BMI View: Medium-term growth opportunities were already relatively limited in Oman due to the maturity of the market, with high penetration of devices in the PC, AV and handset segments. Heightened economic uncertainty in the face of a decline in the oil price has exacerbated this feature of the market through deferred purchases, particularly in the PC and AV segments. In 2016, we expect growth in Omani consumer electronics spending to be subdued but there is scope for stronger performance over the medium term as the economic environment becomes more supportive, though we caution that significant downside risks do exist. There will however be underlying demand drivers including robust population growth, the declining average selling prices of various devices and the introduction of devices with new features such as wearables.

Latest Updates And Industry Developments
  • Computer Hardware Sales: USD257mn in 2016 to USD282mn in 2019, at a CAGR of 3.2%. Tablet market should return to growth from 2017 after contraction followed the initial boom - while upgrade demand for hybrid notebooks will also support market expansion.
  • AV Sales: USD175mn in 2016 to USD187mn in 2019, at a CAGR of 1.5%. AV segment expected to continue to underperform but performance will be much improved from 2015-2016 when TV set market saturation and digital camera volume cannibalisation resulted in contraction in spending.
  • Handset Sales: USD737mn in 2016 to USD759mn in 2019, at a CAGR of 1.7%. The handset market was the most dynamic segment during the smartphone boom, but a combination of saturation and price erosion is expected to see the market move to a much slower growth trajectory over the medium term.
