   Market Analysis

   Brazil is ranked as the third most attractive consumer electronics
market from investment point of view among the E7 countries (including
China, India, Brazil, Russia, Indonesia, Mexico and Turkey). The
Brazilian consumer electronics market increased with CAGR of 8.69% for
the period spanning 2002-2006.

   In the white line category, washing machines and freezers will
grow substantially during the forecasted period (2007-2011) as the
penetration of these products is low in the country.

   In the sound and images category, there is still a lot of
potential for the growth of the TV and DVD sales as the number of
households is increasing and people are looking for new and innovative
products. Same is true for mobile phones - in Brazil; the penetration
rate of mobile phones was low at just 53 mobile phones per 100
inhabitants in 2006, leaving great scope for companies to play in the
market.

   The continuous development and digital technologies are
revolutionizing the consumer electronics industry. Moreover, the
continuously falling prices of consumer electronics with increasing
disposable income are giving reasons to more consumers to spend on
electronics products and this is indicating that the consumer
electronics industry has bright future ahead in Brazil.

   Key Findings

   - Washing machines, freezers, and personal computers are among the
consumer electronics with low penetration rates, indicating ample room
for growth in sales in the medium-term.

   - In terms of sales volume, refrigerators will have the highest
sales followed by washing machines in the whine line goods during the
forecasted period (2007-2011).

   - In the images and sound segment, the DVD sales will increase
with the CAGR value of 8% and have the largest market in terms of
volume by 2011.

   - Retailer credit will play a critical role in driving the
consumer electronics sales coming from the lower socio-economic
segments. Although price will also continue to be a key driver,
financing options such as installment plans will drive the penetration
into these segments.

   - It is expected that per head disposable income in Brazil will
increase at a CAGR of 1.38% during 2007-2011 and will push the
consumer electronics market in the country.
