West European Electronics Industry Report

Despite the improvement in the final months of the year output for the West European electronics industry in 2013 is estimated to have declined by 3.1% before showing modest growth of 1.1% in 2014. The outlook however, has significant downside risks. If the situation in the Crimea escalates it could delay the recovery in the European economy as well as lower the outlook globally. China’s economy has also slowed markedly in the first two months of the year, with growth in investment, retail sales and factory output all falling to multi-year lows, a surprisingly weak performance that raises the possibility of a slowdown in European exports to the world’s second largest economy.

In the period 2015 to 2017, production of electronics equipment, is forecast to show low single-digit growth with the underlying trends of higher growth in the industrial and communications segments being offset by declining output in the computing and consumer segments. The move to re-shore production back to Europe is a growing trend although manufacturers may opt to look at lower cost facilities in Central and Eastern Europe rather than re-locate to sites in Western Europe.
