Over the past several years, the growth of mobile devices has been the primary driver of the electronic contract manufacturing services industry. Due to the growing need for medical equipment, the medical sector is expected to expand significantly. Medical device production requires sophisticated technology and rigorous regulatory compliance. As a result, outsourcing such operations allows OEMs to speed up R&D and lower device costs in order to obtain a competitive edge, which is anticipated to drive market development. Furthermore, automotive, aerospace, and military are expected to expand faster than technical sectors like information technology and telecommunications, as well as consumer services. Despite the many benefits that electronic contract manufacturing and design services providers have in the production processes, contract manufacturing is not always the ideal choice for OEMs. Many times, OEM executives fail to see that outsourcing assembly processes may be more time-consuming and complex than using in-house resources.
The global electronic contract manufacturing services market has been segmented based on services, and end-use. Electronic manufacturing was the most popular service category in 2020, accounting for more than 42% of total revenue. Electronic circuit boards are becoming more important in numerous electronic products, which is driving increased demand for electronic contract manufacturing services. Prototypes for new product development may be designed and tested by OEMs. Additionally, the services offered by contractors allow OEMs to create innovative products with minimal capital expenditure and sophisticated production methods.
Based on regions, the global electronic contract manufacturing services market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central and South America and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific area is projected to expand the fastest, followed by North America, due to an increase in outsourcing operations in these regions. In 2019, Asia Pacific had the highest market share, and it is expected to continue to expand at the fastest rate during the projected period. Furthermore, China has a dominating position in electronics production, accounting for more than 33% of the region's market. The widespread availability of raw materials coupled with low-cost labour are anticipated to fuel electronic contract manufacturing services further over the forecast period.
