The Swedish Electronics Industry Report provides essential market intelligence for all sizes of company from small enterprises to major global groups and for financial/management consultancies, government agencies and academia requiring a reliable overview of the electronics industry in Sweden.
In 2017, electronics output fell by 5.0% a greater than expected decline in the control and instrumentation sector and the on-going weakness in the communications segment the main contributing factors. Output however stabilised in 2018, growth in control and instrumentation and the first increase in communications and radar output since 2011, helping increase electronics production by a modest 0.9%. Electronics output is expected to be flat in 2019 although a more pronounced deterioration in the global economy could result in more substantial decline.
The Swedish electronics industry remains centred on the production of fixed and wireless infrastructure equipment the two sectors accounting for 44.6% of electronics output in 2017. Output however declined for the sixth successive year falling by 9.2% a trend which is expected to continue with output falling by an estimated 2.8% in 2018 and by a forecasted 2.6% in 2019. Production of wireless communications equipment declined by 9.6% in 2017, an estimated 1.5% in 2018 and is forecast to fall by a further 1.2% in 2019. Telecommunications output will follow a similar trend with output declining by an estimated 8.7% in 2017, by an estimated 4.0% in 2018 and is forecast to fall by a further 4.0% in 2019. Telecommunications accounted for 22.8% of electronics output in 2017 and wireless communications (excluding radar and navigation) 21.8%.
Radar and navigation accounted for 10.2% of electronics output in 2017, the sector increasing by 4.3% during the year. Growth however, is expected to increase by 10% in 2018 and then by a further 7.0% in 2019. The other predominant sectors are control and instrumentation with a 27.5% share in 2017, up from 7.5% in 2000, and components with a 12.2% share.
Computer equipment accounted for only 1.4% of the total, while consumer production was negligible. In 2017, the control and instrumentation segment posted a 5.6% decline in output although this was primarily due to a decline in the production of industrial and process control on the back of a sharp fall in exports during the year. Growth recovered in 2018 with growth estimated at 2.5% but is forecast to ease to 1.5% in 2019.
