India's status as a large emerging market that is making progress on the policy environment for a range of sectors, combined with its late developer status in terms of consumer electronics device adoption rates, means we expect it to be a regional outperformer over the medium term. We expect the market to remain on a strong growth trajectory 2015-20 1 8, with particularly robust demand growth for computer hardware and handsets expected . We forecast the total consumer electronics spend in India will increase by 8.1 % in US dollar terms in 2015 to USD 76.9 bn, and then reach USD92.5bn in 2018 .
