BMI View:

We project that Israeli consumer electronics spending will grow by about 5% in US dollar terms in 2012 to US$3.5bn, with our previous forecast being downwardly adjusted owing to a deteriorating economic outlook. In Q112, consumer spending continued to slow, after spending on durable goods such as PCs and TV sets showed signs of falling off in 2011. However, sales of mobile phones should receive a boost from a new law that liberalises mobile phone import. Consumer spending should also be supported by stimulatory fiscal spending, as well as falling unemployment and low inflation and interest rates. Across our five-year forecast period, a growing population and rising computer and internet penetration will drive consumer electronics demand growth, along with new technologies and products such as tablets, smartphones, higher capability netbooks and 3D TV sets.

Headline Expenditure Projections:

- Computer Hardware Sales: US$2.5bn in 2011 to US$2.6bn in 2012, 3%-plus in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar terms downwardly revised owing to macroeconomic factors, but Israeli businesses are investing more to facilitate expansion and development.
