    The Irish opportunity: The value of a focussed strategy

    Despite being close together geographically the Irish and UK markets vary in a number of ways, and it is important to consider these intricate differences when pulling together a strategy for the Irish market. Key changes in the market, as well as the buoyancy of the core computing categories in 2015, have ensured that increased focus is being given to Ireland by manufacturers and retailers alike.

    Gaming a silver lining for IT

    The second quarter of 2016 saw continued challenges to the retail Information Technology (IT) market. The overall market declined in value by 6% compared with the same period of 2015. Both traditional computing and tablets contributed significantly to this drop, and areas such as storage and networking that had previously been strong also slipped into decline. However, some areas of IT, many associated with PC gaming products, provide something of a silver lining.

    Euro 2016 success for TV

    Major sporting events often provide an injection of life to the TV market, and this summer proved no exception. Despite the misplaced optimism in England’s chance of Euro 2016 glory, the presence of three home nations – England, Northern Ireland and Wales – brought a much-needed boost to TV sales after a relatively muted start to the year. Our Point-of-Sales data observed year-on-year growth for March, April, May, and June, with April’s growth being particularly impressive given that Easter fell in this month the previous year.
