Globalization means different things to midmarket OEMs and EMS companies than to top tier multinational enterprises (MNEs). Opportunities and challenges must be assessed carefully and each company must exercise due diligence to determine if, when and how it should attempt to do business in emerging markets.
This report compiles infrastructure, population and high-tech "readiness" data, specific to electronics manufacturing from 18 emerging countries. Its purpose is to provide an analytical framework to help midmarket OEMs and EMS companies assess opportunities and challenges in establishing or expanding their global footprint.
The complete 80-page Next Horizon Report is available to Outsourcing Navigator Council members, and includes country profiles on geographies as well as EMS profiles, data charts related to infrastructure, population, electronics readiness, corruption, ease of doing business, and much more.
