On the line: Computer purchases will increase, but high external competition will impede growth

Abstract
Computer Stores in the US

The Computer Stores industry will benefit as computers are swiftly becoming essential household and personal products. Despite the growing ubiquity of these products, retailers of computers, peripherals and consumer electronics have experienced some onerous challenges over the past five years. Rapid technological change, increased production efficiency and a highly globalized supply chain have lowered computer retail prices, hampering the industry’s revenue potential. Additionally, the increasing adoption of e-commerce has reduced customer traffic in computer stores, further limiting revenue. More consumers are taking advantage of online shopping, which facilitates product and price comparisons. Subsequently, over the five years to 2017, industry revenue is expected to decrease. The domestic personal computer market is showing signs of saturation while mobile devices are growing increasingly complex. Additionally, intense price competition and growing external threats from online retailers have led to slow revenue growth. To mitigate flat sales and lower customer traffic, industry operators have trimmed their geographic presence and invested in enhanced customer services. The Computer Stores industry is expected to grow slowly over the five years to 2022. Competition from online distributors will continue to erode the industry’s customer and revenue base, augmented by a growing number of smartphone devices and e-commerce applications.

This industry includes operators that mainly retail desktops, notebook computers and software, as well as accessories like printers, scanners and keyboards. These goods are generally purchased from domestic and international manufacturers and wholesalers and then sold to end consumers, including households
and businesses.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
