Industry revenue has declined over the five years to 2019 despite growing consumer spending, an increase in private investment in computers and software and an increasing rate of computer ownership among households. The number of industry enterprises has declined over the past five years. The Computer Stores industry suffers from a high level of external competition from retail outlets that are more popular among consumers.
