Although the past five years have shown occasional glimpses of industry growth, the Electronic and Computer Repair Services industry could benefit from a few repairs of its own. Rapid technological improvement for new tablet computers and mobile phones has prompted many consumers to simply purchase entirely new devices rather than repair their old ones. Although individual consumers do not represent the largest market for industry operators, weakened demand from this segment will present continued difficulties for the industry going forward. With per capita disposable income and broadband usage steadily climbing over the past five years, repair shops must compete more aggressively than ever for individual, corporate and government clients.
Companies in this industry repair or maintain consumer electronic equipment, computers, office machines, communication equipment and other electronic and precision equipment. Establishments in this industry repair other miscellaneous items including microscopes, radar and sonar equipment, televisions, stereos, video recorders, computers, photocopying machines, communications equipment, scientific instruments and medical equipment.
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.
