BMI View: The IT markets in Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria all contracted sharply in 2014 and 2015 as a

depression in the commodities complex hurt economic performance and resulted in steep currency

depreciation against the US dollar that eroded already weak purchasing power. This was due to a reevaluation

of previous optimism regarding their economic growth trajectory and IT markets, as a lack of

structural and institutional strength was laid bare. The fortunes of the three markets are however not tied

that closely, with Ghana and Nigeria being more susceptible to further negative shocks in the short-term if

the commodities markets take another turn downwards. However, under our core scenario we envisage

improved performance over the medium term for all three markets, but caution that there is a long way to

go before the rapid growth of IT spending observed in the higher income emerging markets is replicated in

Sub-Saharan Africa.

Latest Updates & Developments

- Ghana Total IT Market Sales: GHS590mn in 2016 to GHS1.1bn in 2020, a compound annual growth

rate (CAGR) of 16.7% in local currency terms. The smallest market in our Africa IT coverage, Ghana's

oil growth driver presents downside, but we have a stronger medium-term economic outlook should

performance improve.

- Kenya Total IT Market Sales: KES47.3bn in 2016 to KES80.7bn in 2020, a CAGR of 14.3% in local

currency terms. Less exposed to commodities, and with the most developed IT market in this report, we

believe Kenya has the strongest foundation for IT market development through the positive impact of

broader based growth on consumer spending and a more diverse private sector that will see higher

investment than in oil dependent markets.

- Nigeria Total IT Market Sales: NGN173.4bn in 2016 to NGN306.6bn in 2020, a CAGR of 15.3% in

local currency terms. Nigeria is the largest market in the region, and has considerable long-term potential,

but the economic situation in 2016 has major downside that could delay a return to growth for IT

spending until later in the forecast period.
