2 Apr, 2008 By: Erik Gruenwedel

In addition to continued evolution of consumer electronics markets in India, the Middle East and China, next year's mandatory switch in the United States from analog to digital television transmission will help drive the global CE industry through 2011, according to a new report.

Shipments of PCs, traditional CE devices such as TVs and communication products (mobile phones) will grow to 3.1 billion units from 2.7 billion in 2007, according to In-Stat, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based technology research firm.

“Traditional consumer electronics devices continue to be led by the conversion from analog to digital television (DTV),” said Brian O'Rourke, In-Stat analyst.
