Computer Hardware
Published on October 2008

                                                                                                            Report Summary




The UK market for computer hardware, defined by Key Note as comprising PCs, servers and peripherals/add-ons, was worth an
estimated £12.29bn at end-user prices in 2007, a 2.1% increase on the figure for 2006. Overall, the market has increased in value by
9.9% since 2003.




The market experienced mixed fortunes between 2003 and 2007. Servers and portable PCs showed the strongest growth rates over
the period. Blade servers and low-cost volume servers have made big inroads into the market. Vendors are now focusing on small
and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), with a range of new servers priced within easy grasp of this market.




The success of portable computers has been attributed to several factors, including the downward spiral in prices that is so
characteristic of this industry. The sector has been given an added boost by the quest among both consumers and business users to
become more mobile in their computing and communications. PC manufacturers are evolving new ranges of `ultraportable' computers
to satisfy this demand for mobility.




The growth in sales of portables has been at the expense of desktop computers, sales of which are now in decline. Modern portables
are able to match desktop computers in terms of performance and they will continue to replace desktops for both business and home
users in the future.




Peripherals/add-ons include printers, networking equipment and storage devices. Although printers (particularly multifunction devices
[MFDs]) and flat-screen monitors experienced significant sales growth in the early part of the review period, falling prices have
resulted in negative value growth in more recent years. Sales of networking equipment and storage devices have, however, increased
steadily as both businesses and consumers have expanded their use of the Internet and wireless computing.




Falling prices have put pressure on vendors and have forced them to reduce their margins. They have also fuelled a continuing trend
towards mergers and acquisitions among the large international computer-hardware firms, since strong advantages are offered by
economies of scale. Many of the UK's computer-hardware firms are subsidiaries of US and Japanese companies. However, local and
regional UK suppliers also compete in niche markets.

The outlook is for negligible growth in the UK market for computer hardware in 2008 and negative growth in 2009 as the economy
experiences a downturn. A slow recovery will follow between 2010 and 2012 as the economic cycle returns to a more buoyant period.
