Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2013 -- BMI View: We estimate that Singapore's consumer electronics spending grew by about 5% in US dollar terms in 2012 to US$4.2bn. Strong sales of smartphones in 2011 underlined the opportunity for high-end product innovation to drive revenue growth in the mature Singaporean market. In the AV category, digital broadcasting migration will create a market for digital converters based on the DVB2 standard. There are a number of other key growth areas, such as 3G phones, DSLR cameras, 3D TV sets, Blu-ray DVD players, tablets and high-end notebooks. However, some other product groups such as Plasma TV sets and compact digital cameras are experiencing relatively flat growth.

Key Trends & Developments
The migration of Singapore's free-to-air channels to a digital platform, due to take place in 2013, will create a market for digital converters for those 40% of TV households that do not currently subscribe to pay TV services. However, most households already have flat-screen TV sets. Vendors will therefore play to Singaporean consumers' enthusiasm for new technologies with releases of LED, 3D and internet-enabled TV sets. An expected transition to high-definition broadcasting over the next few years will also provide consumers with a further incentive to upgrade for a better viewing experience.
As most Singapore households already have flat-screen TV sets, vendors will play to Singaporean consumers' enthusiasm for new technologies with releases of LED, 3D and internet-enabled TV sets. Demand for larger and thinner screens is now the main driver of growth, as consumers seek a higher quality viewing experience. A trend for households purchasing multiple sets will stimulate sales, as will new technologies such as 3D TV sets.
