    Electronic Manufacturing Services Global Market Outlook


    Global market size: $597.99 billion (2022 E)

    Expected to grow at a CAGR of 7-9 percent from 2022 to 2025, to reach $758.9 Billion.

    • IoT integration, EV, hybrid EV, smartphone innovations, automotive electronics growth, due to smart cars and industrial electronics, are the major driving factors for the EMS industry

    • Increased mergers and acquisitions is driving the EMS industry expansion in EMEA market.

    • Prevailing Shortage situation is significantly impacting the North American EMS market.

    Global EMS Market Overview

    • Electronic manufacturing services market posted a bullish growth rate of ~13.8 percent between 2020 and 2021, supported by strong sales order from notebooks, servers, computers, and smart phones.

    • EMS market is estimated to be 597.9 Million USD and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8-9% to 758.9 Million USD driven by strong demand from Automotive, Communications, Computing etc.,

    Electronic Manufacturing Services Market Drivers and Constraints


    • Technology Innovation: External OEMs pressure to introduce new products in the market on account of intense competition is driving technological innovation and thus in turn expanding the market opportunities for EMS players

    • Outsourcing trends: Increasing rate of outsourcing to contract manufacturers for cost optimization has now expanded from Consumer, Communication sectors to new market segments such as Automotive and Medical sectors. Corona crisis has elevated the market demand for critical health care devices such as Ventilators, Respiratory devices and more and EMS companies has rightly positioned. Also, the need for increased quality, flexible solutions and quicker operational speed (i.e., speed to market) are some factors that are increasing the dependance for EMS players.

    • Growing end use demand: Computer, Communication and Consumer sector are the prime sectors driving the Electronic manufacturing services market. COVID driven Work from Home policy, Implementation of 5G infrastructure plan and adoption of Wireless and IoT based consumer devices are expected to further expand the market size of EMS industry. Also, the penetration of emerging EV/HEV demands for high complex assemblies and further is expected to boost the market. Demand for medical devices has shown an elevated growth trend during the early COVID phase and has outpaced the sales orders as compared to other market segments.

    • Changing Industrial landscape: During the pandemic situation, Most of the industries have been exposed to Supply chain risk on account of sourcing problems, labor shortage and logistics issues. Considering this, the companies have realigned their strategies and were looking out for domestic sourcing alternatives. Hence, the companies tend to go with diversification of supply base so as to mitigate the supply chain risks and hence, it may be expected that the global EMS companies may expand their presence in varied geographies so as to address this.


    • Extended Lead times of electronic components: Particularly during the COVID situation, Many EMS players were facing shortage of electronic components due to supply chain problems. Hence, this results in extended delivery times and thus in turn affecting the supplier and OEM relationship

    • Shrinking Margins: Considering the global competition and fast paced innovations in the industry, OEMs demand for cost reduction and hence, EMS players were forced to reduce their profit margins and eventually they do reduce their cost so as to gain business orders.

    • Penetration of Counterfeit Electronic Components & Quality control: Usage of counterfeit products affects the quality and performance of the assembly/final product. Hence, Quality management team and protocols (quality traceability system and compliance) are must to have factors expected by the OEM’s so as to ensure product quality.

    • Sustainability: Disposal of electronic wastes from the industry should be properly regulated and controlled as improper disposal methods can create harmful effects to environment.

    EMS Cost Structure Analysis

    • The major cost factors involving a global IFM model are raw materials and energy costs, which account for about 70 percent percent of the total cost. Rising global inflation is expected to put pressure on the prices across all the cost components and in turn limits the negotiation potential for an OEM.

    • Raw material like aluminium, steel, copper and polypropylene takes up almost 40 percent of the overall cost of an electronic component. Electricity follows the above taking up 25 percent of the overall cost

    • Generally, severe fluctuations in the material pricing will effectively show in the overall component pricing but, nowadays, component pricing generally remains low even with increased raw material pricing and energy in order to sustain the high competition in the market

    Supply Trends and Insights : Electronic Manufacturing Services

    Supply market Overview 

    • Electronic manufacturing services supply base is highly fragmented with suppliers serving to multiple industries such as Computers and Peripherals, Communication and Telecom, Consumer, Automotive etc.,.

    • Supply base concentration is found to be relatively higher in Asian countries specifically China, India and other south east Asian countries.

    Supply Capabilities
