BMI View: The UAE IT market contracted in 2015 as a downturn in hardware spending dragged down the overall market.

We envisage a return to growth in 2016 and the growth rate to remain subdued but stable over the medium term.

Our forecast envisages a CAGR of 3.6% over 2015-2019 to AED19.2bn in 2019.

The hardware market will be challenging as a result of market maturity and economic uncertainty, but we have a brighter outlook for software and services as enterprise and government modernisation initiatives continue.

The areas of strongest growth will be cloud services and IoT solutions adoptions, with the UAE a regional leader for both.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments
  • Computer Hardware Sales: AED7.7bn in 2016 to AED7.6bn in 2019. A combination of a saturated PC market, price erosion and an uncertain economic outlook will make hardware the underperforming segment.
  • Software Sales: AED3.5bn in 2016 to AED4.1bn in 2019. Software-as-a-service provision will continue to deepen the enterprise application market, while we also have a bright outlook for cybersecurity spending growth.
  • IT Services Sales: AED6.0bn in 2016 to AED7.5bn in 2019. Economic uncertainty will strengthen the search for cost efficiencies, benefiting outsourcing, managed services and cloud computing - and the UAE is also a leading market for Internet of Things (IoT) adoption.
