U.S. Consumer Electronics Sales & Forecasts (1 Year and 5 Year) More Info
One of the many benefits CEA provides to its membership is the five year U.S. shipment forecasts, which you may have seen highlights of in various CEA materials or presentations.
The quality and credibility of CEA's industry forecasts greatly depend on member involvement. Participate in the creation of this unique piece and receive research that benefits the industry as a whole.
What are the forecasts?
The CE Industry Forecast, produced twice per year, reveals the size and growth of a wide array of electronics products, including home entertainment, home information, communications, electronic gaming, portable entertainment, and in-vehicle technologies along with their corresponding accessories.
How does this involve me and my company?
CEA's forecasts are developed using a consensus methodology. As the name implies, CEA analysts produce the forecasts using direct input from the membership, making the results an accurate reflection of the industry's own viewpoints. The information we require for the forecasts is at the total industry level, rather than at a company level.
What's the benefit to me?
The forecasts are an insightful tool for strategic planning. Participants in the forecasting process are eligible to receive the entire results FREE of charge -- a $6,500 value.
