Computers and peripherals sales in Austria continued to see positive growth in 2015, albeit at a lower rate than in 2014. Trends which had negatively impacted computers and peripherals throughout the review period continued in 2015. As such, the number of consumers in Austria opting for tablets yet again increased at the expense of desktops and laptops. In addition, an increasing number of consumers used their smartphones instead of computers in 2015, which also placed pressure on computer manufacturers and negatively impacted computer volume and value growth. These consumer trends also negatively affected sales of monitors in 2015, although the retail volume and value declines of monitors were not as steep in 2015 as in the previous year.
