As laptops become more popular, demand for computer peripheral equipment is declining.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 18, 2013
In the decade through 2007, the Computer Peripheral Equipment Manufacturing industry in China developed rapidly as domestic and foreign demand for the industry's products increased. Over the last five years, declining final prices and intense industry competition contributed to relatively slower industry revenue growth and narrower profit margins. In addition, as laptops have become more popular, demand for some computer peripheral equipment has declined. Over the five years through 2013, revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 9.7% to total $160.50 billion, says IBISWorld.
International trade is highly important to the Computer Peripheral Equipment Manufacturing industry, with exports driving the industry's development over the past decade. Exports accounted for 96.6% of industry revenue in 1998, compared to a little less than half in 2013. Fifteen years ago, computer ownership and usage rates in China were low, and there was little domestic demand for computer peripheral equipment. With growing domestic demand, imports are set to satisfy a growing portion in 2013. Thailand and South Korea are the main supplying countries of computer peripheral equipment to China.
The industry concentration level is low, with the top four enterprises – LG Electronics, TPV Technology, Chi Mei Optoelectronics, and Seagate – accounting for an estimated 27.6% of total industry revenue in 2013. The concentration level is expected to increase in the future, as industry revenue from companies with core technologies and high-tech products, such as LCD monitors, display cards, motherboards, and hard drives, increases.
