CONSUMER GOODS

LIVE WITH CONFIDENCE

The consumer market for electrical and electronics products is affected by a diverse range of
dynamics, all of which highlight complex compliance requirements for domestic items sold around
the world such as televisions, tablets and power tools.

These include:

  • New selling markets – As the more mature markets of USA and Europe become increasingly aturated and experience low-digit growth rates, there is a race to access new and emerging markets around the world.
  • New sourcing markets – Accelerated by a growth in tariffs, not least the China-USA trade war,
    there has been a fast shift away from the manufacturing hotbed of China to South Asia, South
    East Asia, Eastern Europe and Central America.
  • Integration of technology - From wireless technology to use of artificial intelligence (AI) and
    mixed reality (MR), consumer electronics and electricals suppliers need to embrace new
    developments to remain competitive.
  • Online growth – As the growth in online sales continues to outstrip growth in physical stores,
    it is critical to reduce the significant cost of returns due to poor quality or mismatched product
    experiences.
