"Qatar Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2015" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Apr 14 2015

Our positive outlook for Qatar's consumer electronics market is underpinned by high consumer spending power, rapid population growth from the influx of migrant workers, and the government's continued commitment to investment in the ICT sector, as part of its goal to reduce the country's dependence on hydrocarbons. Qatar's wealthy consumers will drive value growth in the consumer electronics market through take-up of high-end smartphones, tablets and TVs. Mobile operators Ooredoo and Vodafone will contribute to this trend, as they encourage subscribers to migrate to 4G mobile services and increasingly target consumers with multi-play service offerings, compatible with multiple device ownership. Meanwhile, the government's expansionary policies have resulted in a rapidly growing population of migrant workers to support the construction and hospitality sectors. This is in turn driving volume growth in the consumer electronics market, while an expanding tourism sector is boosting demand for AV devices.
