The Germany 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 Germany.

In 2015, electronics production rose by 4.0% and followed the prior year’s increase of 2.0% and falls of 3.2% and 5.5% in 2013 and 2012, respectively. In contrast to 2015, electronics output is expected to decline by 0.3% in 2016 but should recover in 2017 with growth forecast at 2.0%. Germany’s electronics industry is dominated by industrial electronics and in particular control and instrumentation. After posting growth of 8.8% in 2015 output, based on data for the first three quarters of the year, control and instrumentation is forecast to increase by 2.3% in 2016 and by a further 3.2% in 2017.  

After three years of declining output the medical sector posted double-digit growth in 2015 on the back of very strong growth in medical imaging equipment but is expected to post a decline of 5.0% in 2016 before recovering in 2017 and then post single-mid-digit growth throughout the period to 2020. The production of communications equipment (including defence) declined by 5.9% in 2015 and based on official figures for the first three-quarters of 2016 is expected to fall by a further 1.7% for the year as a whole. Year on year growth in the production of radar and navigation equipment has helped offset falling output for wireless infrastructure equipment a trend which is expected to continue in 2017. Telecommunications output increased by 1.4% in 2015, the first increase since 2010. However, output declined by 1.5% in 2016 but is expected to stabilise in 2017 and then show low single-digit growth over the period to 2020. Germany’s focus on Industry 4.0 in particular, is expected to support growth in the communications equipment both fixed and wireless, over the period to 2020. Computer production declined by 21.3% in 2015 with significant falls for computers and complete systems and accessories and parts. Based on official production figures for the first three-quarters of the year computer output is forecast to fall by a further 7.2% in 2016 a trend which is expected to continue throughout the period to 2020.
