What Does the Computer Repair Industry Look Like in 2018?

If you’re considering opening your own cell phone repair franchise with Experimax, now is a great time to get in on the action. Our industry is booming! Here are some details on what’s going on right now.

Smartphones and tablets are a smash in Australia

One thing is for sure, Australians love their devices. Business Insider theorises that as a continent-sized country similar to the United States, mobile devices like smartphones and tablets make it easier for Australians to communicate with their family and friends. The Deloitte Mobile Consumer Survey 2017 estimates that 88 percent of Australians now own a smartphone! And they’re not just using them to communicate; streaming video is also a popular pastime. Experimax fits right in with this trend. Customers who are ready to trade in their devices can come to Experimax for competitive trade-in values, even on older models. For budget-savvy customers who are looking for great technology with a reasonable price tag, Experimax is the go-to place.

The place to go when devices actually are “smashed”

Given the sheer numbers of Australians who are constantly using their smartphones, accidents are bound to happen. This is one of the reasons that IbisWorld projects continued growth for the smartphone repair industry. In their words, “The rapid market acceptance of smartphones has created a need for more repair shops.” In fact, their US report estimates that the cell phone repair industry is valued at about $4 billion! This is a great opportunity for Experimax franchisees to take advantage of. Experimax stands apart as we strive to do most repairs in-house, and can complete many repairs while our customers wait. Our robust trade-in program ensures that we have many parts on-hand, meaning faster service for our customers. Our excellent service combined with current market trends spells opportunity for our franchisees.

At Experimax, we provide valuable services for our customers who rely on their smartphones and tablets every day. We know how difficult it is to be without a device (35 percent of Australians check their phones within five minutes of waking up!), and we have a reputation for fast and reliable service so that our customers can get re-connected as quickly as possible.
