UK television receivers market: £16 billion industry in 2012
Television and Radio Receivers, Sound and Video Recording Devices in United Kingdom: ISIC 323 - a new market research report on 2014-03-11 17:10:04
In 2012 in the UK television receivers market there were 643 companies manufacturing TVs, radios and sound/video recording devices. The number of active firms dropped by 23% from 2006, mainly following exits of the British SMEs. At the end of the review period the industry was fairly consolidated, with the five largest companies accounting for a dominant 61% share of all earnings.

Demand for television and radio receivers, sound and video recording devices mainly driven by UK households, which accounted for around 78% of total sales over 2006-2012. The market was mature and saturated, as already in 2007 more than 80% of homes in the UK had multi-channel digital TV sets. Watching TV and listening to music continued to be the most popular leisure activities for both men and women, but there was little need for new devices.

UK companies manufacturing television and radio receivers and sound/video recording devices are projected to record a 2% annual turnover decline over 2013-2018, bringing total revenue down to £1.9 billion. Local manufacturers will continue to lose share in the UK and in global markets to manufacturers located in countries where labour costs are low and supply chains deep. Successful UK companies will be those offering very high quality products and attractive brands, although they will increasingly choose to make their products outside the UK.
