Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Computer and Peripheral Equipment Manufacturing industry is highly competitive, which is displayed by falling selling prices and low profit margins. Demand for computers and peripheral equipment has been promoted by cheap prices and the release of new and enhanced products, computer software and applications. However, computer and peripheral equipment manufacturing has largely shifted to countries that have access to low-cost labour and more efficient supply chains, and the number of firms operating in the United Kingdom has consequently fallen.

The industry is expected to generate revenue of £1 billion in 2016-17, down 2.2% on the previous year. Industry revenue is forecast to contract at a compound annual rate of 3.3%... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

The Computer and Peripheral Equipment Manufacturing industry is considered to be in the decline phase of its life cycle. Industry value added is expected to decrease at a compound annual rate of 3.7% over the 10 years through 2021-22. In comparison, GDP is forecast to increase at a compound annual rate of 2.3%. Therefore, industry value added is expected to significantly underperform the wider economy.

Industry value added is expected to decline due to falling industry revenue, competitive pressure on prices and margins, and growth in imported components and end products. Manufacturers based in the United Kingdom are disadvantaged by relatively high cost structures.
