Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2015 -- Retail volume growth in computers and peripherals slowed to 11% in 2014, along with the stabilisation of demand for tablets. Technology-savvy consumers in the United Arab Emirates continued to be attracted by the latest computers, laptops and tablets, as surfing the internet is a favourite pastime of most residents, as outdoor activities are limited by the extremely hot weather conditions. With an internet usage penetration rate of over 90%, consumers in the United Arab Emirates are online for much of their working day, as well as at home at the weekends. Most time is spent on social networking sites such as Facebook, but increasingly youngsters are also interested in photo-based networking sites such as Instagram and Flickr.

Competitive Landscape

The leader in desktops in the United Arab Emirates is Hewlett-Packard Middle-East, with a 38% share of retail volume sales of desktops in 2013. This leading position is partly thanks to the strong push of the company towards all-in-one PCs, which significantly gained popularity in 2013. This affected the other key players in the category, Lenovo Technology and Dell Computer, which both lost some share in 2013. The Lenovo brand held second position with a share of 18%, whilst Dell was third with a share of 17%. Lenovo?s aggressive pricing and wide-reaching distribution propelled the company over Dell in 2012 for the first time.
