BMI View:
A combination of market saturation and economic uncertainty means the growth prospects for consumer electronics device spending growth in Bahrain are limited over 2016-2020. It will however continue to be a lucrative market for vendors with high incomes reflected in premium device bias, high prices and wide margins. Our forecast envisages growth in USD50,000+ annual income households will support some growth at the premium end of the market, but overall saturation in most device categories mean there is little low-hanging fruit for vendors. Under our core scenario, we envisage total device spending will grow at a CAGR of 1.5% over 2016-2020, but we caution that risks are weighted to the downside, with a sustained low in the oil price the most significant risk, but political unrest could also derail our core scenario.


Latest Updates & Industry Developments
- Computer Sales: The market will increase from USD150mn in 2016 to USD165mn in 2019, at a CAGR of 2.5%. An ageing desktop and notebook stock and deferred purchases from 2015 and 2016 are behind our expectation that computer sales will register the strongest growth once economic conditions become more supportive.
- AV Sales: The market will increase from USD125mn in 2016 to USD130mn in 2019, at a CAGR of 1.0%. Smart and Ultra-HD TV set upgrades will put the market on a stronger trajectory compared to recent years, but digital camera volumes will not recover after cannibalisation by smartphone proliferation.
- Handset Sales: We forecast a growth from USD267mn in 2016 to USD279mn in 2019, at a CAGR of 1.1%. Saturated smartphone market means growth will be far below the rates in the initial boom phase, but premium bias and short replacement cycles will nonetheless mean vendors can benefit.
