BMI View: Qatar's IT market has the strongest outlook of the high income Middle East countries throughout the medium term. We forecast total IT spending will increase at a CAGR of 6.9% throughout 2016-2020 to a value of QAR5.2bn in 2020. The hardware market is highly lucrative and we expect this to remain the case, but volume growth potential is diminished by the fact the PC market is saturated, meaning vendors will rely on replacement sales. As such, software and services will be the main growth engine for the IT market. In this segment, major government led investments in infrastructure, and economic diversification and modernization are expected to create major new opportunities for IT vendors.
