Imaging Devices in Venezuela - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Dec 27 2015

The supply situation in imaging devices was complex due to the shortage of brands in the country, which was exacerbated at the end of 2014 and in early 2015 due to increased demand over the holiday season and the Venezuelan government’s aggressive stance on private enterprise, which assumed there was an "economic war" waged by the private sector to create chaos and overthrow President Nicolás Maduro. Imaging devices therefore recorded a volume decline of 54% in 2015. Players were unable to quickly replenish inventories, which only covered demand for a few weeks, and there was little confidence that products would be available later with low levels of supply.

Competitive Landscape

Sony Latin Americ Inc ranked first in imaging devices in 2015, accounting for 32% of total volume sales. Panasonic de Venezuela was in second place overall with a volume share of 27%. Sony is perceived as a brand of quality products in Venezuela and it has a high penetration in the Venezuelan market. Traditional brands have maintained its presence in stores, but with lower stocks because of restrictions to imports.
