Abstract:

BMI View: We have made a downward revision to our historical data and forecast for the handset market, which has put a drag on our overall Consumer Electronics market forecast for South Africa. Based on new trade data for the country s consumer electronics market, and benchmarked against household income data and industry trends, we believe total spending on smartphones is lower than previously estimated. Despite these changes, we retain our view that the handset market has outperformed the PC and AV segments, as greater affordability and functionality make them a more essential purchase for many South African consumers. The PC and AV markets have underlying growth potential due to low device penetration rates, although we do not expect it to fulfil this potential, at least in the short- to medium term as currency weakness pushes up the cost of big ticket items. We forecast South African consumer electronics spending to grow at a -.- compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach USD-.-bn in ----. ...The PC and AV markets have underlying growth potential due to low device penetration rates, although we do not expect it to fulfil this potential, at least in the short- to medium term as currency weakness pushes up the cost of big ticket items.
