IT & Office: IT & Office continues the decline

For the 3 quarters of 2016 the decline of the IT and Office Equipment products was close to -7%.

IT: poor results due to significant decline of computing products

Within the IT categories we noticed the following trends during the third quarter of 2016:

  • The computing categories, which include desktop, mobile computers and media tablets, keep losing momentum because of lack of demand and customers turning to higher spending on large screen smartphone products.
  • Categories such as video-projectors and large screen monitors performed excellently.
  • The peripheral categories, especially with products targeted towards the PC gaming community, continued their impressive sales results.

Office Equipment and Consumables: decrease in demand due to increased digitisation

In Q3 2016, the Office Equipment and Consumables sector recorded a decline in turnover by -13%, compared to Q3 2015.

Especially in the cartridges segment, the market demand dropped significantly.

The ever increasing trend of digitisation of documents continues as customers are also less inclined to invest in printing solutions.
