Russian market exceeds US$5.64 billion in first quarter

by Stuart Wilson, Thursday 25 May 2017

Research house GfK’s most recent TEMAX analysis of the ICT, telecoms and consumer electronics market in Russia indicates that the total market value hit US$5.64 billion in the first quarter of 2017. Sales in the telecoms segment climbed 9.7% year-on-year in local currency terms to hit US$1.7 billion.

GfK identified several growing categories including portable speakers and action cameras in the consumer electronics segment. In photography, GfK highlighted a move towards professional products and an increase in online purchasing. More than 30% of the value of the photography category in Russia is now accounted for by online sales.

In the technology space, falling price points meant that while volumes were up 5% year-on-year driven by demand for laptops desktops and monitors, the value of the category declined.

In the telecoms segment GfK stated: “The demand growth is observed mainly in the regions outside Moscow and Central region. However, even in the mature market, smartwatches and accessories are supporting a positive turnover trend.”

GfK will deliver a keynote speech, a breakfast briefing and two workshop sessions at DISTREE Russia 2017 next month, providing deep insight into consumer tech trends in the Russian market.

GfK’s TEMAX research measures the size of the ‘technical consumer goods’ market, which includes the following product categories: consumer electronics; photo; major domestic appliances; small domestic appliances; IT; telecoms, office equipment and consumables.
