TWICE Releases Annual Top 100 CE Retailer Report

NEW YORK, NY (May 23, 2017) — TWICE, the authority in CE news and analysis, has published its annualTop 100 Consumer Electronics Retailers Report today. This report, which has annually provided the industry with a valuable snapshot of trends and results for the past 13 years, is produced in conjunction with market research firm The Stevenson Company.

This exclusive proprietary data is a must-read for everyone attached to the consumer technology and electronics retail industry, with the content being absorbed by the entire CE ecosystem — including the investment community who monitor this important sector. According to Ed Hecht, VP Group Publisher, TWICE, “The information conveyed in this report is a bellwether for the general health of the U.S. economy.”

Some key points from this year’s report includes:

  • Amazon led the pack with a 25-percent increase in sales last year, although Best Buy remains No. 1 with nearly $31 billion in consumer electronics revenue.
  • Total sales for the Top 100 grew 1.5 percent to a staggering $137 billion, despite a period of intense competition and contraction for retailers across all industries.
  • The ten largest tech retailers alone accounted for more than 80 percent of total revenue, reflecting the powerful forces of consolidation across the consumer electronics landscape.
  • Our Top 100 rankings encompass more than 90 percent of total U.S. tech sales at retail.

“Our annual Top 100 Consumer Electronics Retailers Report paints a picture of an industry in transition, and points out the previous year’s winners, losers, movers, and shakers,” states John Laposky, Editor in Chief of TWICE. “It is the most carefully researched and accurate report of its kind, and therefore a valuable tool for anyone who does business in the consumer technology space.”

“Our Top 100 Report reflects a major retail reboot as consumer shopping habits shift and the tech biz embraces a new, connected world of smart, voice-controlled devices,” adds Alan Wolf, TWICE Senior Editor and manager of this project.
