CES 2012 CHANGE IS IN THE AIR
By Jim Bennett
The New Year begins with challenged major global economies and their citizens attempting to cope with painful changes fueled by a continuing worldwide debt crisis. Disruptive monetary manipulations with multi- trillion dollar commitments without hope of sustainable ROI performance that any normal enterprise or shareholders would demand. These unsustainable practices need to be curtailed now. Private funding should be readily available to encourage “true innovators” in the medium to small “performance driven” companies that work in the Consumer Electronics sector have achieved measurable results for decades.
Coupling onerous, unnecessary regulations created by bloated, ill informed, self serving governments and supporters have developed an unrealistic “To Big to Fail” mentality. This is exhibited by certain financial groups and other nefarious people have created a serious global economic disaster looming on the horizon. Let creative and innovative enterprises thrive and grow that inspire people globally.
In 2012, the dynamic consumer electronics industry is forecasted to exceed $ 1 trillion in sales. Growth is driven by truly innovative companies producing desired products and services. Developing markets likeChina,IndiaandMiddle Eastrepresent aggressive growth and strong demand for smartphones, tablet PC’s, TV’s, video entertainment and business enterprise products and systems.
The tablet market is exploding with worldwide sales to consumers expected to reach 88 million in 2012. Smartphone penetration globally is only 36%. Inexpensive and new form factor computers will continue to be in high demand for communication, education and business.
The growth of the next billion connected individuals entering the Internet will be via mobile, not the desktop. They want to make their life more informed and have experiences richer and more fulfilling.
Smartphones will be the indispensable tech device.
