We expect to see growth in Russian Consumer Electronics driven by demand for digital lifestyle products such as smartphones, smart TVs and tablets/ultra-thin notebooks. Penetration of these devices still remains low by developed market standards but with local players such as YotaDevices , Explay and FLY beginning to make an impact in the market, we expect strong uptake to continue. However, our outlook has weakened slightly given the unstable domestic economic environment and uncertainty surrounding the situation in Crimea. Indeed, we forecast real GDP growth to slow to 1.0% in 2014, a marked slowdown from the 3.4% outturn in 2012, as the fallout from the Ukraine crisis will worsen the cyclical downturn . We still expect the consumer electronics market to record growth every year in our forecast period to 2018, but there is increased downside. We now expect spending to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 2.9% 2014-2018, to reach a value of USD 35.446bn in 2018.

AV Sales: USD9.8bn in 2013 to USD10.2bn in 2014, +5.0% in US dollar terms. After the market contracted in 2012 as digital camera volumes declined, we expect the market to rebound as the camera market stabilises, and TV and games console spending drive growth.

Handset Sales: USD8.5bn in 2013 to USD9.0bn in 2014, +3.2% in US dollar terms. The increased share of smartphones in the overall handset sales mix will drive growth, but with low-cost Android devices seeing the fastest growth market value increases will temper over the medium term after a boom in 2012 and 2013.
