Depreciation and product diffusion cycles (tablets, LED/LCD TV sets and smartphones) have resulted in significant volatility in the Australian consumer electronics market - and depreciation is forecast to result in another contraction in 2016. The market should however stabilise over the medium term as the economy stabilises and product categories return to volume growth trajectories primarily determined by replacement sales. We expect US dollar growth to return from 2017-2019 and offset the decline in 2016, with a CAGR of 0.2% forecast for 2015-2019 to USD11.1bn in 2019. There will however be select opportunities for faster growth: for instance, hybrid notebooks and high specification tablets, Ultra-HD TV sets, and wearable devices. This also downside though, with the potential for a hard landing in China a threat to our core scenario for a more supportive economic environment in Australia 2017-2019.

Latest Updates And Industry Developments
- Computer Hardware Sales: USD4.3bn in 2016 to USD4.7bn in 2019. Recovery expected after sharp downturn in tablet market in 2015, with opportunities identified in the premium device market over the medium term despite overall market maturity, but growth over 2017-2019 will be insufficient to offset contraction in 2016.

- AV Sales: USD2.0bn in 2014 to USD2.2bn in 2019. After steep declines 2012-2015 market will grow, albeit slowly, as TV set and digital camera volumes stabilise, with upside as Ultra-HD TV set sales grow.

- Handset Sales: USD3.9bn in 2016 to USD4.2bn in 2019. We expect the handset market to be the outperforming segment of the consumer electronics market, sustained by the strength of demand for flagship smartphones, with upside potential from wearable devices.
