Various consumer electronics OEMs lack in-house development, manufacturing, and testing capabilities. The outsourced electronic manufacturing services lower the cost of development, prototyping, and testing various electronic products. It further helps companies to fasten the product development lifecycle and gain high-profit margins to compete in the market. These intuitive benefits are expected to encourage OEMs to enter strategic collaborations and partnerships with market players to meet their demands, further propelling the industry growth. Several electronic manufacturing services providers are emphasizing on establishing dedicated manufacturing facilities and production lines to timely expedite the orders.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the electronic manufacturing services (EMS) market in the first half of 2020. In early 2020, several government bodies and regulatory authorities have implemented stringent lockdowns to limit the spread of coronavirus. Adding to this, several electronic manufacturing services vendors reduced their production capacities due to supply-chain disruptions and declining demand from end-user industries such as the consumer electronics & automotive sectors. However, from the second half of 2020, enterprises across the globe adopted the work-from-home model, which increased the industry demand for computing hardware such as laptops, desktops/PCs, and tablets.

Increasing trend of high-volume manufacturing among OEMs will spur the market expansion

The electronic manufacturing segment dominated more than 60% of the market share in 2021 and is anticipated to witness 6% growth rate through 2028. The growth is driven by the growing trend of high-volume manufacturing of advanced safety systems among automotive OEMs. Various automotive safety systems, such as parking assistance systems, lane departure warning systems, adaptive cruise control, and advanced telematics, are integrated into vehicles. Electronic manufacturing services providers mass-produce these components to support the automotive industry participants.

Computer manufacturers are projected to switch toward electronic manufacturing services providers for the fast delivery of products in the market and manage logistics services during the pandemic crisis. Adding to this, market leaders are focusing on collaborative approaches to improve their mass production of computing solutions such as desktops, laptops, and portable PCs.
