BMI View: We maintain a modestly optimistic outlook for the Saudi IT market over the medium term in ourQ216 quarterly report update. We believe 2016 will witness the final year of the IT market contraction. Thesteep decline in the oil price in 2014 and 2015 has put Saudi Arabia's economy on a lower growthtrajectory and as a result we downgraded our IT market outlook in the Q116 update. We forecast totalspending will grow at a CAGR of 1.9% over 2016-2020 to reach SAR43.7bn in 2020. The hardwaresegment is forecast to underperform over the medium term as a combination of economic uncertainty andmarket maturity sees spending contract, though volume growth is expected to return in the final years of theforecast. The services market is the bright spot in our outlook, with cost efficiency and flexibility generatingsolutions expected to see the strongest demand from local enterprises looking for manoeuvrability in anuncertain economic environment. This is even true for the oil and gas segment, where low prices couldactually prove a catalyst for a new generation of investment in smart services to increase efficiency andensure margin maintenance in a depressed global market.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- Computer Hardware Sales: SAR18.3bn in 2016 to SAR17.9bn in 2020. A weak economic backdropwill combine with market maturity and a dynamic of price erosion to see the hardware segmentunderperform over the medium term.

- Software Sales: SAR8.6bn in 2016 to SAR10.3bn in 2020. While projects face being deferred or scaledback in the oil sector, enterprise software adoption will continue to deepen among small- and mediumsizedenterprises.

- IT Services Sales: SAR11.9bn in 2016 to SAR15.5bn in 2020. Solutions offering cost savings andflexibility to enterprises in an uncertain environment such as outsourcing, cloud computing and smartservices expected to underpin outperformance.
