GLOBAL EMS/ODM MARKET PROJECTED TO RESUME GROWTH IN 2014 IPC Reports New Data, Provides Forecasts

Jan 22, 2014

A new, survey-based study by IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® includes projections that electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and original design manufacturers (ODM) markets worldwide will resume growth in 2014 after a decline of approximately 4.9 percent in 2013. The 2012–2013 Analysis & Forecast for the Global EMS Industry, published last month, also predicts that although EMS/ODM growth rates have historically outpaced those of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the gap will narrow over the next four years as the growth rate of OEM electronics outsourcing slows.

In addition to forecasts, the report presents data and analysis on recent industry trends, such as the substantial decrease of system build as a percentage of North American EMS companies’ total sales, coupled with a corresponding increase in assembly revenue as a total percentage of sales, in 2013. Other data point to decreased capital equipment spending by EMS companies in 2013.

2012–2013 Analysis & Forecast for the Global EMS Industry also examines trends in sources of revenue, revenue per employee, services offered, markets served, capital investment and spending on equipment and materials. Market size, including forecasts and potential for market expansion, is also covered.

The report is 95 pages long, and based on data provided by a representative sample of 120 EMS companies with a total of 135 facilities worldwide, accounting for $5.3 billion in EMS sales in 2012.

2012–2013 Analysis & Forecast for the Global EMS Industry is available to IPC members for $450 and $900 for nonmembers. Companies that participated in the survey received the report for free.
