Annual report providing detailed market and company analysis on the European EMS Industry for the Period 2015-2020

Whether directly involved as an EMS, OEM, or as a key supplier Reed Electronics Research’s (RER) on-going research on the European EMS market provides in-depth knowledge on one of the key sectors of the European electronics industry. In the latest European study, the fourteenth since the first report was published in 1993, RER provides an independent assessment of the European EMS industry looking at the key issues impacting the Market and the Competitive Landscape through 2015-2020.

Market Data
Report includes: Revenue forecasts for 30 countries split across Western Europe, CEE and Middle East/North Africa (MENA) for 2015-2020; Market data by sector for Western Europe and CEE/MENA for 2015-2020; and an analysis of the key issues impacting the market
Key findings include:
- After declining in 2014 the European EMS industry is forecast to reach Euro 27.4 billion in 2016, its second year of consecutive growth.
- EMS revenues in Western Europe are forecast to reach Euro 11.7 billion in 2020, up from Euro 10.8 billion in 2015, with the market increasingly focused on the Aerospace, Defence, Automotive, Medical, Control & Instrumentation, Industrial and Telecom (ADAMCIT) segments of the market.
- Pricing pressures and the transfer of production to manufacturing facilities in CEE/MENA to reduce costs and the increasing demand by OEMs for EMS to offer local manufacturing in key global markets will dampen growth in Western Europe during the period to 2020.
- Although the CEE/MENA region will continue to be focused on higher volume products in the consumer, computing and communications, or 3C, segments growth will increasingly be focused on production transferred from higher cost sites in Western Europe.
- Assuming that the leading global EMS providers remain committed to retaining a major manufacturing presence in the region revenues are forecast to reach Euro 18.3 billion by 2020, up from Euro 16.6 billion in 2015.
- The DACH region - Germany, Austria and Switzerland - will offer significant potential for growth over the period to 2020, the major national companies facing increased competition from Group 2 and 3 European companies.

Company Data
Report includes: Industry trends; Top 50 ranking of the leading European EMS providers in 2015; Top 50 ranking of the leading European-owned EMS providers based on global revenues in 2015; An analysis of the leading EMS providers by country/region; 86 company profiles.
Key findings include:
- Over 1,000 EMS companies are operating in Europe with the majority small (revenues under Euro 10 million) serving national markets.
- The Top 3 Global players - Foxconn, Flex and Jabil Circuit - accounted for 45% of European EMS revenues in 2015. However, the vast majority of their revenues are in the 3C segment and from low-cost facilities in CEE/MENA.
- Approaching 77% of the total sales (Euro 21.0 billion) are achieved by the leading 50 companies or 5% of the total number. We are expecting that there will be further consolidation across the industry due to the downward price pressure, slow economic growth and requirement to broaden and deepen the design, development and aftercare services to customers.
- Recent acquisitions are changing the overall structure of the industry with the emergence of larger European Groups, the most recent Scanfil’s purchase of PartnerTech and Neways acquisition of BuS Elektronik.
- With the Global Group 1 companies scaling back their activities in Western Europe and despite a number of crossborder acquisitions within the region domestic players dominate their home market.
- A low-cost manufacturing facility in CEE/MENA is now a requirement for Group 2 and 3 companies and for the larger ones a global footprint is needed to meet customer requirements.
