BMI View: Serbia's economy - and consumer electronics market - recorded weak performance 2013-2015 as a combination of recession and dinar depreciation saw households defer spending and substitute for cheaper models. Our forecast envisages conditions will ease from 2016, and gather pace through the forecast period, including a marked acceleration in GDP and consumption growth alongside dinar appreciation. This provides upside to our forecast, and we believe will support a device spending CAGR of 7.4% over 2016-2020 to USD917mn in 2020. Smartphone upgrades are a key opportunity, but after a greater extent of deferred upgrades in the computer hardware and AV segments 2013-2015, there is potential right across the devices market.

Latest Updates And Industry Developments

  • Computer Hardware Sales: USD249mn in 2016 to USD340mn in 2020, corresponding to a CAGR of 8.1%. Computer hardware segment hit particularly hard 2013-2015, meaning there is considerably pent-up demand alongside low penetration, and as such rising incomes should see growth accelerate from 2017.

  • AV Sales : USD135mn in 2016 to USD175mn in 2020, corresponding to a CAGR of 6.7%. There is also pent-up AV upgrade demand set to be tapped from 2017, but with the digital camera market on a permanently lower trajectory as a result of smartphone cannibalisation the segment will underperform over the medium term.

  • Handset Sales : USD305mn in 2016 to USD402mn in 2020, corresponding to a CAGR of 7.1%. Smartphone upgrade demand will drive the market over the medium term, though as a result of saturation we do envisage a deceleration in the later years of our forecast.
