Quick Overview
Argentina’s domestic consumer electronics devices market, defined as the addressable market forcomputing devices, mobile handsets and AV products, is projected at US$4.7bn in 2011. The marketpicked up in 2010 following a sharp deceleration the previous year, and spending is expected to grow at aCAGR of 8.0% to US$6.3bn by 2015, driven by demand for LCD TV sets, notebook computers, digitalcameras and other key products, and also by rising incomes and greater credit availability.The trading environment for vendors and retailers remains mixed however, despite a strong recovery inprivate consumption growth in early 2010.
