Hungary’s consumer electronics devices market, defined as the addressable market for computingdevices, mobile handsets and video, audio and gaming products, is projected at US$2.4bn in 2012.Revenues growth remained sluggish in 2011 due to consumer deleveraging, but spending is expected toincrease at a CAGR of 6.0% to US$3.0bn by 2016. The main drivers include the growing popularity ofdigital lifestyle products such as LCD TV sets and notebook computers, as well as lower prices and moreflexible terms. .

The Hungarian consumer faces yet another tough year in 2012, as fiscal austerity, tighter creditconditions, weakening confidence, a still-large overhang of debt and elevated unemployment level allpose major challenges to households. The effect of the economic crisis has led to profitability crises forseveral Hungarian market consumer electronics retailers, with leader ElectroWorld requestingbankruptcy protection in 2011. The decision by the government to allow foreign currency mortgageholders to fix their interest payments to a more manageable exchange rate is a broadly positivedevelopment for consumption. However, the effects are unlikely to be felt until unemployment and creditconditions demonstrate a more concerted improvement.

Despite this, rising incomes, product innovation and favourable social and demographic trends shouldsupport a long-term growth trajectory for consumer electronics spending. Mobile telecoms penetration inHungary remains much lower than in neighbouring markets, while digital television subscriptions nowaccount for a majority of Hungary’s nearly 3mn TV subscribers.
