Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/22/2014 -- The volume and value of trade in IT products will grow steadily over the medium term, helped by strong domestic consumption in the run up to the 2020 World Trade Expo in Dubai. However, the re-export market faces considerable downside risks in the long term from the likely improvement in the competitiveness of other countries in the region, both in terms of logistics facilities and country risk factors.

Key Trends & Developments
Dubai Customs reported that the total value of trade (import and export) in IT hardware and software rose 35% y-o-y to AED237bn (USD64.5bn) in 2013, equivalent to 18% of the emirate's total trade volume for the year. This was up from AED175bn in 2012 and AED113bn in 2011. BMI calculates that the FY13 IT trade value represents an impressive CAGR of 77.6% over a 12-year period, from just AED24bn in 2002. A significant proportion of that growth was driven by domestic consumption in the UAE with rapid economic growth and investment over the last decade. Dubai's position as a major trade hub is partly responsible for the growth, although improvements in the competitiveness of other major economies in the region will threaten its long term dominance.
