Middle East TMT predictions 2013

Get an in-depth view


The report, now in its 12th year, is compiled through a series of interviews with Deloitte clients and practitioners covering a range of topics, from the continued dominance of personal computers (PCs) as measured by usage despite inferior sales relative to smart devices, a surge in LTE launches, and data access, to smartphones and the vulnerability of passwords.

Additional highlights of this year’s TMT predictions to impact the Middle East marketplace in 2013 include:

  • “Mobile advertising” thrives, led by tablets, but smartphone display lags
  • A billion smartphones should ship for the first time ever
  • A strong year for LTE, but end-game strategies of regional operators are as yet unclear
  • Dual screening readies for prime time
  • PC is not dead, it’s about usage and not units
  • The looming spectrum shortage : Spectrum harmonization and re-farming critical to growth
  • Over-the –top may lift broadcasters and distributors more than pure plays
