BMI View: The growth outlook for Kuwait's IT market is weak, with the slowdown in private consumptionin a saturated retail PC market the main factor in a hardware centric IT market. We forecast total ITspending will increase at a CAGR of 1.4% over 2016-2020, with software and services expected tooutperform. Although the hardware segment has the weakest outlook, and is expected to contract slightlyover the medium term, it will nonetheless remain highly lucrative due to the large premium segment.Meanwhile, software and services have a brighter outlook as the low oil price acts as a catalyst fordiversification and investments in cost-saving and flexibility-enhancing IT solutions.
