BMI View: Indonesia's underlying economic growth story will be supportive of consumer electronics market expansion over the medium term and make it a regional outperformer during our forecast period to 2018. Additional trends will support growth, for instance investment by telecoms operators in wireline and wireless data networks and the declining price of devices in key categories such as tablets and smartphones due to competition between local and Chinese vendors in the Android ecosystem. This trend should see rapidly rising penetration in key product categories. Overall market growth will see the market reach US$16.6bn in 2018, representing a compound annual growth rate of 8.5%. However, there is downside risk to this bullish outlook, with the depreciation of the rupiah and shifting global sentiment to emerging markets in early 2014 potentially disruptive to the existing growth trajectory.
Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer Hardware Sales: US$4.1bn in 2014 to US$7bn in 2018, CAGR of 10.5% 2014-2018. Due to low penetration we expect growth in notebook volumes, contrasting with the developed market trend, but nonetheless it will be tablets that outperform with unit growth CAGR of 23.4% to reach over 10.4mn units in 2018.
AV S ales: rising from US$2.4bn in 2014 to US$3.2bn in 2018, CAGR of 8% 2014-2018. The increasing share of sales going to flat-screen TVs will drive increases in market value, offsetting the squeeze on audio devices and digital cameras from the rise of multi-functional smartphones.
Handset S ales: rising from US$5bn in 2014 to US$6.4bn in 2018, a CAGR of 6.7% 2014-2018. Overall market growth will plateau due to the high penetration of mobile devices, however with an increasing share of sales attributable to smartphones the average selling price of devices will increase.
