The Poland Consumer Electronics Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, electronics associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Poland's consumer electronics industry..

BMI expects the Poland consumer electronics market will grow by around 6% in 2012, which is a moderation as consumer confidence is affected by fiscal retrenchment and uncertainty. Consumer electronics was also a growth leader in 2011 as total Polish retail sales rebounded strongly but most indicators point towards continued weakening in 2012. We forecast household consumption to grow by a tepid 1.0% in 2012. Private consumption grew 3.1% in 2011, compared to an average of 3.8% over the previous five years. With the Polish central bank pushing banks to boost capital buffers, we see little scope for a significant expansion of consumer credit, Over the five-year forecast period however, BMI forecasts a steady increase in spending on digital lifestyle items such as smartphones and LED TV sets,
driven by rising disposable incomes, consumers seeking choice and low prices offered by foreign and domestic chains.
