  • Saudi Arabia Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    BMI View: A government policy to reduce Saudi Arabia's reliance on foreign workers is having a negative impact on the sales of mobile handsets in the kingdom, with local retailers reporting that their sales have nearly halved as a result. Saudi Arabia's high mobile penetration rate has been largely boosted by the presence of a large number of foreign workers, many of whom were not included in official population statistics. BMI sees the government's move having a negative impact on mobile device......

    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 87
    BMI View: Clear government support for IT in Saudi Arabia will ensure that it remains the biggest IT market in the Gulf region. While clearly defined ICT policies, helped by the country's relative political stability, aim to increase the sector's contribution to overall economic growth, high income levels in Saudi Arabia reduce consumers' appetite for counterfeit products, with well-developed formal distribution channels making it easier for vendors to reach customers. We note, however, that the......

The latest data show that this trend is ending and we expect operators to focus their efforts on building revenues from existing subscribers.

    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 70
    BMI View: The South Korean consumer electronics is mature, meaning growth rates will be below those of emerging markets. We expect the market will remain in positive growth territory over the medium term but growth will be slow, with a forecast CAGR of 3% 2014-2018 to US$18.7bn in 2018. In the short term, high household debt levels will be a constraint on consumer spending and high penetration rates mean there are limited first-time buyer opportunities. However, consumer appetite for innovative ......

    BMI View: We have added two new markets to the Caribbean Telecoms report in Q2 2014, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda. The inclusion of these two allows us to look at the region from a different angle, as both are among the most developed, supported by high GDP per capita, high proportion of postpaid subscribers and strong demand for 3G services. We expect both the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to become the outperformers in the region in terms of mobile data penetration, as centres for financial off......
