Oman Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2016

BMI View: Oman's consumer electronics market has a weak outlook over the medium term as a result of

approaching saturation in key device categories, especially smartphones, against a backdrop of economic

uncertainty due to oil prices and the depletion of demographics as a growth driver. The market should

continue to be lucrative in per capita terms on the basis of replacement spending, but we caution that the

broad economic and demographic support that drove growth in the past five years will soften considerably

over the forecast period. There is also downside should oil prices take another move lower and result in a

forced rial devaluation, which we believe means Oman is the GCC market most vulnerable to oil market

trends. Our core scenario is however for gradual economic recovery, and we expect this to underpin a

device spending CAGR of 2.6% over 2016-2020.

Latest Updates And Industry Developments

? Computer Hardware Sales: USD266mn in 2016 to USD280mn in 2020, at a compound annual growth

rate (CAGR) of 1.2%. Outlook lowered in Q416 as a result of cannibalisation of tablet spending by

smartphones, but still growth potential in hybrid notebooks and all-in-one desktops.

? AV Sales: USD174mn in 2016 to USD189mn in 2020, at a CAGR of 2.0%. Flat-panel saturation and

digital camera cannibalisation resulted in four consecutive annual declines in spending, but we envisage a

modest return to growth as smart and Ultra HD sets trigger high-value upgrades.

? Handset Sales: USD673mn in 2016 to USD764mn in 2020, at a CAGR of 3.2%. Approaching

smartphone saturation means the boom is over in Oman, and there is downside to prices if the economy is

weaker than expected.

    BMI View: Bahrain has proved to be a lucrative consumer electronics device market for vendors, however the result of high incomes and demand for the latest products is that by 2016 most product categories are saturated - and so growth potential is limited. Over the medium term we expect to see a market where volume and value growth is modest, with a small boost from an expanding working age population, but also downside from form factor innovation that could see smartphon......

    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: Economic and political crisis in Brazil has hit consumer electronics spending hard, with steep declines in 2015 and 2016. The outlook is subdued as a result of a sluggish economic recovery that means a bounce back in device spending is unlikely, with the purchasing power forecast to be well below the 2013-2014 peak, even by 2020. Nonetheless, the device market is forecast to return to growth from 2017 as the economic environment at least becomes less hostile, an......

    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    BMI View: After a double-digit contraction in 2015 when kuna depreciation hit consumer electronics spending in Croatia, we forecast a return to growth from 2016 and a CAGR of 2.9% for 2016-2020. A stronger economic environment including GDP growth and kuna appreciation will be a welcome boost for vendors after recession during 2009-2014 and then the blow to affordability from depreciation in 2015. This will allow vendors to tap remaining first-time buyer opportunities as ......

    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: Kuwait is a high value consumer electronics market in per capita terms, and there was strong growth fuelled by first-time sales of smartphones, tablets and flat-panel TV sets from the global financial crisis until 2014. The growth potential of the market is however much reduced by 2016 as a result of saturation in most device categories, as well as the threat of cannibalisation of distinct devices, such as tablets and digital cameras, by smartphones. Further, th......

    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: Vietnam's consumer electronics market has huge potential for growth as incomes rise. We have a positive outlook for broad based economic growth that should sustain increases in device spending over the medium term as vendors will be able to tap into existing low device penetration rates. There is however, some uncertainty around the PC market, where sales dived in H116, which has increased concerns that the proliferation of smartphone ownership could see consume......

    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: The Colombian consumer electronics devices market is served primarily through imported devices, and as such the exchange rate has a significant impact on domestic spending trends through shifts in the affordability of devices. This was evident in 2015 when sharp depreciation resulted in a steep decline in device spending across all three segments, and with a weaker peso-USD outlook we moderated our forecast for 2016-2020 in the Q416 update, now envisaging a CAGR......
  • Iran Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2016

    BMI View: We expect that the Iranian consumer electronics market will move into a stronger era of growth from 2017 as a result of the easing of sanctions that will contribute to stronger economic performance and increase competition as international vendors re-enter the market. We forecast that this shift will support a device spending CAGR of 4.3% over 2016-2020, but caution that downside risk is still significant due to the potential for further oil price declines. Ther......
