BMI forecasts 7% growth for the Kuwaiti consumer electronics market in 2012, with spending on devices
such as smartphones and tablets expected to benefit from a positive economic context. This surge in
spending is almost wholly government-driven, with household incomes having been boosted by a series
of public sector wage hikes and increased social benefits. There are signs that credit growth in the
domestic banking sector - which has been anaemic for the best part of two years - is beginning to pick
up. Moreover, the real estate market is also starting to recover, and was up by 8.4% in the first seven
months of 2012. Sales will also be boosted by growing popularity of flat-screen TV sets, Android
smartphones, notebook computers and tablets, and other premium products, as well as ongoing expansion
of the electronics retail sector.
Headline Expenditure Projections
?? Computer hardware sales: US$362mn in 2011 to US$394mn in 2012, +9% in US dollar terms.
Forecast in US dollar terms upwardly revised due to macroeconomic factors, following stronger
than expected growth in 2011.
?? AV sales: US$454mn in 2012 to US$484mn in 2013, +7% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US
dollar terms upwardly revised due to analyst modification, and product innovation will drive
continued growth in the flat-screen TV set category.
?? Handset sales: US$196mn in 2011 to US$218mn in 2012, +11% in US dollar terms. Forecast in
US dollar terms unchanged but operator promotions are driving strong growth in the smartphone
market.
Risk/Reward Rating:
Kuwait's score was 58.1 out of 100. Kuwait ranked fourth in the MEA region in our latest RRR table,
behind the UAE, but ahead of regional peers such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Key Trends & Developments
?? Flat-screen TV sets will be the main driver of AV category sales growth over the forecast period
as consumers upgrade and trade their old models for digital. Product innovation will also boost
sales, with a focus on features such as 3D, improved display quality and larger, wider screens, as
well as design and wireless capabilities.
?? In the mobile devices sector, the upgrade of network infrastructure to support new data services
will help to drive demand for 3G phones and smartphones. Kuwaiti consumers have an
increasing demand for easy access to emails and other data services in Kuwait and when they are
travelling. Other drivers of smartphone sales include more competitive data tariffs from the main
operators.
?? The popularity of multimedia portable computers with wireless connectivity will continue to
provide opportunities. Vendors will look to new form factors such as tablets and the heavily
hyped ultrabooks, which are relatively high in price, but could provide a new boost to the PC
market in 2013.

    BMI View: Macroeconomic conditions will continue to weigh on the Australian consumer electronics market in 2016, with another year of contraction forecast in US dollar terms. The outlook is however brighter than 2015 and we envisage a return to growth in local currency terms in 2016 as product trends become more supportive. The market is expected to continue to strengthen over the medium term, albeit with only slow and stable growth due to the maturity of the market and m......
  • Brazil Consumer Electronics Report Q3 2016
    Published: 22-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 68
    BMI View: Brazil's large electronics industry provided little insulation to the market in 2015, as a reliance on imported components and a sharp deterioration in household purchasing power resulted in a sharp contraction in spending on consumer electronics devices. We expect another year of contraction in 2016 as the economic and political crisis continues to evolve in Brazil, but the decline should not be as steep as in 2015. Conditions are expected to be less hostile fr......
  • Croatia Consumer Electronics Report Q3 2016
    Published: 22-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: The outlook for 2016 is mixed, with the Croatian economy still sluggish, but over the medium term we expect a combination of faster growth and kuna appreciation to put consumer electronics device spending growth on a faster trajectory. Purchasing power gains for Croatian households, particularly for the middle class, should create opportunities for vendors through replacement and upgrade spending, with an added boost from deferred purchases in recent years in di......
  • Egypt Consumer Electronics Report Q3 2016
    Published: 22-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 64
    BMI View: Rising incomes, positive demographic trends and stronger economic growth from 2017 will support fast growth in consumer electronics device spending in Egypt as vendors tap into the opportunity presented by relatively low device penetration rates. We forecast total device spending will increase at a CAGR of 5.9% over 2016-2020 to reach USD5.0bn in 2020. Another factor supporting our positive outlook is the fact that the global boom in smartphones and tablets in e......
  • Germany Consumer Electronics Report Q3 2016
    Published: 22-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: US dollar appreciation hit consumer electronics spending in Germany in 2015, but we envisage a return to growth over the medium term to be underpinned by euro stabilisation and then appreciation. A more supportive economic environment will allow vendors to tap into purchasing power gains for German households, which should see upgrade and replacement spending unlocked and help to counterbalance the limitations of a relatively frugal consumer culture. There are n......
  • Hong Kong Consumer Electronics Report Q3 2016
    Published: 22-Jun-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    BMI View: Hong Kong is a high-value consumer electronics market, particularly for smaller products such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks where the spending of visitors boosts the market. The maturity of the domestic market, in which most product categories have reached saturation, and an uncertain spending outlook for visitors, particularly from the mainland, combine to produce our modest growth forecast for consumer electronics device spending over the medium term. ......
  • Japan Consumer Electronics Report Q3 2016

    BMI View: Japan is both a major producer of consumer electronics devices and components, and a large market for device sales, but in both cases it shows signs of weakness. The Japanese electronics industry has declined in the past decade in the face of low-cost competition and a changing product landscape, and there is further downside over the medium term. Meanwhile, a saturated domestic market, and unfavourable demographics, are only partially offset by our forecast for......
