News from the USA

28 March 2018

As you probably know, Custer Consulting has had a working relationship with Henderson Ventures for the past two decades. Some of the data and forecasts in the Henderson Electronic Market Forecast Quarterly (HEMFQ) reports have periodically appeared in our own publications. Since Ed Henderson has recently announced his retirement, he has authorized Custer Consulting Group to offer the final HEMFQ Report, which was delivered to Ed’s clients this month.

The March HEMFQ Report contains economic and electronic industry forecasts from 2014 through 2021. Projections include 45 countries and regions. Forecasts of electronic equipment production include the following categories for each geographical entity:

Total equipment
Business and Retail
Consumer electronics
Computer equipment
Military hardware
Industrial equipment
Automotive electronics

Dollar values and growth rates, along with production shares for each country, region and the world totals are provided for each equipment category on a single page in chapter 2. A “reverse sort” is contained in Chapter 3 wherein a regional breakdown of each equipment category Is provided.

To better define the contents of the March HEMFQ I have attached excerpts from that report. The Management Perspectives excerpts essentially contain chapter 1 of the full March HEMFQ. This  report summary is suitable for distribution to senior management. Page 2-1 shows the regional categories covered in Chapter 2.

The HEMFQ information  allows clients to compare their own company’s performance against specific geographical and hardware combinations. The resultant comparisons provide early-warning benchmarks against which to assess market-share changes, as well as identifying potential targets for strategic and tactical marketing plans.

If you would like to receive the full March HEMFQ report please email back the attached order form at your earliest convenience. Please note that you may distribute the PDF report to members of your company free of additional charge.

If you are interested we will send further details on the reports.
