EPSON IS eyeing up the Iraqi IT market, which could be worth as much as $1.42 billion by 2008 according to recent findings by Madar Research.

Speaking at the EPSON stand, N4-1, Khalil El Dalu, general manager, EPSON Middle East, is keen for his firm to make the most of its current footing in the region. "The revival of Iraq's information communication technology market is a positive sign for the region as a whole and will once again boost the growing demand for IT related equipment," said EL Dalu. "EPSON intends to leverage on its regional presence to play a key role in meeting the demands of users in Iraq."

Despite ongoing unrest in the country, Madar estimates that Iraq's public and private sectors will purchase around 450,000 PCs annually between 2004 and 2008. The report also indicates that Jordan, United Arab Emirates and Lebanon are expected to be the major suppliers of computer equipment to the Iraqi market.
