The Volume 2 of the Yearbook of World Electronics Data 2016 tracks developments in the electronics industry for 16 countries with emphasis on the Americas, Japan and the Asia Pacific. Signs that the growth within the global electronics industry had started to gain momentum has once again been pushed back. Uncertainties surrounding the global economy, a more prolonged downturn in the PC market and slower growth for smartphones in particular in mature geographies are some of the key factors which have revised down the outlook for 2016. As we look forward the anticipated improvement in the global economy should filter through and lead to growth in 2017, which then should gradually accelerate over the period to 2019, with in general stronger growth in the emerging markets. Connectivity is expected to drive growth as the roll-out of new applications under the umbrella of the "Internet of Things" offset lower growth for smartphones.
