Shutting down: Increased offshoring activity and declining product prices will hurt profit margins

Computer Manufacturing in the US

Aggressive competition has made computer manufacturing an increasingly commoditized business, with industry operators looking overseas to cut labor and production costs. Consequently, revenue for the Computer Manufacturing industry has declined in the five years to 2014. Although domestic demand for computers has increased, this development has not translated into greater activity for domestic manufacturers because of the industry's continued offshoring of manufacturing activities. Subsequently, even with a recovering economy and a slight resurgence in domestic manufacturing, revenue is projected to continue declining in the five years to 2019.

Companies in this industry manufactures and assembles personal computers (PCs), laptops and servers. Operators typically purchase computer components (e.g. motherboards and graphics cards) from dedicated manufacturers in other industries, such as semiconductor and circuit manufacturing (IBISWorld report 33441a). This industry does not include tablet computers or manufacturers of computer monitors, mice, keyboards and printers (see IBISWorld report 33411b for more information).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
