The PCB & EMS cluster: A sound foundation for electronics manufacturing

Since the launch of the PCB & EMS Marketplace in 2011, productronica has offered a unique forum for the entire PCB and EMS industry - an ideal meeting place for anyone interested in the entire spectrum of PCB and printed circuit board manufacturing or looking for the optimal system solution from a service provider for electronic manufacturing services.

Electronic Manufacturing Services: Economic importance of electronic component manufacturing underestimated

According to In4ma, the electronic manufacturing services (EMS) industry employs approximately 2.35 million people worldwide. According to New Venture Research (NVR), the industry has an annual turnover of 543 billion US dollars. The European market accounts for 50 billion euros of this. According to NVR's analysis, by 2024, 50 percent of the production of all electronic products worldwide will be carried out by EMS service providers.

The electronic manufacturing services industry is therefore a classic outsourcing segment. The companies see themselves as service providers responsible for the complete contract manufacturing of electronic assemblies, devices and systems.This includes development, PCB assembly, test concepts and worldwide delivery.

The Asia-Pacific region accounts for more than 80 percent of the top 50 EMS revenues, followed by the Americas (16 percent). Europe and the Middle East are a distant second (2 percent).
