The worldwide electronics assembly market has experienced continuous growth over the last 20 years, stimulated by the trend to outsource electronics assembly to EMS (electronic manufacturing service) and ODM (original design manufacturer) companies. NVR has tracked the electronics assembly market for over 20 years, producing research reports that focus on all aspects of this industry. This special report summarizes all electronics production across three primary geographies (Americas, EMEA, APAC), seven market segments, and in-house versus outsourced production among 46 unique product application areas. The report’s market segments include:

  • Automotive
  • Communications
  • Computers/Peripherals
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Industrial
  • Medical
  • Aerospace/Military/Other Transportation


Production data by leading OEMs within each product/market segment include:

  • COGS Assembly Revenue
  • Electronics COGS Assembly Revenue
  • Outsourced/In‐Housed Assembly Revenue
  • Assembly Revenue by 3 Regions
  • Assembly Revenue by 46 Products


The nearly 390 leading OEMs surveyed were chosen not only for their size, but also for their leadership within their industry/product segment and their market share. For example, in the smart phone sector, the OEM database ranks 24 manufacturing companies in terms of COGS production value, product and market share, and with whom and where manufacturing takes place.

This database report is the only available source of market share information on OEM electronics production for both in-house and outsourced assembly. The report contains over 64 Excel tables and 86 pages of PowerPoint presentations. For more information, contact Karen Williams at New Venture Research at 408‐244‐1100 or visit
