Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Electronic products production has continued to shift from developed economies to areas where labor costs are relatively low
  • More operators have gained a presence in China, where industry demand has escalated
  • Demand for consumer electronics will be promoted by their falling selling prices
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    Over the five years to 2016, demand for downstream consumer electronics, automobiles, computers and industrial machinery rose, as consumers completed purchases they had postponed during the financial crisis. More recently, however, softer demand from emerging marketsand a strong US dollar have led to lower semiconductor and component sales. Additionally, prices for various products were volatile over the period. Overall, revenue is expected to increase slowly over the five years to 2016. Over the next five years, multifunctional devices, such as smartphones, are expected to eliminate single-use devices such as digital cameras. As technology changes increases demand for smaller and more functional products, industry operators will need to develop new technologies to meet these demands...
