New Market Report: Malaysia Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Jan 01 2015

The consumer electronics market in Malaysia has expanded rapidly in value and volume terms in recent years as declining device prices combine with strong economic performance and r ising incomes to drive demand growth . Broadly speaking, we expect this dynamic we expect to remain in place in the medium term. I ncreasing competition in the smartphone, tablet and flat-screen TV markets from Chinese vendors will ensure the market continues to deepen, but as the market becomes saturated intense price competition is expected to result in a squeeze on value growth and vendor margins . There is also downside risk due to uncertainties over the export market, particularly the potential for a hard landing in China .

Handset Sales: USD3.2bn in 2014 to USD3.3bn in 2015, growth of 4.4%. Saturation in the core smartphone market, combined with price erosion as vendor competition intensifies, will limit value increases from 2015.
