BMI View: We had downgraded our forecasts for the Venezuelan consumer electronics market in our Q4 2015 report to reflect the nature of the macroeconomic crisis the country. We have left our forecasts for the market un changed in our Q1 16 report update. We are now anticipating a modest recovery to take place in the market in 2016 as economic conditions improve. Nevertheless, we are cautious in our forecasts and hold the opinion that if the macroeconomic fundamentals of Venezuela deteriorate over the coming weeks, we will undertake another significant downwards revision of our forecast for our upcoming update.

Our previous downgrade was, however, relatively minor in the context of our pre-existing view for Venezuela to be the underperforming consumer electronics market globally. This view was based on devaluation and the impact on device affordability for local consumers where local wage inflation trails far behind device price inflation. Meanwhile, the push by the government to implement the 'fair price' law in H114, which restricted vendor margins to 30%, means vendors face continued political as well as economic risk factors. The law adds to a hostile business environment and exacerbates existing challenges for vendors, including currency weakness and economic, political and security risks that are weighing on purchasing power and consumer confidence.

Latest Updates & Developments

  • We made downward revisions to our forecasts in the Q415 update to reflect the economic climate of Venezuela. We have not made another downward revision to our forecast in our Q1 2016 report, but we may undertake another downward revision if the conditions remain negative for a longer period of time.

  • We have noted reports of serious shortages of hardware and consumer electronic goods as the local currency has devalued and imports have become a lot more expensive.

  • Many local manufacturers and producers have capitalised on the higher costs of imported goods and may look to this particular time as a unique opportunity.
