BMI View:

The UK consumer electronics market is not impacted to the same extent as verticals with long investment time horizons by the political and regulatory uncertainty surrounding Brexit, but economic trends do mean the referendum result has transmitted into a weaker outlook. Sterling depreciation was the most immediate effect through erosion of import affordability as vendors facing narrow margins raised local currency prices, and with the prospect of ’hard’ Brexit gaining support in the ruling Conservative Party, risks are weighted to the downside. Our core scenario is however for a stabilisation of the economy and sterling from 2018 that will return device spending to a trend of modest expansion.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments



- Computer Hardware Sales: USD14.6bn in 2016 to USD14.1bn in 2020, a CAGR of -0.7% in US dollar terms. After a multi-year contraction we expect a return to modest growth from 2018, but sterling depreciation and potential cannibalisation of tablet spending by smartphones mean risks are concentrated to the downside.

- AV And Gaming Sales: USD7.1bn in 2016 to USD6.7bn in 2020, a CAGR of -1.4%. Price sensitivity is a negative against a backdrop of saturation and sterling depreciation, but tariff reductions could catalyse UHD upgrades over the medium term if Chinese vendors gain access on better terms and intensify price competition.
