The global EMS (Electronic Manufacturing Services) market size in 2019 was $463.2 billion. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7-8 percent by 2022, to reach $575.69 billion.  In 2017 the EMS industry expanded by 10.7 percent, and this was due to a huge growth in end-use segments, such as the telecom sector, industrial sector, and medical markets.The EMS market comprises both EMS and ODM businesses because most manufacturers (ODM and EMS) get involved in other business simultaneously.The major end-use industries in EMS are communication and computer hardware sectors, which hold around 59 percent of the demand. 

Electronic Manufacturing Services Market Analysis and Global Outlook

  • The global EMS market is expected to reach $575.69 Billion by 2022. This is due to the significant decline in laptop/desktop shipment, which is expected to drop further, in addition to the sluggish recovery of the global economy since 2013
  • The EMS market in the US and Canada region was at $66.41 Billion in 2017 and is growing at a CAGR of around 0.25-0.5 percent in 2017-2018. The growth rate for 2019-2020 is 1-2%.
  • Nowadays, many electronics OEMs are adopting a regional strategy for manufacturing. The US and Canada are developing their manufacturing capabilities to quench the needs of OEMs.
  • Labor rates in China which were the cheapest in the world about 10 years ago, have increased rapidly in the recent times. Thus, Apple is building its new MacPro computer in Texas, US. GE has moved production of some of its appliances from China to its Appliance Park in Kentucky, US. Similarly, Lenovo and Google Glass have started shifting their EMS industry needs to the US.
  • The LATAM market size in 2019 was $54.42 billion. The growth rate for 2019-2020 is 3 percent.
  • Mexico is the leading exporter of domestic electronic appliances in LATAM and the sixth largest in the world.
  • Mexico’s key strategies are cost savings and technical talents, excellent transport infrastructure, developing effecient supply chain process to improve its position in world ranking.
  • The EMEA market size in 2019-2020 is $32.01 billion. It is growing at a rate of 0.5–1 percent annually for the same period.
  • EMS revenue in Western Europe is expected to reach €13.5 billion in 2019 from €11.2 billion in 2017, with the market increasingly focussed on end-use industries, like aerospace, defense, automotive, medical, control and instrumentation, industrial telecom segments.
  • In Western Europe, when there was a visible decrease in revenue of around 1.2 percent, Eastern and Central Europe, Middle East, and North Africa are balancing the situation by showing 3.4 percent growth and stabilize the European market.
  • Taiwan positioned as a core for the electronics industry with 75 percent of the global EMS industry are Taiwanese companies. Also, APAC is expected to dominate the market in terms of growth prospects until 2018-19
  • Demand for consumer electronic products is on the rise, driven by innovation, price deflation, and growing household incomes, particularly in the emerging markets in Asia.
  • APAC’s supply chain starts with product design, semiconductor fabrication and packaging, components and subsystems, final assembly and testing, which is also slowly moving toward low-cost countries in APAC, like India, Indonesia, etc., for reducing the manufacturing cost.
  • The APAC market size in 2019 is $292.46 billion and it is expected to grow at a rate of 3-4 percent in 2019-2020.
  • In 2017, the EMS industry expanded by 10.7 percent, and this is mainly due to large growth in end-use segments, such as the telecom sector (35.5 percent), industrial and medical markets
  • EV, hybrid EV smartphone innovations, automotive electronics growth due to smart cars and industrial electronics are the major driving factors for the EMS industry
  • As the Asian market is expected to grow equally expensive over western regions, the supply chain trend is expected to gradually shift from APAC regions to the US and some of the Eastern European regions.
