Electronics and Appliance Specialist Retailers in Norway - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jan 25 2016

Price continued to be the main focus for the largest electronics and appliance specialist retailers in Norway in 2015. This channel in Norway is dominated by two large players, Elkjøp and Expert, with there also being a growing threat from online retailers such as Komplett. This has led to the channel becoming somewhat saturated, with the result being a kind of price war between the major players. While this was counteracted by the weak krone in 2015, the major chains continued to fight for share by lowering their prices as much as possible. This made it very difficult for smaller chains to survive and ensured that the larger players strengthen their positions, while also tempering growth.

Competitive Landscape

Elkjøp Norge continued to lead electronics and appliance specialist retailers in 2015 with a value share of 51% and sales of approaching NOK8 billion. The company’s position can be mainly attributed to its Elkjøp banner, which held a 39% share, while its Lefdal banner accounted for the remaining 12%. As well as generally offering the cheapest prices, these two brands, particularly Elkjøp, are very strong when it comes to outlet numbers as well as store locations.

Industry Prospects

Electronics and appliance specialist retailers is anticipated to register an overall value decline of 1% at constant 2015 prices over the forecast period. The value that consumers place on various products in this industry, from smartphones to consumer appliances, is set to increase over the forecast period and lead to an even greater level of competition between the major players. This is set to put even more pressure on prices as chains attempt to undercut each other, in turn limiting value growth. This price pressure is also expected to further impact smaller players, with many set to struggle over 2015-2020.
