Electronics output posted a modest decline of 0.4% in 2015 growth in the industrial and computing segments unable to offset by falling output in the core communications segment and in consumer and components. Output increased by a forecasted 1.0% in 2016 and is expected to strengthen to 1.3% in 2017. The computer segment accounted for 7.0% of the total in 2015, production increasing for the second consecutive year a trend which is forecast to have continued in 2016 although growth is expected to ease to 1.0%, down from 4.0% and 8.2% in 2015 and 2014, respectively. Despite the recent recovery it is expected that pressure on costs will result in output declining by around 2.0% in 2017 and then by around 4.0% annually in the period to 2020. Communication and radar, which includes defence related products, accounted for 33% of electronics output in 2015 and declined by 3.5% during the year. Production of radar and navigation equipment accounted for 10.0% of total electronics output in 2015. Production of radar and navigational aids has remained relatively stable in recent years and should benefit over the forecast period by the expected increase in defence and aerospace related spending globally. The production of telecommunications equipment increased by 4.9% in 2015 although after several years of declining output its importance within the UK electronics industry has diminished. Output is expected to increase by 2.0% in both 2016 and 2017 and by the end of the period will account for 2.0% of output down from10% in 2000. Component output accounted for 17.4% of the total in 2015. The production of discrete semiconductors declined by 67% in 2015, in part, due to the decision by manufacturers in the UK to scale back output in the face of competition from lower cost Chinese suppliers. IC production posted double-digit declines in both 2012 and 2013 and then more modest falls in 2014 and 2015 a trend which is forecast to continue over the period to 2020.
