Russia Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Russia Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: There are positive fundamentals for medium to long term growth in consumer electronics
spending in Russia, such as relatively low device penetration rates and rising incomes. However this growth
story has faced a major disruption following the imposition of sanctions against Russia in mid-2014 that
have resulted in economic crisis and sharp depreciation of the rouble against the US dollar. This will hit
Russian consumers' purchasing power, as well as leading to some vendors cutting supply of devices due to

Saudi Arabia Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Saudi Arabia Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: Saturation in key device categories such as smartphones and tablets means growth will be
subdued in the Saudi consumer electronics market over 2015-2018, with a forecast compound annual
growth rate of 1%. Although overall growth prospects are limited, we expect the market to remain highly
lucrative to vendors. The mid- to high-end consumer electronics devices market will experience strong
value growth during our forecast period to 2018 on the back of rising income, especially for public-sector

South Africa Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: Slower forecasted growth will have a greater effect on the growth of the computer segment of
the Consumer Electronics industry in South Africa. To some extent this will be offset by an increasing
interest in tablets as mobile operators encourage greater data usage through launching own-brand low
price devices. The popularity of smartphones launched by MTN and Vodacom highlight the potential for
low priced devices although we believe there will be a steady demand for PCs and notebooks in the longer

South Korea Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: We expect the South Korean consumer electronics market will continue to grow over the
medium term, but growth will be slow due to market maturity and significantly underperform emerging
markets in the region. In the short term, high household debt levels will be a constraint on consumer
spending and over the medium term high penetration rates in almost all device categories means there will
be no surge in demand as first-time buyers enter the market. However, consumer appetite for innovative

United Arab Emirates Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

United Arab Emirates Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: The UAE is one of the most attractive markets for consumer electronics products in the Middle
East and North Africa largely due to the relatively high spending power of its citizens and the large number
of well-paid expatriate workers in the country. These factors, along with population growth and high visitor
numbers, will drive domestic demand for high-end and budget devices, although Dubai's trade hub status
will remain an important factor in the overall growth of foreign trade in consumer electronics products.

United States Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: The US consumer electronics market is a global leader in terms of market size and adoption of
the latest technology - with high penetration rates in most device categories. However, it has not been
immune from the squeeze on key markets such as tablets, smartphones and digital cameras. Despite the
maturity of the market BMI believes significant opportunities remain in emerging product categories, as
well as the result of a high replacement rate in key categories such as smartphones. Growth areas include

Hong Kong Retail Report Q2 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: While the performance of the retail sector failed to meet expectations during 2014 we continue
to see long-term potential in the expansion of Hong Kong's retail market. Despite these downside risks, we
remain confident that providing Hong Kong can continue to provide favourable job conditions and ensure
disposable income levels continue to rise, they should be able to generate increased retail spending.
External factors associated with sluggish inbound tourism spending and local political unrest were largely

Serbia Retail Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: The Serbian economy struggles to sustain a healthy growth rate as it is set to contract by 2.5%
in 2015 on the back of falling exports and decreasing household spending. The outlook for the retail sector
is equally negative for the first half of BMI's forecast period: strict cuts on government's spending in 2015
will result in falling total household spending in 2015-2016 posing threats for the growth of retailers' sales.
Population will decline slightly, and unemployment will remain high; however, this will not prevent the

Slovenia Retail Report Q2 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: The Slovenian retail market is set to post a slow but stable growth rate over the forecast period
amidst the public reforms and high market maturity. The decline of euro against dollar will make non-EU
imports less competitive, however, the European retail chains and consumer goods producers will benefit
from a mature and increasingly sophisticated Slovenian retail market. Total household spending will rise by
1.3% in euro terms in 2015 and will accelerate slowly to reach almost USD30bn in 2019 as the country and

United Arab Emirates Retail Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 30 2015

BMI View: Consumer and business sentiment in the UAE remains positive, with prices across real estate
and equity markets having started to head sharply higher in recent months - boding well for prospects of a
positive wealth effect. Household spending is forecast to rise from USD32.2bn in 2015 to USD43.1bn by
2018 as incomes rise and more households move into the USD50,000-plus wage bracket. With more than a
third of all households at this income level by 2018, the growth prospects for retail sectors such as clothing
& footwear are very strong.

China Retail Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 21 2015

BMI View: Rising disposable incomes due to the increasing number of households moving into the
USD10,000-plus income bracket will lead to a steady expansion of the Chinese retail sector over the next
few years. Household spending is forecast to rise across all retail subsectors, with fashion and consumer
electronics set to benefit particularly well from the burgeoning e-commerce sector. However, the greatest
proportion of the household budget will continue to be spent on food and drink throughout our forecast
period.

provide retailers with almost-unparalleled growth opportunities. Total household spending in the world's
largest Muslim country will be growing between 9% and 15% annually throughout our forecast period. The
presence of foreign retailers remains quite limited; however, the Indonesian retail market welcomes wellknown
groceries and fashion retail brands. A young and rapidly-growing population will keep improving

Vietnam Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Vietnam Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Jan 14 2015
There is some downside risk to our consumer electronics spending outlook in 2015 due to an ongoing tightening of domestic credit conditions in the second half of 2014 due to a build of bad debts by Vietnamese banks. However, we maintain that Vietnam's consumer electronics market has a bright outlook as rising incomes and falling average device prices in key device categories over the medium term catalyse strong growth in spending.
