However, a slowdown in consumption growth due to increases in the cost of living in 2013 squeezed spending in the consumer electronics market. Pressure on prices, in market segments such as TV sets and handsets, will lead vendors to focus on innovative higher margin new products. However we expect Israel to outperform the region, with strong government demand for computers and increasing use of smartphones, tablets and hybrids among consumer maintaining a five-year CAGR of 6.6% for overall market growth.

Key Trends & Developments

There has been a significant shift in the Israeli PC market in recent years as sales of desktops and notebooks have come under pressure from tablets, as well as being squeezed by macroeconomic conditions. Apple leads the local tablet market through its popular iPad range; however the market deepened in 2012 with the arrival of lower-cost Android devices offering a comparable user experience. This added to pressure on vendors of more traditional form factors. However the launch of Microsoft's Windows 8 in October 2012 marked a shift for Microsoft partner vendors by introducing touch functionality. This has seen a range of tablets and hybrids/convertibles produced which are expected to only take a small share of total tablet and notebook sales in 2013, but to become more significant over the medium term by offering multiple-use cases.
