Abstract:

As a result of substantial yen appreciation against the US dollar over the course of H--- that followed the Bank of Japan s introduction of negative interest rates in early ---- the value growth outlook for consumer electronics spending improved considerably. We forecast an increase of --.- to USD--.-bn in ----, but the local currency forecast is much more modest with growth of -.- . Aside from the direct impact of appreciation on our forecast, economic conditions will remain weak, with real GDP and private final consumption growth of -.- forecast, which in the broader context of device saturation and an aging population offers little growth potential. The computer hardware segment is expected to rebound in ----, aided by yen appreciation and the fact volumes will recover somewhat from the lows of ---- when desktop and notebook sales fared particularly poorly as replacement sales declined sharply following concentration in ---- due to the withdrawal of Microsoft support for XP.
