BMI View: Growth in 2014 was squeezed by the political instability that has been an undercurrent in Bahrain since the Arab Spring, and we believe it could continue to be a drag on growth in 2015, with downside risk should the situation deteriorate. However, there are positive characteristics that should result in medium term growth in IT market spending. Favourable population dynamics, investments in retail and data network infrastructure, government ICT initiatives and the country's expanding financial hub status are expected to be major drivers of growth in Bahrain's IT market. We also point to significant opportunities in the cyber security market as a result of criminal and state-sponsored threats, of which a range of end-users are becoming more aware. Additionally, the relatively untapped but large SME market offers vendors opportunities to sell cloud services where on-premises deployments were previously considered unfeasible. BMI therefore forecasts the total size of the of Bahrain's IT market to grow by 5.6%
to BHD160mn in 2015.

Headline Expenditure Projections

- Computer Hardware Sales: Estimated at BHD85mn in 2014 and forecast to grow by 3.6% to BHD88mn in 2015. Growth is expected to remain subdued until political instability is resolved, but strong growth prospects for mobile form factors such as tablets and hybrid notebooks remains.
