Egypt Information Technology Report Q4 2014 - New Report Available

New Computer Technology research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research

[USPRwire, Fri Nov 07 2014] We have a positive medium - term outlook for the development of Egypt's IT market, but in the short term growth will continue to be held back by Egypt's fragile politi cal and economic environment . Additionally , the impending reduction of financial support to Egypt from Gulf states will further weigh on growth over the short term. However, over the medium term growth will be driven by trends such as the develop ment of Egypt as a hub between the Middle East and Africa , the growth of the outsourcing industry and cloud computing adoption . Our generally positive outlook is also underpinned by a low penetration of PCs and IT services , which BMI expects vendors to capitalise on as private consumption growth gradually gains momentum over the five years to 2018.
