In 2015, peso depreciation will be a drag on the market value growth, whereas lower oil prices should feed through to a higher spending power at the consumer level. Low penetration of smartphones and tablets should continue to be the key drivers of Chile's consumer electronics market over our forecast period, helped by their growing affordability and the advent of the USD100 smartphone.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer sales: USD1.269bn in 2015 to USD1.368bn in 2016, 7.8% in US dollar terms. Unit growth is being driven by the boom in tablet sales, but with additional volume concentrated at the low-end, and peso depreciation forecast for 2015, we expect a contraction in market value.
