Hannes Wallin, CEO and Founder of Fractal comments:
“The market conditions remained challenging during the quarter, with generally weak demand for gaming hardware, which impacted both sales and earnings. We predict a stronger trend during the second half of the year and that we will return to profitable growth.

The availability of graphics cards and strong price increases, which have impacted the demand for PC gaming hardware globally for the past 12 months, gradually improved during the first half of the year. A new generation of graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD will be launched in the second half of the year and these, together with continued greater availability of graphics cards, is predicted to boost interest among many gamers to upgrade their computers. We continue to drive our growth initiatives with a focus on delivering high quality products, a high level of service and increased marketing efforts. Several exciting launches are planned for the autumn, and we are looking forward to launching these in the market

Although the uncertainty regarding demand and product supply has increased due to the war in Ukraine and continued pandemic effects in Asia, we expect to be able to again report growth in the second half of the year as prices for graphics cards continue to fall.”
