"China Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2014" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Sep 18 2014

Consumer electronics spending in China is forecast to continue strong growth as vendors make inroads in key categories such as smartphones and PCs to achieve strong volume growth. An additional boost is the package of economic and social reforms announced by the government in late 2013, which should boost consumption , which had been effected to some extent by the cessation of government subsidies in 2013 . We expect the market value will grow by 8.5 % in 2014 and we expect growth momentum will be maintained over the medium term with a CAGR of 7.1 % 2014-2018 . As incomes rise in China , consumers will spend an increasing proportion on consumer electronics devices, a trend which will be amplified by declining prices for tablets, TVs and smartphones .

Headline Expenditure Projections

* Computer hardware sales: USD73.8bn in 2013 to USD80.3bn in 2014, +8.9% in US dollar terms. Tablets continue to be the outperforming device category, but after Microsoft cut OS licensing fees for low-cost notebooks in H114 there could be a shift in the competitive dynamic.
* AV sales: USD42.2bn in 2013 to USD45.0bn in 2014, +6.7% in US dollar terms. Flat-panel TV set sales are expected to continue strong growth with a boost in demand from the FIFA World Cup. Another area of significant potential growth is the games console market following the removal of the 13 year ban on the sale of such devices in China.
* Handset sales: USD80.0bn in 2013 to USD87.2bn in 2014, +9.0% in US dollar terms. As a result of high smartphone penetration and intense competition between vendors we expect handset market value growth will slow considerably in 2014.
