New Market Research Report: Portable Players in Denmark

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Dec 29 2015

Competition from substitutable products had a negative impact on retail volume sales for portable players in 2015. This was a common theme in the latter years of the review period. The low absolute volume sale for e-readers can be attributed to the high household penetration of tablets that, to a certain extent, negates the need to have an e-reader. The household penetration of tablets reached 52% in 2015. Similarly, portable media players faced competition from smartphones. Smartphones offer the same functionalities as portable media players, and with additional features, enjoy significantly higher levels of market penetration. The household penetration of smartphones equalled 145% in 2015.

Competitive Landscape Inc led e-readers with retail volume share of 53% in 2015. This represented a 13-percentage point increase on 2014ís results. Amazonís position is tied to the low absolute volume sale of e-readers and subsequently the relatively low number of e-reader models sold in Denmark. Accordingly, growth for Amazon and its Kindle brand in 2015 was primarily attributed to an increased concentration in the sale of e-readers with brands such as AGK Nordic and Trekstor A/S exiting the market in 2014.

Industry Prospects

Portable players will record retail volume declines over the forecast period in the face of competition from smartphones and tablets, both of which incorporate the functionality of standalone media players. To stay relevant to consumers in this scenario, manufacturers of standalone media players will need to follow the example set by players in cameras and camcorders by focusing on improving the quality of the experience. Manufacturers of media players will need to emphasise the superior sound and text rendering, as well as battery performance and compact size, offered by their products.
