The study draws on extensive primary and secondary research covering 83 organisations involved in the production and distribution of mobile and non-mobile consumer products including manufacturers, mainstream mobile network operators, mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs), specialised retailers of consumer electronics, supermarkets and other types of retailer (namely, department stores, DIY / furniture / home outlets, speciality retailers and variety retailers). Hence, it provides a comprehensive overview of this activity across Chile.
Key features of this publication include:
- quantification of the market value for extended warranties and insurance linked to mobile and non-mobile consumer products: how much is the market likely to have been worth in Chile in 2015, how did it split between white goods, brown goods, grey goods, mobile gadgets and mobile phones, and to what extent did each of these segments grow or decline in value since 2011?
- analysis of extended warranty underwriters and brokers that have established scheme relationships with manufacturers and retailers of white goods, brown goods, grey goods, mobile gadgets and mobile phones, including their unweighted and weighted share of partnerships;
- consideration of the potential for cross-selling stand-alone extended warranty and insurance policies through independent channels that are separate from either manufacturers or retailers: to what extent has this form of distribution developed in Chile and who are the main competitors in this respect?
- forecasts for the value of the market for extended warranties and insurance linked to mobile and non-mobile consumer products up to 2019: assuming no significant changes in the number of manufacturer and retailer schemes, what factors will cause this sector to grow or decline in the next few years?
