Where Should Your Electronic Products Be Manufactured?
Manufacturing makes up a huge portion of the global economy. The electronics manufacturing services (EMS) market comprises 42 percent of all manufacturing, showing no sign of slowing down as our world becomes more and more dependent on electronics. In fact, in 2018, the industry grew 18.1 percent as demand for communications infrastructure and internet storage began to skyrocket.
While China, the US, and Japan are the global leaders in electronic production, they’re not the only players. Regions like Taiwan and India also offer skilled labour, low prices and no tariffs as an advantage.
It’s important to note that wherever you choose to manufacture your products, safeguards should be in place to protect your intellectual property (IP).
