The revenue of the Computers and Computer Equipment Repair industry is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 1.6% over the five years through 2013-14. In 2013-14, the industry is projected to rise by 2.1% to £2.7 billion. The industry was insulated from many problems during the recession because although consumers had fewer repairs carried out, they became more likely to repair computers than to replace them. The fast pace of technological change is reducing the length of product life cycles. For example, the service range of the portable media market has expanded dramatically.
Companies in this industry repair and maintain computers and computer equipment, but not communications-related devices. This means that repair of computers, computer peripherals, tablets, gaming consoles, and public machines such as ATMs and cash registers is included, but repair of smartphones, fax machines and commercial-use cameras is excluded.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
