BMI View: Egypt's economy does not rely on commodities and as such was one of the stronger performing emerging markets for IT spending in 2015, but with the economically important tourism industry facing a loss of confidence and local currency depreciation against the US dollar in 2016, we expect a deceleration in spending growth. The outlook is nonetheless still positive for medium-term performance, and we envisage IT spending will increase at a CAGR of 11.5% over 2016-2020. Rising household incomes trends with positive demographic trends, both in the context of low device penetration rates - alongside the modernisation momentum in the enterprise market underpin our positive view of growth potential in Egyptian IT spending.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments
  • Computer hardware sales will increase from EGP9.0bn in 2016 to EGP12.6bn in 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9%. Educational procurement, and retail spending as incomes rise, will drive growth as vendors target significant number of first-time buyers as reflected in low PC penetration rates.
  • Software sales are forecast to grow from EGP3.4bn in 2016 to EGP5.6bn in 2020, a CAGR of 13.8%. Software market is low-value in Egypt, but modernization pressures will drive investment by both large enterprises and SMEs over the medium term.
  • IT services sales are predicted to rise from EGP4.9bn in 2016 to EGP8.4bn in 2020, a CAGR of 14.6% in local currency terms. There is potential to target both rising public and private sector demand for cloud services, while the growth of the outsourcing industry is a specific area vendors can target.
