Just Released: "Turkey Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2013"

New Consumer Goods research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2013 -- BMI View: BMI has not altered its consumer electronics market forecast for 2013, after the market was affected by tighter consumer credit in 2012. Consumer loan growth continued to show signs of moderation in early 2013 as the economy rebalanced from debt-fuelled consumption to a more balanced model with a greater role for exports.

Consumer electronics sales remain strong in key categories, such as smartphones. Turkcell reported strong growth in revenues in 2012, driven by an increased number of smartphone users on its network. Vodafone and AVEA also reported surges in smartphone numbers. The government's FATIH programme to provide tablets for school students is expected to have a major impact on the market and local and international vendors have become involved.

Despite an expected short-term moderation therefore, Turkey's consumer electronics market is well positioned to outperform most other emerging Europe markets. Demand is expected to increase at 8.4% CAGR through to 2017, driven by the growing popularity of digital lifestyle devices such as flat-panel TV sets, smartphones, notebook computers and digital cameras, as well as rising incomes and lower prices.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: US$5.7bn in 2012 to US$6.3bn in 2013, +10% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar terms unchanged, but upgrades to Windows 8 based machines could provide a boost despite a relatively tepid response to the new OS.

AV Sales: US$1.9bn in 2012 to US$2.1bn in 2013, +7% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar terms unchanged, with digital broadcasting penetration reaching 70% in 2012.

Handset Sales: US$1.8bn in 2012 to US$2.1bn in 2013, +14% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US dollar terms unchanged, with smartphones accounting for about 60% of Turkish handset revenues in 2013.

Risks/Rewards Rating: Turkey's score was 51.1 out of 100. BMI expects consumer IT spending to hold up relatively well, although continued price erosion in the PC and handset market will place pressure on margins. Turkey climbed from fourth to third place (out of eight) in our latest RRR table and the country is in a favourable position to continue to be a regional market outperformer.

Key Trends & Developments

- Turkey's evolution towards digital TV services will help drive AV sales, with video devices such as TV sets, digital cameras and VCR players accounting for more than 80% of demand.
