COVID-19 Impact Analysis

As COVID-19 became a global health emergency, it harshly affected the lives of millions and the economies of almost every country around the world. As the onset of the global pandemic was in China, the country has been severely affected by the virus.

The majority of the workers in the Chinese factories travel from the far-flung areas and reaching the factories had become a major problem for them due to the social distancing and other quarantine restrictions. As electronic manufacturing in China is more to be a manual process, and products like tablets or mobile phones and notebook computers need many people to physically touch every product during the manufacturing and assembly process, the possibility of transmission of the virus is quite high. As a result, the majority of the workers are not willing to return to the work, causing delays in production as well as the manufacturing process.

Market Growth Factors

Fulfilling the demands of various customers

Some of the key growth catalysts for the electronics contract manufacturing and design market are the integration of modern skills, economies of varying levels, and focus on competencies. Contract companies obtain a large number of contracts from various clients. By fulfilling the demands of a huge customer base helps the manufacturers to garner a large amount of crude materials at reduced costs. Also, companies can reap the benefit of the fact that capabilities of the contract manufacturers to develop the electronic products, unlike the hirer organization.

Contract manufacturing brings down labor and fixed costs

Companies working in the electronics space must manage fixed as well as labor costs in order to make all the components of the electronics. The main manufacturing units of electronic manufacturing services (EMS) are dedicated to developing and assembling fragile electronic components. Considering a secondary location with completely varied needs contributes to the fixed location costs and the requirement to recruit new employees, hence remarkably increasing the expenses of the companies.

Market Restraining Factors

Less control over manufacturing

Companies moving to CMs have to give up control over the entire manufacturing process. While giving this control to CMs, companies often face the risk of losing crucial knowledge and skills around the production techniques. Without consistent monitoring, companies lose the right and insight to identify any issues in the manufacturing process. As companies do not have control over manufacturing operations, they cannot manage the supply chain process, which may result in massive revenue loss during the time of fluctuation.

Service Outlook

In 2020, the Electronic manufacturing segment acquired the maximum revenue share in the market. The electronic design and engineering segment would display a promising growth rate during the forecasting period. This is attributed to the rising preferences of OEMs to outsource the requirements regarding designing. The demand for electronic circuit boards has been increased with the rising significance of these boards in a wide range of electronic devices like tablets and mobile phones. This factor is likely to act as a key driver for the overall market during the forecast period.

End-User Outlook

The demand for electronic contract manufacturing services would grow due to increasing applications across non-technical end-user segments like healthcare, industrial, automotive, and aerospace and defense. Moreover, the growing demand for electrical vehicles has increased the requirement to outsource their electronic component manufacturing, hence fueling the growth of the electronic contract manufacturing and design services market in the automotive industry.

Regional Outlook

The region is likely to showcase the fastest growth rate during the forecasting period. In addition, China has been a leading country in the regional market. Moreover, China is the hub for electronics manufacturing and dominates the APAC region in this respect. Factors such as a wide-scale availability of raw materials and low-cost labor are anticipated to fuel the growth & demand for electronic contract manufacturing and design in the regional market. Hence, the APAC region would continue to flourish due to these factors over the forecast period.
