Abstract Table of Contents Request Details Related
The consumer electronics market in Malaysia has expanded rapidly in value and volume terms in recent years as declining device prices combine with strong economic performance and r ising incomes to drive demand growth . Broadly speaking, we expect this dynamic we expect to remain in place in the medium term. I ncreasing competition in the smartphone, tablet and flat-screen TV markets from Chinese vendors will ensure the market continues to deepen, but as the market becomes saturated intense price competition is expected to result in a squeeze on value growth and vendor margins . There is also downside risk due to uncertainties over the export market, particularly the potential for a hard landing in China .

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: USD2.7bn in 2014 to USD2.9bn in 2015, growth of 8.2%. We also expect a resurgence in traditional form factor sales in 2015 while tablet sales will remain robust, although there is downside risk from consumer substitution of tablet for phablet purchases.

AV Sales: USD1.2bn in 2014 to USD1.2bn in 2015, an increase of 3.2%. The AV segment is again forecast to underperform, but after a precipitous decline in digital camera volumes in 2013 and 2014, we expect the market to stabilise form 2015.

Handset Sales: USD3.2bn in 2014 to USD3.3bn in 2015, growth of 4.4%. Saturation in the core smartphone market, combined with price erosion as vendor competition intensifies, will limit value increases from 2015.
