India Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2014 - New Report Available

LogoBMI projects that Indian consumer electronics spending will grow by about 16% in US dollar terms in 2014 to US$43.4bn, fuelled by rising incomes, growing affordability, and the fact that 45% of India's population is under 25.

Meanwhile, sales of smartphones - including Apple's iPhone - are finally taking off. Spending on consumer electronics devices is projected to grow at an overall CAGR of 14% through to the end of our five-year forecast to 2018, with the key segments including low-cost mobile handsets, colour TV sets, set-top boxes and notebook computers. Much of the growth during our forecast period will be driven by growing demand from India's underpenetrated rural areas. However, there are concerns a new import tax on handsets priced at above 2,000 rupees could constrain demand in this key product category.
