In addition to published reports, including the industry benchmark series the Yearbook of World Electronics Data, information can be provided on individual countries or tailored to meet customers’ specific requirements. The database is also unique in providing historical data back to 1995 and for selected countries to 1985.
Volume 3 Emerging Markets & World Summary
Growth within the global electronics industry started to gain momentum in the later part of 2013 a trend which will continue in 2014 and then accelerate in the period to 2017, with stronger growth in the emerging markets. Growth is being driven by the improved outlook for the global economy although downside risks still remain, in particular from geopolitical events globally including the Ukraine and the Middle East.
China is the largest producer of electronic products accounting for over a third of global production in 2013 and as such events in the country dominate the electronics industry. In 2013, electronic output increased by 5% to US$613 billion down from growth of 6% a year earlier, and is forecast to pick-up slightly in 2014 to 5.5%. Over the longer-term growth in the Chinese electronics industry is expected to slow as the industry matures. Rising labour costs, due in part to stricter labour regulations will also contribute to potentially slower growth over the coming years. To offset rising costs companies have relocated some production to rural areas. Other factors which will have an impact on electronics output over the medium term include increased competition from other countries as a base for low-cost manufacturing, the move by foreign companies to reduce its reliance on China and the move to “re-shore” production back to Western Europe and the US. Though China dominates electronics production in Asia and globally, other Asian countries have established significant electronics industries, with South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore all playing an important role
within the global market.
Since 2000 there has been a major structural change in the global electronics industry with companies lowering costs by relocating volume manufacturing from high-cost to low-cost locations. As shown below, the Asia-Pacific (and China in particular) has been the main beneficiary, but also Central and Eastern Europe, Mexico and Brazil have also benefited from significant inward investment.
In 1995 production in “high-cost” locations* accounted for 75% of electronics output. By 2000 this figure had already fallen to 67% and in 2013 it is estimated that 33% of electronics production will be in high cost locations. Between 1995 and 2013 Asia Pacific’s share of global electronics production has increased from 20% to 57%. More importantly during this period China’s share of global electronics production has increased from 3% to 35% and transformed the structure of the global electronics industry.
To take advantage of the opportunities within the global electronics industry will require a clear understanding of the current structure of the global electronics industry, how it has developed on a country, regional and global level. In addition to market and production data on nine countries the Volume 3 also contains a unique global summary covering production data 2007-2010 and market data 2007-2013 for the 53 countries covered in the Yearbook database.
