Headline Expenditure Projections
Key Trends And Developments
- Computer Hardware Sales: USD1.45bn in 2013 to USD1.53bn in 2014; +5.7% in US dollar terms. Tablets will be the outperforming device category again in 2014, but the announcement from Microsoft that it was cutting OS licensing fees on low-cost devices has boosted the notebook outlook.

The rankings methodology makes sophisticated use of over 40 industry, economic and demographic data points.
Conditions in the Colombian consumer electronics market are set to deliver strong growth throughout our five-year forecast period, as improved labour market dynamics and stronger private consumption will lead to rapid uptake of smartphones and tablets. Similarly r ising credit growth to bolster private consumption levels will benefit consumer electronics products at the higher end of the market. This will allow vendors to tap into the relatively low penetration rates in key device categories such as PCs, smartphones and flat-panel TVs. One potential risk we highlight is the our expectation that oil revenues are set to head lower in the coming years, which will force the government into a decision between cutting spending or relaxing its fiscal consolidation targets . The Consumer Electronics and IT markets have benefitted greatly from social spending programs for tablet distribution and universal internet access, and a curtailed government budget would put pressure on these projects.
