Electronic Contract Assembly Market Synopsis


The electronic contract assembly market was valued at USD 88.40 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 157 billion by the end of the forecast period with a CAGR of 10%.


Electronic contract assembly are offered by companies that design, assemble, manufacture, distribute, electronic test components and printed circuit boards assemblies and provide return/repair services for these electronic components and assemblies for original equipment manufacturers. The concept is also referred to as electronics contract manufacturing. Additionally, an original design manufacturer is a company that designs and manufactures a product based on the existing design and specifications. ODM companies acquire original specifications from another company and then design the product accordingly. Such companies offer the supplier or other companies, the capability to get their product built without having to design the hardware and invest in production facilities completely. The high proportion of new start-up businesses, the introduction of new products and technologies, high demand for consumer electronics, automotive electronics and medical electronics is fueling the growth of electronic contract assembly market. Electronic contract assembly companies provide manufacturing capacity, however, the company creating or supplying the specifications retains the ownership of the design.
