Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The US Computer Manufacturing industry is declining as the domestic market reaches saturation. As a result of offshoring in an effort to reduce production costs and heavy import penetration, domestic manufacturing activity has weakened. However, while demand has grown, fierce competition due to product homogeneity, which has resulted from computers being assembled from standardized components, has led to falling prices and slimmer profit margins. Although demand for computers is anticipated to increase over the next five years, US computer manufacturers as a whole are not expected to produce these goods domestically... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Computer Manufacturing industry has a low level of capital intensity. An estimated $0.03 is allocated toward capital expenses for every dollar spent on labor. Capital intensity has decreased since 2011, when $0.05 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
