EMS Industry to Grow to $551B by 2021


Reading time ( words)

The worldwide electronics manufacturing services (EMS) market is a determining force in production of electronics products and now accounts for almost 40% of all assembly. While the rate of growth for outsourcing has slowed, it still represents the most desired manufacturing model for the assembly of advanced electronics products available to OEM companies. The EMS industry declined approximately 1.1% in 2016 as a result of the slowing of sales for PCs (desktop, notebook and ultra).

In its latest report, The Worldwide Electronics Manufacturing Services Market – 2017 Edition, New Venture Research (NVR) estimates that total electronics assembly value was $1.4 trillion in 2016 and will grow to approximately $1.7 trillion in 2021.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.
