Global Electronics Production & Market Database

Global Electronics Production & Market Database 1995-2012

RER, Date of Publication: Dec 12, 2012

Global Electronics Producton & Market Database gives a unique insight into the development of the electronics industry since 1995. The database not only highlights the changes which have impacted the industry but provides the flexibility to allow you to quickly format the data to suit your specific requirements, from a global to regional/country level and for 13 major product groups. Through the combinaton of both historical and forecasted data the database allows the user to monitor trends across the global industry. For Western Europe, the prospects of slower consumer spending and reduced investment comes at a tme when the electronics industry is already facing significant pressure as it realigns its manufacturing base to the full impacts of a global market. In 1995, Western Europe accounted for 21% of global electronics producton. By 2000, this had fallen to 18% and in 2011 was estmated to be around 11% as manufacturers looked to reduce costs by moving volume producton from high‐cost to low‐cost locatons.

Looking at the broader European level the share of electronics producton accounted for by Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) will increase throughout the period to 2015. In 2005, CEE accounted for just under 15% of overall electronics output. By 2015, the report forecasts that the total will be approaching 25%. By segment industrial will increase its share of the total although this will remain below 10% by 2015. In contrast, CEE will account for nearly 50% of computng producton and over 80% for consumer (over 90% for consumer video).

The Americas account for around 21% of global electronics output in 2011; the region is dominated by the USA the world's second largest producer, and largest market for, electronic equipment and components. Mexico too remains an important producton centre, even in the face of increasing competton from China. Excluding Japan, China now dominates the Asian electronics industry and has an increasingly important role globally, China the major producing country with a share of around 29% in 2011. Despite rising labour costs China is stll seen as the preferred locaton for overseas companies, while local manufacturers ramp up producton to meet global demand and the surging domestc market. Nevertheless, other Asian countries do have significant electronics industries with South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore all playing an important role within the global market. India, with its vast domestc market, will provide significant market opportunites although the required investment in infrastructure will be pivotal to the growth of the industry.

Similar to the US and countries in Western Europe, Japan is being impacted by the migraton of producton to low‐cost locatons. By the end of 2011, electronics output had fallen by 42% from the peak in 2000 and the country’s share of global electronics output to 10% down from 26% in 1995.
