In 2016, electronics production rose by 0.1% and followed the prior year’s increase of 4.8%. In contrast to 2016, electronics output increased by a forecasted 3.0% in 2017 and by a further 3.4% in 2018. Germany’s electronics industry is dominated by industrial electronics and in particular control and instrumentation. After posting growth of 2.1% in 2016 output, based on data for the first three quarters of the year, control and instrumentation is forecast to increase by 5.0% in 2017 and by a further 4.2% in 2018. After three years of declining output the medical sector posted double-digit growth in 2015 on the back of very strong growth in medical imaging equipment but posted a decline of 2.2% in 2016 and by a further 5.0% in 2017. Output is expected to recover in 2018 and then gradually accelerate over the period to 2021. In the medium to longer-term growth could be impacted as companies look to relocate manufacturing to the emerging markets. The production of radio communications equipment (including defence) increased by 0.8% in 2016 and based on official figures for the first three quarters of 2017 is expected to decline 3.0% for the year as a whole. Production is expected to recover in 2018, output increasing by 2.0%. Telecommunications output increased by 5.1% in 2016, the second consecutive year of growth. Production is expected to ease in 2017 and post a modest increase of 0.5% before rebounding in 2018 with growth forecast at 2.2%. Germany’s focus on Industry 4.0 in particular, is expected to support growth in the communications equipment both fixed and wireless, over the period to 2021. Computer production declined by 21.3% in 2015 and by a further 3.9% in 2016. Based on official production figures for the first three quarters of the year computer output is forecast to increase by 2.0% in 2017 and by a further 1.8% in 2018. However, the long-term trend is for output to steadily edge down over the period to 2021.
