The economic environment negatively impacted volume sales of mobile phones in 2015. The blackout of information as a consequence of government restrictions drove demand for information from social networks and Venezuelans continued to demand mobile devices with internet access so as to be informed about important news items, despite the introduction of new import tariffs or more restrictive foreign exchange controls, which hampered supply in 2015. Given that the key players in the category suffered from limited imports of products due a lack of foreign currency and the decline in credit offered by international suppliers as a consequence of the high debt levels in official currency held by the government, many retailers imported small amounts of inventory from the US, China and Panama in order to supply their own stores with the most popular products, although this was insufficient to meet demand.
