The Global Computer Hardware Manufacturing industry produces a range of products, including desktop and laptop personal computers (PCs), computer peripherals and storage devices. In the five years to 2015, competing trends have defined the industry's performance. Rising income levels throughout the world and the ubiquity of computer technology have increased demand for industry products, particularly in emerging markets. Conversely, growing competition from tablet devices and mobile phones has eroded demand for traditional PCs worldwide. Furthermore, the industry's notorious price competition has limited manufacturers' revenue potential.
This industry manufactures and assembles desktop and laptop computers, computer storage devices and computer terminals, as well as computer peripheral devices such as servers, modems and routers. Telecommunications equipment, such as cell phones, is excluded from this industry.
