"Home Audio and Cinema in Italy" is now available at Fast Market Research

Sales of home audio and cinema products continued to decrease in 2015 due to the ongoing economic downturn. In such difficult economic conditions with low levels of consumer confidence and growing unemployment, Italian consumers often postponed unnecessary purchases whilst remaining very careful with all essential expenditure. Cinema and home audio products are not usually perceived as absolute necessities by the majority of Italians, especially now that consumer electronics devices such as tablets and smartphones now perform many of the functions traditionally performed by home audio and cinema systems. In addition, manufacturers are no longer investing as much as they used to in new product developments, marketing campaigns or the implementation of innovative technologies in home audio and cinema as they would generally rather spend their currently limited resources on consumer electronics categories that offer faster or a higher returns on investment. As a result, few Italians purchased new home audio and cinema products in 2015.
