Yearbook of World Electronics Data - Volume 1 2023 - West Europe

In providing the forecasts for the current study, which were made in June, we have considered developments in the European and global economy. However, significant downside risks remain which could lead to growth in 2023 and 2024 being lower than forecast. We currently expect growth to ease over the course of the second half of 2023 and into 2024 before gaining momentum in the latter half of the year and then accelerate over the remainder of the forecast period. Component shortages have continued to ease over the course of 2023 and are expected to normalise in 2024. The forecasts for 2023 through to 2026 are based on constant 2022 exchange rates and prices and therefore exclude the impact of inflation.

In Euro’s the production of electronic equipment in Western Europe increased by an estimated 5.9% in 2022 to Euro 127.3 billion and compared to growth of 6.4% in the prior year as output rebounded from the pandemic.

Based on current indicators we are forecasting that growth in electronic equipment output in Western Europe will ease to 2.2% in 2023, edge-up to 2.9% in 2024 with growth gaining momentum in the second half of the year then accelerate to 3.9% and 4.1% in 2025 and 2026, respectively.

In 2022, the production of electronic components in Western Europe amounted to Euro 50.0 billion, 28.2% of overall electronics production. The shortage of components in 2021, which fuelled higher prices and the move by companies to increase output, continued in 2022 leading to a second year of double-digit growth (2021: 14.9%/2022: 12.1%).
