Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Aggressive competition has made computer manufacturing an increasingly commoditized business, with industry operators looking overseas to cut labor and production costs. Consequently, revenue for the Computer Manufacturing industry has declined in the five years to 2014. Although domestic demand for computers has increased, this development has not translated into greater activity for domestic manufacturers because of the industry's continued offshoring of manufacturing activities. Subsequently, even with a recovering economy and a slight resurgence in domestic manufacturing, revenue is projected to continue declining in the five years to 2019... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

In the five years to 2014, aggressive competition has made computer manufacturing an increasingly standardized business, causing industry product prices to fall, thereby limiting revenue potential. In addition, industry operators have continued to relocate production activity overseas to take advantage of more attractive labor and production costs in order to compete with foreign manufacturers. Consequently, revenue for the Computer Manufacturing industry is expected to decline at an average annual rate of 17.7% over the five-year period. A mild increase in computer shipments in the US during the second and third quarters of 2014 is expected to temper the decline, with revenue anticipated to fall 7.1% over the year to $14.3 billion... purchase to read more
