BMI View: We continue to maintain a positive outlook for the US consumer electronics market in our Q216 report update. We believe that the US consumer electronics market will remain the global leader in terms of market size and adoption of latest technologies over the course of 2016 to 2020. 2016 will see the overall market size expand by 2%, with the market reaching an estimated total value of USD320.1bn. We forecast a consumer electronics market 2016-2020 CAGR of 1.6%, with total spending reaching USD340.1bn by end of 2020. High device penetration rates, strong demand for the latest devices and short replacement cycles make the US the most market lucrative for vendors - but high penetration also results in diminished growth opportunities in some of the key markets such as tablets and smartphones, particularly when compared to emerging markets. Furthermore, over the medium term we believe questions still remain about the sustainability of consumption in the absence of strong wage growth and the fact that most sales will be upgrades rather than new customers.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments
  • Computer Hardware Sales: USD200.4bn in 2015 to USD205.1bn in 2016. Tablet volumes continue to be squeezed by a diminished pool of first-time buyers and lengthening replacement cycles.
  • AV Sales: USD54.8bn in 2015 to USD55.3bn in 2016. Market will begin to rebound after a contraction in 2015 driven by contractions in the digital camera market and saturation in TV set sales. The AV market will continue to underperform in 2016.
  • Handset Sales: USD58.6bn in 2015 to USD59.8bn in 2016. Growth is now expected to be stronger in later years of forecast, but smartphone market maturity and price pressures in the Android ecosystem will still mean handset market value growth deceleration over the medium term.
