Key Market Drivers, Trends & Challenges:

Key Driver- Strong growth of Islamic banking

  • In 2018, Qatar's financial services sector performed well, experiencing high growth of 18.2% because of Islamic banking, also known as non-interest banking.
  • As of November 2019, Sharia-compliant banking grew over 8.05% with high retail and real estate financing.
  • In addition, investment banks in Qatar increased lending and deposit rates. With such a position of Islamic banking in Qatar, the need for advanced IT solutions to track and maintain banking operations is high.
  • Several banking software vendors in Qatar have realized this opportunity and are offering Sharia-compliant software solutions specifically to Islamic banks.
  • As a result, revenue from banking software is a major contributor to the growth of the IT market in Qatar.

Key Trend- Increased adoption of IT as a service

  • The adoption of IT as a service is increasing in organizations, as they are trying to implement IT solutions to remain competitive in their businesses.
  • Changing business requirements in the global marketplace is compelling organizations to align their IT strategies with their business goals for long-term competitive advantages.
  • IT also provides flexibility to change IT systems according to the requirements of separate business units within organizations.
  • SMEs are implementing IT as a service model to reduce the upfront IT cost and increase business agility. SME requirements are quite different from that of large enterprises, as SMEs have a lower IT budget than large enterprises to implement IT solutions.
  • Flexible IT services in SMEs enable organizations to manage their IT infrastructure with low capital investment.

Key Challenge-Overdependence on the economic condition

  • Businesses in Qatar are highly dependent on the economic condition of the country. From the 2017 Qatar diplomatic crisis, an economic recession or currency fluctuation lead to drastic changes in investment patterns and cost-cutting measures by vendors.
  • Since cost-saving is one of the most important criteria for enterprises, they tend to rely on in-house solutions rather than purchase IT solutions from other vendors.
  • Similarly, consumers often put cost ahead of advanced solutions in the buying criteria and hence may shift to free or pirated versions of the software during economic downturns.
  • Thus, the over-dependence of consumers and businesses on the country's economic condition is a challenge for the vendors and may affect the growth of the market during the forecast period.
