BMI View:

Egypt's IT market is forecast to increase to US$1.5bn in 2012, up by around 7%, with our projection remaining unchanged from Q112. Consumer and business IT spending is projected to report similar growth in 2012, despite continued uncertainty following the political events of 2011. Over BMI's five-year forecast period, Egypt will benefit from youthful demographics and improving information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure. However, there are a number of market constraints,
including a sub-optimal distribution network outside Cairo.

Computer hardware sales: US$956mnn in 2011 to US$1.0bn in 2012, +13% in US dollar terms.
