Industry Overview
This article presents information on the U.S. industry quarterly review for electronic components and computers for the year 2003. The industries that are reviewed are retail and wholesale trade industry. The fields that had been analyzed in the tables include supply, demand, and price. The real stock of retail inventories is forecast to decline roughly 0.5% during the first half of 2003 because of the expected decrease in sales after the holiday shopping season. After falling during all four quarters in 2001, the real stock of retail inventories began to accumulate in 2002, as aggressive price discounting schemes began to have less of an effect on consumers.
