Germany’s electronics industry is dominated by industrial electronics and in particular control and instrumentation. After posting growth of 4.4% in 2014 output, based on data for the first three quarters of the year, control and instrumentation is forecast to increase by 5.5% in 2015 and by a further 5.0% in 2016. After three years of declining output the medical sector is forecast to show double-digit growth in 2015 and then post single mid-digit growth throughout the period to 2019. Demand from the emerging markets and higher growth in the mature economies, following several years of lower or frozen budgets, will be the key drivers. Growth in the medium to longer-term however, could be impacted as companies look to relocate manufacturing to the emerging markets. The production of communications equipment (including defence) declined by 5.9% in 2013 and by a further 1.3% in 2014. Based on official figures for the first three quarters of 2015 production of communications and radar equipment is forecast to decline by  2.0%, after the previous year’s modest increase of 0.3%. Year on year growth in the production of radar and navigation equipment has helped offset falling output for wireless infrastructure equipment a trend which is expected to continue in 2016. Computer production, following a modest decline of 1.7% in 2012, declined by 16.7% in 2013 but was flat in 2014, despite a further decline in the production of laptop computers. Based on official production figures for the first three quarters of the year computer output is forecast to fall by 22.0% in 2015 primarily due to a much more pronounced decline in the production of laptop computers.
