The market recovery will be slow and measured, with 2014 showing growth of just 3.7% on 2009. New technologies will boost the market, but will also push spend away from retail towards contract purchasing. Moreover, a weak housing market, low confidence and squeezed disposable income will drag on the sector.
The market is becoming more competitive, with new entrant Best Buy and others like John Lewis aiming to expand. Non-specialists, such as the grocers and online players, are becoming increasingly significant.
Brown goods will benefit from 3D technology and suitability as low price treats. However, other sub-categories, such as information processing products, are in terminal decline, with digital convergence also serving to reduce volume of product sold.
