Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) Market size worth over $650bn by 2026
Published Date: August 4, 2020 Authors: Preeti Wadhwani, Shubhangi Yadav
Electronic Manufacturing Services Market size is set to surpass USD 650 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
The EMS market growth is attributed to the increasing penetration of Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) across the globe. The outsourcing of electronic manufacturing services through ODMs has witnessed high growth as major electronics players, such as Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Sony, Philips, and Apple, demand technical solutions from ODMs. ODMs offer high-end manufacturing services such as engineering, logistics, re-engineering, and manufacturing as well as intellectual proprietary rights (IP) including patents and original design rights. Major ODMs in the market, such as Compal, Wistron, Quanta Computer, and Inventec, are highly focusing on increasing their business operations, which will contribute to the market expansion.
The growing digitization and advancements in medical devices are creating the need for electronic contracting manufacturing services to provide safe & secure machinery across the globe. Technical advancement in sensor technology and growing adoption of remote health-monitoring devices are creating new growth opportunities for EMS service providers. Companies in the healthcare sector are building strategic partnership to achieve high-quality and high-precision medical equipment.
The major factor hindering electronic manufacturing services market progression is inefficiency to deliver high volume of production owing to the limitation in the supply of raw materials and electronic components from the supplier. Mass production requires large space, extensive infrastructure, and equipment, which incur high costs. In addition, it also limits the ability of EMS providers to make custom products that meet the specific desires of clients. Moreover, high-volume products are sometimes viewed as being of low quality or generic. In such a scenario, outsourcing manufacturing services is not a preferred option for a company, hindering growth opportunities.
Stringent government regulations pertaining to safety for electronic devices will increase the acceptance of test & development implementation in the market
The test & development implementation segment in the EMS market was valued at around USD 50 billion in 2019 and is projected to register 4% growth rate through 2026 driven by the increasing safety and quality guidelines directed by several governments for service manufacturing companies.
Test & development implementation plays a crucial role in the overall manufacturing process due to the growing need for developing products with appropriate components to avoid failures and improper functioning. Additionally, these services are also becoming popular due to the emergence of electronic devices comprising hardware & software capabilities. In order to facilitate correct functioning of these devices, companies are increasingly adopting testing & implementation services to gain manufacturing benefits. Increasing device complexities and the development of IoT-based devices are majorly driving the need for test & development implementation. Service providers offer trained employees, testers, and testing software to carry out the required process, further fueling the industry growth.
