We project that Vietnam consumer electronics spending will grow by about 19% in US dollar terms in 2012 to US$5.5bn. In Q112, sales of PCs, feature phones and smartphones were all down by a double-digit factor compared with the final quarter of 2011. Economic uncertainty exacerbated the usual decline in consumer spending following the Lunar New Year peak shopping season.

However, the country’s vast, underpenetrated rural market offers the most growth potential, with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City accounting for most sales. In 2011 Vietnamese retail demand for consumer electronics products grew robustly, despite pressure on consumer incomes from rising inflation. Growth areas include smartphones, where a surge in demand has been fuelled by lower prices, and flatscreen TV sets, which now comprise more than two-thirds of TV set sales.

Headline Expenditure Projections:

- Computer hardware sales: US$1.6bn in 2011 to US$1.8bn in 2012, +13% in US dollar terms.

Forecast in US dollar terms is unchanged, but due to lower prices tablets are expected to provide a strong growth area in 2012. AV sales: US$1.2bn in 2011 to US$1.4bn in 2012, +15% in US READ MORE >
