In the decade through 2009, the Computer Peripheral Equipment Manufacturing industry developed rapidly as domestic and foreign demand for the industry's products increased. Over the last five years, declining final prices and intense industry competition contributed to relatively slower industry revenue growth and narrower profit margins. In addition, as laptops have become more popular, demand for some computer peripheral equipment has declined. Over the five years through 2014, revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 12.0% to total $192.0 billion.
The Computer Peripheral Manufacturing industry comprises businesses that manufacture computer peripheral equipment and computer accessories. Computer peripheral equipment refers to all necessary and optional components of a computer, except the central processing unit (CPU) chip, the core chips and chipsets on mainboards, and extended cards.
