Main products: notebooks and desktops
In the last three years, when the industry began to launch segmented products, the gamer market improved a lot. More than three digits. In 2018, the revenues doubled in comparison to 2017. Today, we see many product launches, thus incrementing the offer and national distribution.
This is a market that is stable now and has all the conditions to grow in the next years, formed by specific items with greater sales registration in the e-commerce. This is due to the higher ticket and to be targeted to a public that grow up in the online world.
Laptops and desktops are the main products of the segment, followed by monitors, mice and keyboards with gamer profile. “In our basket of computing products, the importance of the online channel in the sales revenue is 74%”, says Rui Agapito, director at GfK research company.
