In the fourth quarter of 2018, the German Technical consumer goods (TCG) market increased by 1 percent, compared to the same quarter in 2017. The market was affected by the negative growth trend in CE and IT, but also other sectors, e.g. Major Domestic Appliances continued its slight decline. However a positive growth was observed in Telecom and SDA sectors. The TCG market in Germany generated revenue of €17.0 billion in Q4 2018 and €59 billion during the full year 2018.
