The US consumer technology industry is expected to grow retail revenues 1.5 percent in 2017 to USD 292 billion, according to a forecast from the the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) ahead of the CES conference. Growth will be driven by emerging tech products such as smart home devices, wearables and 4K TVs, offsetting slow growth in smartphones and lower sales of LCD TVs, tablets and computers.
