We expect Qatar's consumer electronics market will continue to be lucrative for vendors over the medium term, particularly for premium oriented vendors in areas such as flagship smartphones and tablets, hybrid notebooks and Ultra-HD or OLED TV sets. Large disposable incomes and a strong consumption fo recast, combined with a fashion- oriented consumption culture, means replacement cycles will remain short and unit prices high. The first-time buyer opportunity is however depleted across most of the market, meaning the potential for volume growth is limited and vendors will largely be reliant on replacement sale. We forecast total device spending will increase at a CAGR of 3.6% over 2016-2020 to USD1.8bn in 2020.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

Computer Hardware Sales: USD578.72mn in 2016 to USD681.83mn in 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2%. The PC market (including tablets) is saturated in Qatar where diffusion cycles are short, but an ageing desktop and notebook installed base and the traction gained by hybrid notebooks among local consumers creates opportunities for vendors.
AV Sales: USD275.44mn in 2016 to USD324.54mn in 2020, a CAGR of 4.2%. The flat-panel TV market is stagnant in volume terms due to saturation, but UHD and OLED set demand among the large pool of high income households will drive growth - and we believe Qatar could be a leading market for next generation TV set adoption.
Handset Sales: USD734.48mn in 2016 to USD820.25mn in 2020, a CAGR of 2.8%. In 2015 lower cost smartphone availability deepened the market to a larger share of migrant workers, which resulted in an upward revision to the volume outlook, but this upside is countered in the value forecast by the declining average selling price for smartphones.
