Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer hardware sales: USD1.2bn in 2013 to USD1.2bn in 2014, a contraction of 0.9%. The market will perform better than in 2012 and 2013 as desktop and notebook volumes increase, but price erosion and depreciation of the koruna will be a drag on growth.
AV sales: USD693mn in 2013 to USD717mn in 2014, up 3.5%. We expect TV set demand will grow in 2014 as a result of the FIFA World Cup, while digital camera volumes are expected to stabilise, both of which contribute to the turnaround in fortunes after a sharp contraction in 2013.
Handset sales: USD573mn in 2013 to USD617mn in 2014, up 7.7%. The handset market will be the most dynamic market segment as smartphone volumes boom, driving up the average selling price of the market as a whole and offsetting the slowdown from saturation of the mobile subscription market.

After a challenging period from 2011 to 2013 during which consumer electronics demand contracted in the Czech Republic there are indications of a resurgence in demand in 2014 - in line with our expectations. TV set saleswere expected to pick up in 2014 ahead of the FIFA World Cup, while data indicate sales of desktops and notebooks bounced back in H114, and smartphone and tablet sales continue to boom. These trends will reinforce the Czech Republic's position asone of the most lucrative in Central and Eastern Europe.However, there is downside risk, with the weakening of the koruna pushing up prices of imported products and acting as a drag on growth.Meanwhile the crisis in Ukraine results in heightened risk of cyber security incidents in the region.
