UK Consumer Electronics Market Reviewed in Comprehensive BMI Research Study Available at

08 Feb 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Per capita expenditure on consumer electronics devices in the UK is at a high level, supported by the country’s affluent population and robust demand for the cutting-edge products. 

However, the growth outlook is subdued as the market is mature enough; implying vendors are to a large degree reliant upon replacement sales on a mid-term horizon. 

The population increase is likely to provide some growth momentum, but the major upside to the sluggish-growth outlook lies in device innovation, most notably wearable devices, although the 1st generation failed to gain consumer goods market traction. 

Forecasts say the overall consumer electronics spending in the country will likely grow at 0.9% CAGR through 2019 to stand at USD 50.7 billion by 2019.

The sales of computer hardware are poised to increase at 0.9% a CAGR, from USD 27.3 billion in 2016 to stand at USD 28.8 billion by 2019. On the back of the market maturity the growth in volume terms is expected to be modest, whilst the decline in desktop expenditure will in part offset a return to growth of the tablet and notebook markets.
