China Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2013

BMI expects the China consumer electronics market will grow by around 9% in 2013. We forecast

headline consumer spending to grow at 8.0% in 2012 and 2013, which marks a downward revision from

our previous forecast of 8.4% for both years. The government's rural consumer electronics subsidy

programme should continue to drive flat-screen TV sets and other products and electronic vendors and

retailers are expanding and adjusting strategies to take advantage of this opportunity.

Vendors will look to newer technologies such as Smart TVs, LED TV sets and 3D TV sets, to drive sales.

Smartphones are estimated to account for above 40% of total handset sales in China, and this share will

pass 60% by 2017.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer hardware sales: US$80.3bn in 2012 to US$88.3bn in 2013, +10% in US dollar terms. Forecast

downwardly revised in US dollar terms due to macroeconomic factors, following a slowdown in H112.

AV sales: US$77.5bn in 2012 to US$84.7bn in 2013, +9% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar

terms unchanged, with the main driver being demand for flat-screen TV sets.

Handset sales: US$42.4bn in 2012 to US$45.1bn in 2013, +7% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar

terms downwardly revised, but with strong volume growth of smartphones.

Risk/Reward Ratings: China's score was 61 out of 100. China took 5th place in our latest RRR table,

but due to its vast market and rising penetration has potential to rise over time.

Key Trends & Developments

By the end of BMI's five-year forecast period, the rural PC and notebook market could account

for as much as 35-40% of total China computer sales. The subsidy programme will continue to

boost demand from the vast, under-penetrated rural areas. The lower-tier city and towns are

expected to be the fastest growing segment of the PC market in 2013, although this has placed

pressure on prices.

After two years of robust growth in the TV market, vendors will also look to third- and fourthtier

cities and rural areas to sustain demand for TV sets, after signs of slower sales in major

cities. . About 58% of LCD TVs are now sold through retail channels, with sales strongest

during holiday peak shopping periods. Despite a tranche of product innovations, average prices

declined in 2012, meaning that revenues growth failed to keep pace with shipments.

The tastes of Chinese consumers with regards to handsets also appears to be growing more

sophisticated, with China now a key engine driving the global smartphone market. China

Mobile forecasts sales of smartphones could reach 100mn units by 2013, while BMI projects

that sales could pass 500m units by 2017. Vendors such as Samsung expect that China will be

among their most important markets for smartphones.

  • Bahrain Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: Bahrain has proved to be a lucrative consumer electronics device market for vendors, however the result of high incomes and demand for the latest products is that by 2016 most product categories are saturated - and so growth potential is limited. Over the medium term we expect to see a market where volume and value growth is modest, with a small boost from an expanding working age population, but also downside from form factor innovation that could see smartphon......
  • Brazil Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: Economic and political crisis in Brazil has hit consumer electronics spending hard, with steep declines in 2015 and 2016. The outlook is subdued as a result of a sluggish economic recovery that means a bounce back in device spending is unlikely, with the purchasing power forecast to be well below the 2013-2014 peak, even by 2020. Nonetheless, the device market is forecast to return to growth from 2017 as the economic environment at least becomes less hostile, an......

    BMI View: After a double-digit contraction in 2015 when kuna depreciation hit consumer electronics spending in Croatia, we forecast a return to growth from 2016 and a CAGR of 2.9% for 2016-2020. A stronger economic environment including GDP growth and kuna appreciation will be a welcome boost for vendors after recession during 2009-2014 and then the blow to affordability from depreciation in 2015. This will allow vendors to tap remaining first-time buyer opportunities as ......

    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: Kuwait is a high value consumer electronics market in per capita terms, and there was strong growth fuelled by first-time sales of smartphones, tablets and flat-panel TV sets from the global financial crisis until 2014. The growth potential of the market is however much reduced by 2016 as a result of saturation in most device categories, as well as the threat of cannibalisation of distinct devices, such as tablets and digital cameras, by smartphones. Further, th......
  • Vietnam Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: Vietnam's consumer electronics market has huge potential for growth as incomes rise. We have a positive outlook for broad based economic growth that should sustain increases in device spending over the medium term as vendors will be able to tap into existing low device penetration rates. There is however, some uncertainty around the PC market, where sales dived in H116, which has increased concerns that the proliferation of smartphone ownership could see consume......
  • Colombia Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: The Colombian consumer electronics devices market is served primarily through imported devices, and as such the exchange rate has a significant impact on domestic spending trends through shifts in the affordability of devices. This was evident in 2015 when sharp depreciation resulted in a steep decline in device spending across all three segments, and with a weaker peso-USD outlook we moderated our forecast for 2016-2020 in the Q416 update, now envisaging a CAGR......
  • Iran Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    BMI View: We expect that the Iranian consumer electronics market will move into a stronger era of growth from 2017 as a result of the easing of sanctions that will contribute to stronger economic performance and increase competition as international vendors re-enter the market. We forecast that this shift will support a device spending CAGR of 4.3% over 2016-2020, but caution that downside risk is still significant due to the potential for further oil price declines. Ther......

    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    BMI View: Oman's consumer electronics market has a weak outlook over the medium term as a result of approaching saturation in key device categories, especially smartphones, against a backdrop of economic uncertainty due to oil prices and the depletion of demographics as a growth driver. The market should continue to be lucrative in per capita terms on the basis of replacement spending, but we caution that the broad economic and demographic support that drove growth in the......
