Kuwait In 2005, total spending on software leapt to US$88mn, up from US$70mn the previous year. As one of the more mature markets in the region, software enjoys a higher share of Kuwait IT spending than in many other countries. Government will continue to be a major source of spending in the forecast period, with an increasingly ITsavvy government and the recent boost in oil wealth encouraging banks to support a new wave of infrastructure investment, we expects the total size of the Kuwaiti IT market to increase from US$338mn in 2005 to around US$830mn in 2010. Kuwait IT services market is expected to be worth around US$118mn in 2006, with the evidence suggesting strong growth in the years to come. Market CAGR is forecast at 21% for 2005 - 2010. Support and maintenance currently account for slightly more than one-third of total IT services spend. Kuwait IT Sector SWOT Strengths • • Kuwait boasts a relatively high PC penetration One of the most advanced states in Gulf region, with high income due to oil revenues Liberal market access policies with low tariffs Small domestic market Relative lack of liberalization in key sectors such as telecoms. Economic boost due to high oil prices, encouraging new wave of hardware spending Government informatisation and e-government drives Increasing expenditure currently by Kuwait corporate sector Kuwait stands to benefit as logistics point for emerging Iraq market Regional instability, and renewed concerns about terrorism Slowdown in US or global economy

UAE BMI estimates that the UAE's software spending will boom from US$236mn in 2005 to US$471mn in 2010. The central geographic areas for the software industry are Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah, with global software companies drawn to the UAE’s free trade zones for tax-free, relatively unhindered competition. Outside of the free trade zones, however, the software market is fairly modest. The market will have a CAGR of 15% in 2005-2010. UAE IT Sector SWOT Strengths • • • Regional hub, at crossroads of Asia and the Middle East serving a potential market of almost 2bn people. One of the highest GDP per capita in the world, due to oil wealth. Excellent telecommunications and information technology infrastructure Good market access, with no significant trade barriers to the presence of foreign competitors. Government support, for example with Dubai Internet City project, and other free trade zones. Large expatriate business community helps drive sector development The cost of internet access is still very high. Price sensitive market, due to intense competition Outsourcing, with scheduled launch of Dubai Outsourcing Zone in 2006 CRM, and storage and security products E-learning market, as well as tourism and travel sector

Lebanon The software market is expected to grow significantly with the implementation of large government and projects, despite the continuing problem with piracy. BMI predicts a value of US$37mn in 2006, and a 2005-2010 CAGR of 11%. The software industry has received a boost recent years through the return of some of Lebanon’s own software companies, which had been operating out of Europe and the US, but are now moving substantial parts of their business back to Beirut. This is despite the fact that connecting to the internet can be hundreds of times more expensive due to the high costs of telecoms. The domestic software industry is highly export focused, with 1/3 of firms, according to a recent survey, getting 75% of all receipts from regional and Western markets. Leading Lebanese software companies tend to have a focus on banking, retail, education and trade. Some founding members of the national software association include: BML Istisharat. Lebanon IT Sector SWOT Strengths • • • Weaknesses • • Opportunities • • Threats • Retail, education, distribution and especially banking sectors fastest growing during forecast period. Economic reform and privatisation, attracting more FDI. Going into 2005 large companies and government departments should be looking to upgrade and replace existing PCs. Lack of overall government plan for ICT sector. High telecommunications costs, lack of high speed internet connections. IT literate, cosmopolitan and linguistically skilled workforce a draw for global vendors. Largest Levant market, well positioned for regional hub status. Market far from saturated, and one of fastest growing in Middle East.

Political instability Lack of political will to develop a national ICT strategy or tackle high levels of piracy. Source: BMI report Q2 2006

Saudi Arabia BMI predicts a software market value of US$460mn in 2006, up from US$441mn in 2005. With the evolution of the Saudi IT market, a stronger vendor focus on software spending is now being seen, especially as higher-than-expected oil revenues are fuelling spending on new systems. The domestic software market is therefore expected to grow significantly, driven by an increased focus by Saudi enterprises on more sophisticated solutions that still offer value for money. The CAGR for software revenues is expected to be in the region of 11%. The Saudi IT services market is expected to reach US$1bn in 2006, up from US$719mn in 2005. Support and maintenance accounted for more than 1/3 (US$252mn) of the 2005 figure. Growth is expected to be at a CAGR of 12% for the 2005-2010 period. Saudi Arabia IT Sector SWOT Largest regional IT market, with spending of US$2.3bn in 2005 • Maturing market, with growing demand of more sophisticated IT services including outsourcing. • Absence of competition in fixed line Weaknesses telecommunications is a constraint on the business environment, especially because it retards the growth of the internet. • Political inertia is an inhibitor of economic liberalisation and reform that would unleash IT Opportunities spending. • Strong economic growth and the high price of oil is fuelling spending in the non-oil private sector economy, as well as public sector organisations and enterprises. • The CITC ‘Home Computing Initiative’ will make it easier for up to 1mn Saudi families to own a PC. • Increasing focus on software spending. According to a recent survey of 160 companies, over 75% of manufacturing, services and trading companies in Threats Saudi Arabia are considering new deployments or upgrades of ERP solutions. • Vested interests will continue to block economic reforms and initiatives in key areas. • Current high oil prices will further delay drive to develop non-oil private economy.

The six-company Saudi display is located at the BAE Systems' pavilion at the event that ends tomorrow. Companies taking part are Al-Salam Aircraft Company, Aircraft Accessories and Components Company, Advanced Engineering Company, Saudi Development and Training and International Systems Engineering, aside from the Saudi operations of BAE Systems. "The Saudi stand demonstrates the achievements of organizations in the Kingdom in taking steps toward self-sufficiency in manufacturing, maintenance and repair of civil, military and training aircraft," Damian Turner, executive director BAE Systems in Saudi Arabia, said. "We think quite a few heads will be turned," he said. The progress made by Saudi Arabia in the industrial sector has gone largely unheralded in the international marketplace. In addition to the ability to carry out repair and maintenance of operational and training aircraft, organizations in the Kingdom are also taking steps toward original component design and manufacture and aircraft assembly. "Clearly, there is still a long way to go before the country achieves all its aims, but the fact that most of the basic infrastructure for developing self-sufficiency is in place may surprise some commentators," he added.
