According to a report by Business Monitor International (BMI), Oman's IT market is forecast to be worth $410m this year, up 6.5% from an estimated $385m in 2012, Muscat Daily has reported. The government is expected to be a significant driver of IT spending over the next five years. Computer hardware sales in the sultanate are expected to reach $220m in 2013, up 5% from $209m last year, due to macroeconomic factors and the release of Windows 8, according to the report. Software sales are seen to rise 7% in 2013 to $80m on steady demand for enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions among SMEs and corporates, while IT service sales are expected to witness an 8% growth this year to $110m, BMI said.
