The Computer Peripheral Manufacturing industry includes manufacturers of peripheral equipment for computers such as monitors, terminals, mice and printers. While recent trends point to the decline of the desktop computer, the market for computer peripherals has not shut down entirely. Over the five years to 2017, IBISWorld expects revenue for the industry to fall. Some of this loss can be attributed to the offshoring of manufacturing activities to countries that have lower regulatory and labor regulations. Due to these factors, manufacturers have engaged in merger and acquisition activity to drive demand. In doing so, large industry players have been able to shift their focus from traditional peripherals to solid-state drives, HD glossy displays and enterprise data solutions. As the market shifts from desktop computers toward mobile devices and tablets, demand for computer peripherals such as mice, keyboards and printers is expected to fall. IBISWorld projects industry revenue will fall over the five years to 2022.
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 33421, Telecommunication Networking Equipment 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.
