After five years of consecutive growth electronics output declined by 8.1% following the COVID outbreak but is forecast to post a recovery in 2021 with growth of 3.2%. The French electronics is dominated by the production of fixed and wireless communications, the two product groups accounting for 20.2% of total output in 2020, down from around 37% at the height of the boom in 2000. The country is also a leading producer of radar, navigation and defence electronics the sector accounting for 27.1% of total output in 2020. The impact of COVID-19 on the French defence sector has been less pronounced than commercial aviation. This is primarily due to the nature of defence programmes where budgets were allocated prior to the pandemic and many projects are critical to national defence. In the longer-term however, defence contractors are expected to see slowing demand as national governments seek to reduce deficits and control expenses. In contrast, the pandemic has had a devastating effect on the commercial airline industry. The collapse in international passenger traffic has already led to Airbus to lower airline production which will have a corresponding short- to potentially medium-term impact on the supply chain as the pandemic continues to limit air travel in 2021. The production of computer equipment has declined year on year since 2000 a trend which is expected to continue. By the end of 2021, output is forecast to account for 2.5% of total electronics output down from 17.6% in 2000 the sector experiencing declines of 3.1% in 2019, 7.7% in 2020 and a forecasted 4.0% in 2021. Electronic component production, despite the recent closure of a number of manufacturing plants, accounted for 26.2% of electronics production in 2020. The production of semiconductor and passive components segments both declined in 2020 but are both forecast to rebound in 2021. The current global shortage of semiconductors is expected to see increased investment in the sector which is expected to boost output.
