Published: Tue Jul 29 2014

We forecast that Singapore's consumer electronics spending will increase 6 .9 % in US dollar terms in 201 4 to reach USD 4. 6 bn , with the smartphone and tablet device markets continuing to be the most dynamic market segments . We expect market growth to accelerate from 2013 after a squeeze on growth from price erosion in the TV and notebook markets, as well as cannibalisation of digital camera and mp3 player volumes associated with the proliferation of multi-functional smartphone ownership . While growth is forecast to accelerate it will remain below emerging markets in APAC as Singapore has one of the highest smartphone and tablet penetration rates in the world, meaning it has passed through the period of strongest growth associated with rapidly rising penetration .
