A shortfall in semiconductor production is occurring in 2021 and pushing all sub-categories in computers and peripherals into declines. This follows the positive boost seen in 2020, with consumers spending more time at home and working from home.
Despite the challenges seen, purchases of computers and peripherals continue to be driven by ongoing incidences of home-working and remote education. In the modern day, smartphones have colonised the majority of daily computer-style activities, such as online shopping, social media usage and website browsing.
Additionally, the Colombian government’s priority to ensure citizens have access to digital technology has been enhanced by the event of COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021. Whilst this drive has been ongoing, year-on-year, the pandemic meant that the government generated projects in order to prioritise the urgency required, to enable remote education for people from economically vulnerable populations and in rural environments.
