April 1, 2015, Nevada City, California – Manufacturing Market Insider (MMI) announces the Top 50 EMS Companies which surpasses $265 billion in revenue.
Manufacturing Market Insider, a newsletter specializing in the EMS (electronics manufacturing services) industry, has released its annual MMI Top 50™ list of the world’s largest EMS providers. In 2014, Top 50 sales reached a new high of $265 billion – more than $10 billion greater than in 2013.
Top 50 sales grew by 4.0% last year, a good growth rate for the top 50 as a whole. Company growth rates in revenue ranged from 5o+ percent to -20 percent with the majority exhibiting very positive numbers.
Making the Top 50 for 2013 was more difficult than the year before. To qualify for the 2013 list, EMS providers needed a minimum of $275 million in sales, compared with the prior year’s cutoff of $224 million.
MMI Top 50 providers were ranked based on 2014 sales in U.S. dollars. In order, the top ten were Hon Hai, Pegatron, Flextronics, Jabil, New Kinpo Group, Sanmina, Celestica, Benchmark Electronics, Shenzhen Kaifa Technology and Universal Scientific Industrial.
In addition to ranking providers by 2014 sales, MMI Top 50 listings include sales growth, previous rank, number of employees, number of plants, facility space, space in low-cost regions, number of SMT lines and customer data. This special section was published in the March 2015 edition of MMI.
