Outsourcing strategies employed by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) dictate the growth prospects of all other nodes participating in the electronics supply chain. With OEMs depending increasingly on external partners for product design and manufacturing services, managers are challenged with critical tasks such as understanding the complex OEM-EMS-ODM-IDH relationships to identify business opportunities and conduct competitive analyses.
To help you navigate the electronics value chain, IHS Markit developed the Global OEM Manufacturing and Design Analysis (GOMDA)™. The GOMDA is a unique service which examines the design and manufacturing outsourcing strategies of leading OEMs and tracks the relationship maps of these OEMs across their extended supply chains (EMS, ODM component suppliers) to address the critical questions referenced below.
Who builds for an OEM? Where do these contract manufacturers build? What are the share splits of these contract manufacturers for an OEM?
What are the key outsourcing strategies of leading OEMs? Why are an OEM’s design / manufacturing activities insourced or outsourced?
How do these outsourcing strategies dictate the design and manufacturing relationships across the supply chain? What are the outsourcing trends?
How might the evolution of contract manufacturers impact OEMs and component suppliers?
What should I know about my peers’ competitive positions in order to better penetrate and service OEMs and contract manufacturers?
