CE Market Stability at Hong Kong Show
If sartorial trends are a sign of economic times, then the thousands of products on display at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition this week are pointing to continued uncertainty.
Bright colors in everything from tablets to headphones and speakers were in abundance. Such iridescent trends in fashion are historically thought to reflect morose economic prospects. But show organizers, market analysts and exhibitors all say business is not shrinking.
"It is not growing but it is stabilizing," said Prof. K.B. Chan, honorary chairman of the Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association. He noted that there were more exhibitors this year than ever before, more buyers from more countries, and the industry was taking steps to address changes in the marketplace.
