After a slight value recovery in 2016, consumer electronics reverted to decline in 2017. High penetration rates among households for various products and rising price tags brought about by a weaker euro were the two major hindrances in 2017. In addition, a prevailing low interest rate was more conducive to longer-term investments, notably housing and vehicles, rather than consumer spending on electronics in the year. Thus, both volume and value sales contracted in 2017.

Consumer electronics sales explode

According to INSEE, the French statistic office, the proportion of the French household budget spent on electronics and communication goods increased significantly over the last 15 years. This was made possible by a decline in spending on food and clothing and an increasing level of household debt.

Consumer electronics becoming more mobile

Portable consumer electronics became increasingly popular with an ever more mobile population. New consumer needs and behaviours emerged and favoured the boom of mobile technologies. The success of mobile phones, based on the ease remaining in contact at all times, slowly spread to other products, such as portable computers and media players. Being able to do everything everywhere and not only at home drove the whole market and in 2006 portable consumer electronics accounted for more than half of both volume and value sales.

Market driven by product diversity, innovation and falling prices

The emergence of new products and the growing number of innovative products developed to meet consumer needs attracted early adopters of new technologies. The development of the market with massive communication campaigns led to a decline in retail prices, which made consumer electronics accessible to the mass market. The French market is still in growing relatively rapidly except for mobile phones, where growth is now slowing as market penetration reached 75%.

Distribution channels remain diverse

Many players compete in the French retail market including specialist multiples and hypermarkets. But the development of the internet and improvements in payment security modified the purchasing decision process as well as the structure of the retail market. The share internet sales grew rapidly to the detriment of independent specialists and consumer electronics manufacturers are now increasingly competing with their retailers.

Philips' unique European presence among Asian manufacturers

Philips is almost the only large European player left in the French market even if Nokia maintains a strong presence in the mobile phone market. French manufacturers are slowly disappearing as foreign manufacturers purchase their activity, while maintaining their well-recognised brand names. Korean manufacturers have been the most successful in recent years, to the detriment of American and other Asian, predominantly Japanese, manufacturers. Most of these manufacturers were able to capitalise on the digital technology to offer a wide range of products across different subsectors.

Future subject to competition between emerging standards

The future remains bright even if only in the short term, as competition between emerging standards could slow market development. This is the case for wireless communication with competition between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi standards and the future DVD system between HD-DVD and Blue-Ray standards. The same trend prevails in the MP3 players where hard drive and flash memory data storage compete for the future domination of mobile applications.
