Computer Manufacturing in Canada
The Computer Manufacturing industry in Canada has been declining as fierce international competition continues to flood the domestic market with low-cost imports. This influx of imports is driven by foreign competitors, primarily from developing economies, which have lower labour and production costs. Competition, combined with product standardization, has exerted strong downward pressure on prices, lowering the industry's revenue from its crucial consumer market segment. Computer manufacturers are expected to experience similar trends moving forward. Price competition will prevent manufacturers from commanding higher margins and achieving growth in the consumer segment. However, anticipated demand from domestic and foreign industrial activity is expected to buoy industry expansion.
This industry manufactures or assembles personal computers, laptops and servers. Operators typically purchase computer components (e.g. motherboards and graphics cards) from dedicated manufacturers in other industries (see IBISWorld report 33441a, Semiconductor and Circuit Manufacturing). This industry does not include tablet computers, nor does it include manufacturers of computer monitors, mice, keyboards and printers (see IBISWorld report 33411b, Computer Peripheral Manufacturing).
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
