BMI View:

We project Qatar consumer electronics spending will grow by about 9% in US dollar terms in 2012.with leading indicator data being supportive of our positive outlook. Credit growth grew 24.1%
and 30.3% y-o-y in January and February 2012 respectively, but BMI does expect consumer electronics spending to moderate in 2012, due to a reduction in consumer confidence. An evolving retail landscape will help to stimulate sales, and new technologies, and factors such as increased competition in the mobile communications sector and the roll-out of high-spend broadband services, will also act as drivers Meanwhile, an expected influx of visitors in the run-up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup (3mn tourists arrived when South Africa hosted the event in 2010) should boost spending.

Headline Expenditure Projections:

- Computer Hardware Sales: US$232mn in 2011 to US$253mn in 2012, +9% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar terms unchanged following stronger-than-expected sales growth in 2011.

- AV Sales: US$307mn in 2011 to US$336mn in 2012, +9% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar terms unchanged, with flat-screen TV sets the main growth driver.
