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 Investment Chapter

The Computer Manufacturing industry has a high level of capital intensity. An estimated $0.54 is allocated toward capital expenses for every dollar spent on labor. Capital intensity has decreased since 2009, when $0.56 was invested in capital for every dollar spent on labor. The decrease in capital intensity indicates the increasing standardization that is occurring within the industry. Workers in an assembly line process typically do computer assembly manually; while automation is technically feasible, the cost savings would be minor. Computer manufacturers do not actually produce computer components (see IBISWorld report 33441a Semiconductor and Circuit Manufacturing), which is the most capital-intensive activity in the supply chain... purchase to read more
