Summary

Kuwait adopted telecommunication technology much before its GCC peers. Kuwait was also the earliest adopter of internet in the region. However, the lack of independent regulator had slowed the development of Kuwait ICT sector. Consumer adoption which hitherto drove ICT spending in Kuwait received a boost with the establishment of Central Agency for Information technology (CAI), which is in charge of digitising initiatives in Government sector. 

In this report, we have highlighted Kuwait ICT investment trends and provided forecasts across Hardware, Software, IT services and Communication categories. Regulatory environment, ICT adoption in Government sector and Key players have been dealt with. Kuwait ICT infrastructure, accessibility and usage indicators with respect to other GCC countries have been examined. The report concludes with a discussion of key growth drivers in Kuwait ICT sector.
