Israel has one of the most mature consumer electronics markets in the region, with smartphones accounting for the vast majority of handset sales, and a strong demand for computer devices within its vibrant startup market and from global IT and CE vendors that have set up research and development centres in the country. Tablet computers gained traction slightly later in Israel than in many other developed markets and we therefore expect them to be the key driver of computers sales over the medium term, before levelling off towards the end of our forecast period in 2018.
