The Worldwide Semiconductor and Manufacturing Assembly Markets – 2012 Edition is a special report consisting of an Excel database and Word document discussion. The report examines the total assembly costs of 47 different electronics products starting with their semiconductor value, non-IC related costs, assembly of printed circuit board (PCB) and final box assembly. As such, it provides a unique understanding of the total cost of goods sold (COGS) for leading electronics products.
New Venture Research (NVR) has followed the electronics assembly industry for over 20 years with numerous research reports that focus on semiconductor packaging, printed circuit board assembly, as well as the EMS subcontracting markets. This latest report, The Worldwide Semiconductor and Manufacturing Assembly Markets – 2012 Edition, is designed to help our customers understand the true cost of electronics manufacturing within seven critical electronics market segments including:

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


Within these seven market segments are 47 unique product categories that are quantified for their electronics assembly value. The following production data is provided for each individual product category in terms of units shipped, average assembly value (AAV), and assembly revenue:

  • Semiconductor ICs
  • Passives/Discretes
  • Non-PCB Assembly
  • PCB Assembly
  • Box Assembly
  • Total Assembly

A separate Word document provides a discussion of each market segment, leading and emerging products, and dominant trends. High growth products are examined for their market leadership and impact on the semiconductor, PCB and Box assembly markets.
