Infographic: Deep Dive Into the Top Consumer Electronics Retailers of 2018
Combing through our annual repository of the top consumer electronics retailers in North America is always an entertaining task. We love data, and there’s no greater collection of numbers and figures with the pages of Dealerscope (print or digital) than our Top 101 listing. Even better than simply looking at the rankings, which you can download for free right here, is diving deeper into those published numbers to conduct a consumer electronics retail industry analysis.
For the last several years, we’ve taken the opportunity to analyze the latest figures, such as consumer electronics sales data, on a much deeper level. It’s one thing to read that sales climbed some 14 percent this year, but to actually drill down and see which CE retailers helped achieve that kind of growth—and those who prevented those gains from being even greater—tells a much more compelling story. And then there’s the store count data, which we’ve been tracking for the past three years as well. Whereas the narrative has been written that brick-and-mortar retail is contracting and dying, our research, at least as it relates to consumer tech retailers, shows why that’s just plain false.
Using the power of data analytics platform Tableau, we hope to give you a deeper understanding of the consumer electronics industry outlook, how the Top 101 retailers are actually performing, and paint a clearer picture of this industry. The infographic you’ll find below is incredibly interactive, so be sure to click and scroll through each individual chart to get more information. The experience is optimized for mobile, but will certainly play nicer in a desktop environment.
Either way, we hope you enjoy this deep dive into our 2018 Dealerscope Top 101 list.
