BMI View: We expect the Egyptian IT market to perform well over the medium term to 2019. BMI predictsrelatively strong growth in the IT sector in 2016 due to a generally supportive policy environment and a lowpenetration rate of PCs and IT services. However, the deterioration of the security situation in Egypttowards the end of 2015 is already impacting the country's economy: the central bank may allow theEgyptian pound to fall further into depreciation, which could place additional upward pressure on the priceof electronic imports.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- Computer hardware sales will increase from EGP8.8bn in 2016 to EGP11.6bn in 2019, up by acompound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.8% in local currency terms. A minor downgrade reflectsfaster depreciation of the Egyptian pound against the US dollar, which will be a drag on market growth in2016, but strong demand for low-cost tablets will ensure growth continues overall.

- Software sales are forecast to grow from EGP3.5bn in 2016 to EGP4.9bn in 2019, up by a CAGR of12.0% in local currency terms. Enterprise software spending growth is expected to accelerate as a widerrange of software-as-a-service options become available in Egypt, with small- and medium-sizedenterprises representing a relatively untapped opportunity.
