Market restraints stalling the growth of the Asia Pacific Mobile Protective Case Market
Threat of piracy
Piracy is a worldwide menace, and impacts the market for mobile phone protective cases. In pirated products, the kind of materials utilized, sound properties, as well as the durability of the pirated products are inferior to those offered by major mobile accessories manufacturers. However, due to the low price of the pirated products – which are offered at a fraction of the price of the original products – consumers, especially in developing countries such as China and India are attracted towards buying such pirated products. Thus, counterfeit products hamper market growth to a significant extent.
Lack of standardization
Presently, there is a lack of standardization in technology and components used in the manufacturing of mobile phone accessories. The lack of definite standards in the market lead to high product and price differentiation, and this may hinder the growth of the mobile protective case market to a certain extent.
