Low capacity: The industry has struggled as the popularity of desktop computers has declined

The Computer Peripheral Manufacturing industry in Canada has experienced tepid growth during the current period as business markets continue to purchase industry products. Computer peripheral products are still desirable in the corporate space although individual consumers are increasingly purchasing mobile devices, which rarely require peripheral add-ons, thus stifling more robust industry expansion. Over the five years to 2018, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to increase. While higher private investment in computers could potentially benefit demand for peripherals, the relatively inexpensive labour market for peripheral manufacturing across Asia will continue to damage Canadian peripheral manufacturing revenue...read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Desktop computers are declining in popularity, but technological advancement in peripherals will buoy revenue growth
  • More efficient production methods enable operators to pass along lower retail prices to consumers
  • Gradually recovering levels of consumer spending will help boost demand for high-margin hard disk drives
  • Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    Computer peripheral manufacturing is largely a labour-intensive rather than capital-intensive activity. For every $1.00 spent on labour, industry operators spend an estimated $0.12 on capital expenditures. The industry’s capital intensity has increased slightly since 2013, when the industry initially spent $0.11 on capital investments for every $1.00 spent on labour. The industry has improved spending on both capital and total wages over the past five years in response to continued outsourcing of peripheral manufacturing responsibilities, leaving the bulk of the more expensive design and engineering services to domestic operators.
