According the last video conference meeting with electronics distributors, the Russian electronic components market grew by +5% in the latest 10 month compared with the same period of the previous year. The most of suppliers estimate that the market trends will be stable and see a low growth. Forecast for the end of the year is to close with a +5/7% in sales volume. At the same time, distributors margin decline is more than 10%. This is related with the changes of distribution policy of global components manufacturers as well as the reduction of small and medium customers share.
Forecast for the next year is very difficult due to high level of uncertainty.
