A New Report Focusing on the Chinese OEM Electronics Market and its Key Suppliers

After decades of massive investment by its central government, China has advanced from a nation regarded simply as a land of abundant, cheap labor, to the largest economy and exporter in the world. With a nominal GDP of more than $14.7 trillion in 2020, second only to the United States, it is a powerhouse within the electronics sector. The 2020 value of the country's electronics industry reached nearly $350 billion, accounting for a quarter of worldwide assembly value in 2020.

OEM Electronics Manufacturing in China provides a comprehensive look into the Chinese electronics market. After providing context through a detailed examination of the worldwide electronics marketplace, the report focuses on original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) operating in China. Data includes actual market results from 2020 and forecasts through 2025. 

The purpose of the report is to provide business executives with an insightful analysis of the major application trends affecting the electronics industry. It begins by detailing the worldwide electronics market, organized into seven major application segments: Computers, Communications, Consumer Electronics, Industrial, Medical, Automotive, and Commercial Aviation, Military/Defense, and Other Transportation. In addition, it surveys numerous specific electronics product markets, such as smartphones, tablets, PCs, TVs and other consumer products, and automotive components. The report then does a deep dive into the China electronics market, with the OEM market further detailed in terms of the seven major industry applications. Finally, the report provides details of the top 30 OEM suppliers in China, which together account for close to two-thirds of the total market. 

The 233-page report consists of five chapters as described on the next page. Starting with Chapter 3, the report presents an industry analysis of the broad economic and market trends driving the worldwide electronics industry. It also analyzes the market in terms of manufacturing sources-OEMs, ODMs and EMS-and in terms of major world regions-Americas, EMEA, APAC. Forecast tables provide both assembly value of each market and unit shipments of nearly 50 electronics market segments.

Chapter 4, describes China's overall market, including the differences between OEMs, ODMs, and EMS firms before focusing on the OEM market and suppliers. It also forecasts the OEM market in terms of the major industrial application segments. Finally, Chapter 5, presents detailed profiles of the 30 largest OEM suppliers operating in China. Half are headquartered in China, and half are international corporations with a major manufacturing presence in China. Each profile also includes major China-based subsidiaries and manufacturing facilities.

OEM Electronics Manufacturing in China-2021 Edition establishes the publisher's leadership in analyzing electronics markets and the semiconductor industry around the world. This report is an effective analysis tool for any company interested in competing in China or with companies already manufacturing products there.

The publisher's forecasts are developed using a four-step approach. First, expectations of world economic growth are set based upon historical data and forecasts obtained from published International Monetary Fund (IMF) reports.

Next, a top-down forecast of electronics industry growth is built. This analysis is based primarily on historical data obtained from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) and World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS). Because semiconductor content is at the core of electronics products, semiconductor data is a good triangulation point for total assembly value. This data is augmented with information on passive content and estimates of labor and overhead.

Then, a bottom-up forecast is developed for each of the products in each segment. This is accomplished by first creating a unit forecast for each product based on historical data and various industry-leader opinions regarding future growth prospects for each product. A model of the assembly value of each product is then built using teardown analyses and price-based models. The unit volume times the assembly value per unit equals the total assembly value for each product - often referred to as the cost of goods sold (COGS).

Finally, the first three steps are reiterated to achieve a coherent forecast. The forecasts developed by this process are presented in all their industry reports.
