Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2014 -- Economic challenges such as rapid inflation, the January 2014 devaluation of the peso and technical debt default in Q214 negatively impact our outlook for the Argentinean consumer electronics market in 2014. In particular, high inflation, slowing real wage growth, and increasing unemployment levels are likely to keep private consumption subdued throughout the year and we forecast the consumer electronics market to detract in US dollar terms . Despite this bleak short-term outlook, w e believe Argentina has very strong potential for growth over the medium term with strong mobile handset demand matched by increased availability of devices, helping the markets for smartphones, as well as flat screen TVs and tablet computers. Consumer sentiment has improved since the drop-off following the January devaluation, which is in line with our view that domestic factors are unlikely to prompt another devaluation. We expect to see a recovery in 2015, as slower inflation and stronger real growth should help the market for consumer electronics rebound.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: USD2.4bn in 2013 to USD1.9bn in 2014, a contraction of 21.6%. The computer hardware market is vulnerable to the devaluation of the peso in January 2014, including local supply due to a reliance on imported components.

AV Sales : USD2.3bn in 2013 to USD2.2bn in 2014, a contraction of 3.4%. Demand will be hit by devaluation but on a positive note HD and Smart TVs will continue to gain traction as the networks needed to support this growth are rolled out.

Handset Sales : USD1.5bn in 2013 to USD1.4bn in 2014, a contraction of 7.9%. Beyond a short-term hit from currency devaluation smartphones will grow at the fastest rate, accounting for around 70% of volume sales by the end of our forecast period.
