Consumer electronics and home appliances will be in the focus at the IFA in Berlin from September 2 to 7, 2016, including a Hong Kong combined stand (Hall 26c, Stand 628) organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).
In 2015, Hong Kong’s electronics industry’s share in total exports increased from 61 to 64 per cent. A significant part related to high-tech products like telecommunications equipment and semiconductors. The export of electronic goods fell slightly by 1.8 per cent to USD 134.8 billion in the first half of 2016. While demand decreased in China and the USA, Europe showed further growth. There was also a slight fall in imports into Hong Kong during this period by two per cent (USD 140.9 billion). The exports of electrical household appliances in the first half of 2016 were 14.7 per cent down compared to the same period of 2015. The decrease in imports into Hong Kong was less pronounced (-8.3 per cent). Hong Kong manufacturers see further potential for mobile devices with smart functions, high-end smartphones, smart and UHDTVs as well as 3D printers.
