Computer Peripheral Manufacturing in the US
Over the five years to 2019, revenue for the Computer Peripheral Manufacturing industry is expected to fall. Some of this loss can be attributed to the offshoring of manufacturing activities to countries with less regulation and lower labor costs. However, much of the industry's decline can be attributed to reduced demand. Consumers have increasingly substituted physical storage for cloud-based technologies, while tablets and laptops, which require less peripheral equipment, have become more popular. Over the next five years, the shift from desktop computers to mobile devices and tablets is expected to continue, further reducing demand for peripheral equipment and physical storage. High labor costs are expected to exacerbate industry decline by lowering domestic manufacturers' ability to compete with low-cost imports. Consequently, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to continue to fall.
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).
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.
