"Croatia Consumer Electronics Report Q1 2016" is now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

We maintain a modestly subdued outlook for the Croatian consumer electronics market in our Q1 16 report update. We revised downwards ou r projections of the market in the Q415 report to capture the n egative impacts of the kun a depreciation against the US dollar. In 2016, we believe the market will begin to stabilize and recover from the negative shocks of 2015. This year, the market will contract by a modest -0.4% before returning to positive growth in 2017 and beyond. There are however areas of opportunity, particularly from 2017, as vendors will be better positioned to tap into comparatively low penetra tion rates in device categories including tablets, hybrid notebooks, smartphones, smart TVs and UHD TV sets .

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: USD310mn in 2015 to USD299mn in 2016. Kuna depreciation in 2015/16 will result in deferred purchases and the substitution for cheaper models, meaning the value decline will exceed that for PC volumes. Another drag on market value is the shift in sales towards cheaper tablets, which have lower average selling prices compared to the notebook units being cannibalised.
AV Sales: USD169mn in 2015 to USD166mn in 2016. AV market growth trend already weak due to TV market saturation and digital camera cannibalisation, trends that will be exacerbated by kuna depreciation.
Handset Sales: USD243mn in 2015 to USD254mn in 2016. BMI forecasts a 4.5% growth in value in 2016, but even so the handset market is expected to fare better in a challenging macro environment due to lower average selling prices and more inelastic demand for replacement purchases.
