Global Computer Hardware Industry

Computer hardware, which is part of the wider sector of IT Hardware, refers to computer equipment by cables. Common computer peripherals include the keyboard, mouse, printer, scanner and disk drive. The industry is characterized by intense competition, with many companies providing various products and services to improve consumer use of computers. These products can be geared toward home use as with personal computers, and also to the business world as with server computers. The global computer and peripherals industry provides connectivity, be it to link consumers and businesses, or businesses and suppliers.

Regional Computer Hardware Market Share

There are more than 400 computer hardware equipment manufacturing companies operating in the US, reports IBISWorld. Production of peripherals and monitors witnessed 9% yearly growth over the past five-year period. However, price declines dragged growth down.

India’s computer peripherals market is set to continue recording strong growth over the coming years. One driving force behind the market is the need to replace obsolete hardware. Other growth factors include a large computer base, rising levels of disposable income, falling prices, state participation and a mature e-commerce market. Demand for computer peripherals will continue to grow thanks to government initiatives, including e-governance. Some hurdles face players operating in the Indian computer peripherals sector, including widespread penetration of smart handheld devices. These devices minimize demand for more-frequently used computer peripherals. The country’s grey market is also dragging down revenue, making products available before they are officially launched and charging lower prices to attract consumers eager to obtain the latest products. Trends emerging in India’s computer peripherals market include a greater focus on the aesthetic aspect of products, growing LED monitors demand and industry players moving into the smart handheld device market segment. Manufacturers are concentrating their efforts on providing consumers with more compact, aesthetically pleasing, portable products. LED display units are gaining in popularity due to the fact that they use less power and are highly portable, making them convenient for consumers.

The UK computer and peripheral equipment wholesaling sector: there are around 2,000 outfits operating in the sector, accounting for the distribution of around 90% of the software, computer and computer peripheral equipment purchased in the UK. The UK computer equipment supply chain has witnessed an increasing degree of consolidation. The industry has low concentration, with the four leading outfits generating around 25% of overall industry revenue. UK computer equipment industry revenue encompasses local vendor subsidiaries along with revenue generated by resellers and distributors. The country has a range of peripherals, software and personal computers vendors, many dealing with resellers and distributors and others selling directly to end users, such as Dell. The UK’s four leading computer vendors are Dell, HP, Acer and Toshiba, accounting for almost 65% of computer sales combined. Leading players in the mid-range computer segment include Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Oracle, with around 30 vendors operating in the UK in total.
