Yearbook of World Electronics Data Volume 1 2017 West Europe

In Euro’s the production of electronic equipment in Western Europe declined by a forecasted 1.6% in 2016 to Euro 114.6 billion, down from growth of 3.9% in the prior year and 0.3% in 2014. The top line figures however, mask the impact of exchange rates. In constant 2015 exchange rates growth in 2016 would have been 0.2%.

The predicted upturn in the global economy combined with and with the prospects of positive growth across the EU should boost demand in 2017 with growth gaining momentum during the year. Based on current indicators we are forecasting growth in electronic equipment output of 1.6% in 2017 which then should accelerate to 2.3% in 2018 and 2.7% in 2019 before easing to 2.5% in 2020. However, as highlighted downside risks remain which could dampen growth in 2017 and 2018.

The industrial segment which accounted for an estimated 58% of electronics equipment output in 2016 will be the main driver of growth over the period to 2020, when it will account 60% of the total. After a modest increase of 0.1% in 2015, output in the communications sector declined by a forecasted 3.1% in 2016  (-0.7% in constant exchange rates). Over the period to 2020 the production of communications equipment is expected to benefit from increased defence spending and the opportunities arising from the Internet of Things and the next generation of wireless technologies. Computer output will continue to decline over the forecast period as will the production of video and audio equipment.

The move to manufacture in the region of consumption is a growing trend across the global electronics industry although in Europe to reduce costs they are increasingly looking to utilise either their own facilities or those of electronic manufacturing service provider in Central and Eastern Europe. Companies looking to re-shore production back to Europe from Asia are also expected to look at sites in CEE rather than Western Europe. 

Germany accounted for 32% of electronics equipment output in 2016 and its overall share is expected to edge up over the period to 2020. France and the UK which are traditionally strong in communications will like the majority of countries benefit from the growth in the industrial segment. The restructuring of the communications sector in the Nordic countries, and in particular Finland and Sweden is on-going but the impact should fade over the period to 2020 as recent reorganisations are completed.

In 2015, the production of electronic components in Western Europe amounted to Euro 36.0 billion, 23.6% of overall electronics production, output increased by 3.8% during the year on the back of rising equipment production.

Of the total in 2015, active components accounted for 54%, passive 36% and other 10% while Germany accounted for the largest share of production at 37%, followed by France 13%, Italy 10% and the UK 8%.

Electronic component production is forecast to increase by 0.3% in 2016 (1.4% at constant exchange rates) and by a further 2.1% in 2017 as demand in the global semiconductor strengthens. The move to utilise foundries, which are predominantly in Asia, will impact the growth in IC output over the period to 2020, in particular in the latest technologies. There a number of fabless semiconductor companies in Western Europe while the region remains a centre for research and design.
