BMI View: We downgraded the outlook for 2015 in our Q415 report update to reflect the drag on demandcoming from a weak Kuwait economic outlook due to the prolonged global oil price slump, a factor thatwas weighing in on consumer confidence Nevertheless, we believe the market will return to positive growthin 2016 as population grows and the economy stabilises in 2016 and beyond, over the course of our forecastperiod Opportunities will still remain limited compared to emerging markets due to the high penetration ofsmartphones and tablets, which means there remains only a small pool of first time buyers for vendors totarget Nevertheless, Kuwait has one of the highest GDP per capita levels in the world and consumers havedemonstrated their preference for luxury items and fashionable brands such as Apple We expect this trendto continue over the next four years, ensuring Kuwait's consumer electronics market remains highlylucrative in per capita terms
