Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer Hardware Sales: USD860mn in 2013 to USD916mn in 2014, +6.5% in US dollar terms. Growth potential still exists in both the desktop and notebook markets despite the impact of cannibalisation by tablets, which are expected to continue outperforming.

Peru's consumer electronics market is expected to expand rapidly as declining device prices and rising incomes converge . Economic g rowth is relatively broad - based relative to other regional markets, which yields a positive outlook for demand for devices such as notebooks, tablets, smartphones and flat-screen TVs. BMI forecasts consumer electronics sales to grow by 7 .3% in 2014, backed by a rise in consumer spending and low penetration of devices such as PCs and smartphones. Meanwhile, the launch of 4G LTE by Movistar in January 2014 should boost sales of mobile handsets at the higher end of the market.
