    BMI View: We forecast IT spending will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6% between 2014 and 2018, with expansion underpinned by rising incomes, enterprise modernisation and the policy environment put in place by the government. We also highlight larger opportunities in the retail market where penetration of devices and services remains below the level in neighbouring markets, which vendors will be able to tap as incomes rise. The government is also a significant factor underpin......

    BMI View: The Central Asia region has seen a number of 4G LTE launches since April 2014, including NurTelecom in Kyrgyzstan, Altyn Asyr in Turkmenistan and Tcell in Tajikistan. MPs in Kazakhstan have also submitted a recommendation that LTE licences should be issued to rival companies in the market to sole licensee Altel, In order to encourage competition. We generally expect growth for this more expensive service and technology will be slow in the region, given low purchasing power and low upta......

    BMI View: We expect to see growth in Russian Consumer Electronics driven by demand for digital lifestyle products such as smartphones, smart TVs and tablets/ultra-thin notebooks. Penetration of these devices still remains low by developed market standards but with local players such as YotaDevices, Explay and FLY beginning to make an impact in the market, we expect strong uptake to continue.

    BMI View: Despite the relative small size of the individual Caribbean markets, they are drawing a lot of interest from third parties, with a number of opportunities arising in the Bahamas and Trinidad & Tobago for additional players. As with the sale of Orange Dominicana in November 2013, these markets are attracting interest from a number of players, despite the existence of incumbent operators and highly penetrated mobile markets. This is likely because growth in mobile broadband is co......

Strong private consumption levels, plus access to the latest technologies offer promise in the market, with local consumers keen to get the latest products.

    BMI View: Chad is one of Africa's most challenging markets for telecommunications investment and development. The wireline sector is a monopoly of the state-owned utility and lacks the resources needed to develop advanced services. The broadband market is served by three alternative players, but these are very small and seemingly target a small group of large enterprises rather than average consumers. The mobile sector, by contrast, is well developed but is led by two major players engaged in a ......

As a result, we are confident that IT spending will continue to increase over our forecast period, projected to come in at KWD296mn in 2014. We expect the......
