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

BMI projects that Argentine consumer electronics spending will grow by about 7% in US dollar terms in 2012 to US$5.8bn, with our headline forecast unchanged despite an uncertain economic outlook. We still expect sales of mobile handsets, plasma TV sets, digital cameras and other categories of consumer electronics products to grow in 2012, as monetary and fiscal policies remain highly expansionary.

However, there will likely be a moderation compared with the situation in 2011, as the government's continued fiscal support to household incomes may not be sustainable. Meanwhile the tax on ‘luxury goods’ such as mobile phones and digital cameras has dramatically boosted the share of local production in Argentine market sales, while sales of imported consumer electronics devices have fallen sharply.
