  • High Speed Camera Market by Usage, Component (Image Sensors, Lens, Memory Systems, Image Processors and others), Accessory, Application (Automotive, Military, Defense & Aerospace, Research, Design & testing and others) & Geography – Global Trends & Forecasts to 2014 – 2020
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $4650 Onwards        Pages: 310

  • Saudi Arabia Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    BMI View: A government policy to reduce Saudi Arabia's reliance on foreign workers is having a negative impact on the sales of mobile handsets in the kingdom, with local retailers reporting that their sales have nearly halved as a result. Saudi Arabia's high mobile penetration rate has been largely boosted by the presence of a large number of foreign workers, many of whom were not included in official population statistics. BMI sees the government's move having a negative impact on mobile device......
  • Saudi Arabia Information Technology Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 87
    BMI View: Clear government support for IT in Saudi Arabia will ensure that it remains the biggest IT market in the Gulf region. While clearly defined ICT policies, helped by the country's relative political stability, aim to increase the sector's contribution to overall economic growth, high income levels in Saudi Arabia reduce consumers' appetite for counterfeit products, with well-developed formal distribution channels making it easier for vendors to reach customers. We note, however, that the......

    BMI View: Saudi Arabia's mobile market had grown beyond maturity as the country's mobile operators continued to build their subscriber bases. The latest data show that this trend is ending and we expect operators to focus their efforts on building revenues from existing subscribers. BMI has observed a number of developments that show operators are keen to build revenues on the back of growing demand for data and content, a strategy we believe will provide long term market value growth. While sub......

    BMI View: In 2014, BMI forecasts that Australian demand for consumer electronics will grow by around 1.8%, as weaker economic growth is forecast to hit the market over the short-to-medium term. Vendors will look to emerging product categories such as ultrabooks, Windows 8 tablets and phones, ultra-HD, smart and 3D TV sets, and LTE smartphones as areas of growth. Longer-term consumer electronics market drivers include rising incomes, technology innovation such as 4G LTE mobile networks and 3D TV,......
  • South Korea Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 70
    BMI View: The South Korean consumer electronics is mature, meaning growth rates will be below those of emerging markets. We expect the market will remain in positive growth territory over the medium term but growth will be slow, with a forecast CAGR of 3% 2014-2018 to US$18.7bn in 2018. In the short term, high household debt levels will be a constraint on consumer spending and high penetration rates mean there are limited first-time buyer opportunities. However, consumer appetite for innovative ......
  • Caribbean Telecommunications Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 175
    BMI View: We have added two new markets to the Caribbean Telecoms report in Q2 2014, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda. The inclusion of these two allows us to look at the region from a different angle, as both are among the most developed, supported by high GDP per capita, high proportion of postpaid subscribers and strong demand for 3G services. We expect both the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to become the outperformers in the region in terms of mobile data penetration, as centres for financial off......
  • South Korea Information Technology Report Q2 2014

    BMI View: We have a positive outlook for the development of the South Korean IT market during 2014 to 2018. We forecast market value will increase at a CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period to 2018 to reach a value of KRW31.3trn in 2018. Growth rates will be lower than emerging markets in APAC, but considering the advanced state of the South Korean market, these growth rates are robust. Our positive outlook is based on the continued strength of the hardware market, where demand is supported by s......

    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 107
    BMI View: While many aspects of the Finnish telecoms market appear to have reached saturation, BMI still identifies a number of opportunities for operators in the market. Wireline, in particular, has seen growth slow right down, with 2013 growth of around 3% in broadband subscriptions. Fixed-line telephones continue to rapidly decline, with little hope for a rebound or even a slow down expected in the near term. Growth in the mobile market dipped below 2% in 2013 compared to 2012, reaching penet......
