South Korea’s consumer electronics devices market, defined as the addressable market for computing devices, mobile handsets and AV products, is projected to be worth around US$12.7bn in 2010. This is expected to increase to US$12.9bn by 2014, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of less than 1% – slower than in the preceding five years.
