The global computer peripheral manufacturing industry is concentrated in Asia. Companies in Japan have traditionally dominated the computer printer market, and China, Singapore, and Taiwan host large numbers of both computer peripheral OEMs and contract manufacturers that serve the industry.
The computer peripheral equipment manufacturing industry in the US includes about 600 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $7 billion. Storage devices for computers, which are not included in the industry, are covered in the Data Storage Systems Manufacturing industry profile.
Competitive Landscape
Demand is driven by consumer and government spending, as well as capital spending by businesses. The profitability of individual companies depends on technological innovation, anticipating customer requirements, and delivering consistent product quality. Large companies compete by staffing large, international direct sales forces, and their ability to form strategic alliances with large original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and major distributors. Small companies can compete effectively by developing innovative technologies. The US industry is highly concentrated: the top 50 companies account for about 80% of revenue.
The US imports more than $20 billion in computer peripheral equipment annually. More than half of all imports come from China. Other top exporters to the US include Japan, Mexico, Thailand, and Taiwan.
