BMI View:

Medium-term growth opportunities were already relatively limited in Oman due to the maturityof the market, with high penetration of devices in the PC, AV and handset segments. Heightened economicuncertainty in the face of a decline in the oil price has exacerbated this feature of the market throughdeferred purchases, particularly in the PC and AV segments. In 2016, we expect growth in Omani consumerelectronics spending to be subdued but there is scope for stronger performance over the medium term as theeconomic environment becomes more supportive, though we caution that significant downside risks doexist. There will however be underlying demand drivers including robust population growth, the decliningaverage selling prices of various devices and the introduction of devices with new features such aswearables.
