As desktop computers are quickly decreasing in popularity, the Canadian Computer Peripheral Manufacturing industry in Canada experienced sharp declines in revenue over the five years to 2017. However, the industry has experienced consistent demand from the corporate sector. The industry's focus has shifted in favor of hard disk drives and monitors, which have both declined rapidly in price. As a result, demand from individual consumers for these items has increased steadily. Rapid technological development is encouraging more entrants into the industry. However, the cost savings associated with outsourcing tasks to low-wage countries has benefited major companies but has also hurt the domestic market for peripheral manufacturing. Over the five years to 2022, the industry revenue is expected to decrease slightly.
This industry includes companies that manufacture peripheral equipment for computers such as monitors, keyboards, mice, printers, scanners and terminals. Manufacturers of networking equipment (e.g. routers and modems) are not included in this report (see IBISWorld report 33421CA, Telecommunication Networking Equipment Manufacturing in Canada).
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.
