Annual survey of the electronics industry in Western Europe providing production data for the period 2013-2016 and market data for the period 2013-2019. Published since 1973 data is supplied for 16 countries and 13 major product groups.

Introduction
The recovery in the European economy and in particular in the Eurozone in 2015 has helped support a return to growth in the West European electronics industry, this despite the slowdown in some key emerging markets during the year. In Euro’s the production of electronic equipment grew by 2.7% in 2015 and was up from the 0.8% posted in 2014 and the declines of 3.3% and 0.2% reported in 2013 and 2012, respectively. The top line figures however, mask the impact of exchange rates. In constant 2014 exchange rates growth in 2015 would have been 0.3%. The outlook for 2016 remains uncertain. Macroeconomic and geopolitical developments continue to raise concerns for a sustained recovery. Based on current indicators we are forecasting growth in electronic equipment output of 1.8% in 2016 with stronger growth in the second half of the year. This then should accelerate to 2.7% in 2017 and remain at around similar levels throughout the period to 2019.

Growth will be driven by the core industrial segment which accounted for an estimated 56% of electronics equipment output in 2015 and which will be the main driver of growth over the period to 2019, when it will account 59% of the total. Following four years of decline the communications sector was flat in 2015 (-1.8% in constant exchange rates), in part due stronger demand in the aerospace and defence segments. Over the period to 2019 the production of communications equipment is expected to benefit from increased defence spending and the opportunities arising from the Internet of Things and the next generation of wireless technologies. Computer output will continue to decline over the forecast period as will the production of video and audio equipment. The move to manufacture in the region of consumption is a growing trend across the global electronics industry. There is clear evidence that companies have re-shored production back to Europe from Asia and that they are increasingly looking at Europe rather than Asia for the production of certain products. However, manufacturers may opt to look at lower cost facilities in Central and Eastern Europe rather than utilise sites in Western Europe. Germany accounted for 31% of electronics equipment output in 2015 and its overall share is expected to edge up over the period to 2019. France and the UK which are traditionally strong in communications will like the majority of countries benefit from the growth in the industrial segment. The Nordic countries, and in particular Finland and Sweden have been impacted by a major restructuring of the communications industry.

In 2014, the production of electronic components in Western Europe amounted to Euro 34.3 billion, 23% of overall electronics production. Output declined by 2.2% during the year the decline in response to the overall
market situation, the on-going restructuring of the photovoltaic sector and increased competition from Asian manufacturers of commodity products.
