Vietnam consumer tech growth continues

by Stuart Wilson, Wednesday 4 October 2017

Research house GfK’s latest analysis of the ICT, telecoms and consumer electronics market in Vietnam indicates that the total market value grew 13.2% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2017 to hit US$2.12 billion. The strong growth was driven by sales increases in six of the seven segments that GfK tracks. Telecoms sales were up 18.3% year-on-year at US$1.07 billion.

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

Consumer electronics sales jumped 11.3% year-on-year to US$350m, driven by strong growth in the TV category. IT spend rose 2.2% to US$250m in the second quarter.

GfK stated: “[In IT] the sales of the largest segment – mobile computing - rocketed in the second quarter of 2017, which led to the overall growth of IT sector compared to the second quarter of 2016.”

“[In telecommunications] the sector’s largest segment – smart and mobile phones – remarkably grew by well above the sectoral average. Meanwhile, the phablets segment boosted sales year-on-year in the second quarter of 2017,” GfK continued.
