Last month's domestic shipments of digital home appliances such as TVs and recorders fell by more than 26% from the same month last year, the third consecutive month of negative growth, due to the end of demand for nesting due to the new coronavirus.
According to JEITA = Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association, which is made by electrical appliances manufacturers, the domestic shipment value of digital home appliances was 89.9 billion yen last month, a decrease of 26.8% from the same month last year.
Shipments have fallen below the same month of the previous year for the third straight month, mainly due to the end of demand for nesting due to the spread of the new corona infection.
By product, "video equipment" such as TVs and recorders was 45.2 billion yen, down 19.9%, and "audio-related equipment" such as speakers was 6.3 billion yen, down 14.3%.
In addition, due to the impact of production cuts by automobile manufacturers due to a global shortage of semiconductors, "automobile-related equipment" such as car navigation systems decreased 35% to 38.5 billion yen.
Regarding the outlook for the future, the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association said, "Automakers are curbing car production this month, and the impact on shipments of related equipment such as car navigation systems is expected to continue."Keywords: home appliances, demand, end, shipments, tvs, recorders, shipment value, japan electronics and information technology industries association, nhk, coronavirus, nesting, infection.by, automakers, coronavirus., video equipment
