Computer Manufacturing in the US
Revenue for the US Computer Manufacturing industry has increased over the past five years as the domestic economy has continued to grow. High import competition and advances in substitute technology have caused fierce price competition in the industry. Yet, the industry has performed well amid continued economic growth. While demand has increased, product homogeneity and strong import penetration has led to fierce competition and falling prices. Computer and peripheral equipment prices are expected to decrease over the next five years, further limiting the industry's revenue prospects moving forward. Operators have experienced competition from substitute products, such as smartphones, which have limited potential gains from rising demand. As these substitute products become increasingly more powerful and user-friendly, they may replace industry products. Nonetheless, demand for computers is anticipated to increase over the next five years.
Companies in this industry manufacture and assemble personal computers, laptops and servers. Operators typically purchase computer components such as motherboards and graphics cards from dedicated manufacturers in other industries, such as the Semiconductor and Circuit Manufacturing industry in the United States (IBISWorld report 33441a). This industry does not include tablet computers or manufacturers of computer monitors, mice, keyboards and printers (33411b).
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.
