Contributed significantly to the growth of the electronic devices retail are smart phones and computers. Explosion of new technologies, consumers are changing their consumption trends, switch to using integrated products which are more functional and convenient. In 2012, total global phones consumption sharply declined due to the decline of ordinary telephone lines and conversion trends in customer tastes into smartphones; however, phone consumption again ascends in recent years due to rapid increase in smartphones consumption. The trend to use alternative tablets for laptops and desktops is spreading across the world thanks to the usability and mobility.
