In 2014, electronics output in the UK was an estimated 62% lower than the peak in in 2000, the country in comparison with many of its Western European counterparts, being badly affected by the migration of volume production to low cost countries. The industry is heavily orientated towards the production of professional electronic equipment, which accounted for 82% of the industry's output in 2014. Overall, the largest individual categories are communications, control and instrumentation and components. Electronics output posted a modest increase of 0.4% in 2014 and followed a decline of 3.2% and 4.6% in 2013 and 2012, respectively.  The slowdown in the emerging markets is expected to have a negative impact on UK manufacturing resulting in production remaining flat in 2015 but should show a modest increase of 0.9% in 2016. The computer segment accounted for 6.7% of the total in 2014, production increasing for the first time since 2000 during the year. Output is expected to increase by a further 1.0% in 2015 before showing a modest decline of 0.9% in 2016. Communication and radar, which includes defence related products, accounted for 33% of electronics output in 2014 and declined by 0.5% during the year. Production of radar and navigation equipment accounted for 10.7% of total electronics output in 2014.
