for Bahrain since the last ITmarket update, reflected in our downward revision of our forecast to a CAGR of 4.9% 2016-2019 to a totalvalue of BHD154mn. The impact will not however be far reaching under our core scenario, with Bahrain'sstatus as a lucrative retail hardware market largely unaffected, and we maintain our view that premiumdevice spending will provide high margin unit growth opportunities over the medium term. Meanwhile, interms of enterprise spending growing demand from the financial services and telecommunications verticals,particularly for cloud computing and advanced solutions will offset the cutbacks in the oil and gas sector.There is however heightened downside risk in the 2016 update, primarily through the potential for publicsector IT spending cuts on modernisation initiatives in services such as healthcare, but this is not our corescenario.Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- Computer Hardware Sales: BHD62mn in 2016 to BHD67mn in 2019, equal to a CAGR of 2.6%. Thematurity of the market means growth opportunities are limited, but a strong household income profilereflects the lucrative nature of the market in per capita terms, and premium PC replacement spending willbe a key driver over the medium term. .

- Software Sales: BHD23mn in 2016 to BHD29mn in 2019, equal to a CAGR of 6.7%. We expectapplication spending by the public and private sector to grow through modernisation initiatives over themedium term, while cyber security solutions are expected to outperform due to heightened regional risks.
