Computer Stores in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Computer Stores in the US

The Computer stores industry comprises establishments that primarily retail computers and peripheral equipment such as keyboards, software, printers, scanners and other accessories. Revenue for the Computer Stores industry has declined despite growing consumer spending, an increase in private investment in computers and software and an increasing rate of computer ownership among households. Industry operators have struggled to compete with external sources of competition, which include computer manufacturers, software developers, e-commerce retailers and large consumer electronics stores. Moving forward, revenue for the Computer Stores industry is anticipated to continue declining. E-commerce sales will continue to draw revenue away from brick-and-mortar retail establishments. Although all physical retailers will see negative effects, the specialized product selection of computer stores in comparison with large consumer electronics retailers, such as BestBuy, will continue to hurt the industry.

This industry includes operators that mainly retail desktops, notebook computers and software, as well as accessories like printers, scanners and keyboards. These goods are generally purchased from domestic and international manufacturers and wholesalers and then sold to end consumers, including households and businesses.

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.
