FARMINGTON, Conn., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The public continues to invest in wireless mobility products, prompting OEM suppliers to produce a wide range of cutting-edge, yet overlapping devices. This growth in demand for wireless mobility products is expected to evolve special product configurations ranging from high-end ultrabooks to simple e-reader devices. End-user markets and vertical applications will differentiate product models along the lines of medical automotive, aerospace and industrial applications.
Due to the ever increasing demand for electronics products, manufacturers have powerful incentive to develop new technological innovations and product iterations on a regular basis. This is starting to flood the market with so much product choice that it is blurring the distinctions between device segments.
Global Information Inc (GII) presents three optimal market research reports covering the global market for wireless mobility products and electronics manufacturing based on a cost of goods sold (COGS) point-of-view from our premium market research partner, New Venture Research.
Mobility Assembly Product Markets, 2012 Edition
The global cost of goods sold (COGS) market for all wireless products (including notebooks, ultrabooks, tablets, smartphones, traditional cell phones and e-readers) is estimated to reach an assembly value of $348 billion in 2012 – that's nearly one-third the assembly value of all electronics products manufactured worldwide.
Average assembly value of each electronics product is expected to decline by 1.2% CAGR over the next five years with smartphones suffering the highest decline and notebooks experiencing positive growth due to the introduction of ultrabooks. It is projected that by 2017, the total assembly value of all wireless mobility products worldwide will achieve $559 billion, or a 9.9% CAGR.
According to the report, the wireless mobility product assembly market will be led by many interesting OEM suppliers. First among them is Apple, which is probably experiencing its peak in terms of brand recognition and revenue in 2012. Samsung will represent the biggest threat as the company flexes its design and distribution muscles to make an equal or superior smartphone, tablet and possibly e-reader product. Another important player will be Google, which will be launching its own hardware products to capitalize on the search and advertising business. Amazon, a less than obvious powerhouse, is attempting to seed the market with low-cost e-readers that can eventually be upgraded to be computational and interactive. Suppliers that will face the most brutal competition include Acer, Dell, Huawei, Lenovo, Nokia, RIM and ZTE. While some suppliers may exit the market, one thing is for sure – demand for wireless mobility markets will be very strong over the next several years.

The Worldwide Electronics Manufacturing Services Market - 2012 Edition
The global market for electronics manufacturing services (EMS) continued to expand at a very healthy rate of nearly 13% in 2011. This was after an explosion of growth in 2010 of approximately 37 percent. The EMS market doesn't show any signs of slowing down and growth over the next five years will continue in the double digits. NVR believes that the EMS industry will grow from $413 billion in 2011 to $654 billion in 2016.
The report includes an EMS financial performance analysis and examines a variety of critical financial metrics for the best-performing companies. A chapter also details EMS mergers and acquisitions for the past few years and the impact on their growth of the industry. The report concludes with profiles of selected EMS and ODM firms (94 companies) from all over the world.

The Worldwide OEM Electronics Assembly Market - 2012 Edition
From a COGS perspective, the global market for electronics assembly was approximately $1.1 trillion as of 2011. The market is expanding rapidly but changing in composition both in terms of outsourcing partnerships and in-house manufacturing. Also, moves are being made annually with regard to the manufacturing country of origin based on total cost.
New Venture Research's Worldwide OEM Electronics Assembly Market is a peerless database that analyzes the 2011 electronics assembly market on a worldwide basis. It is developed by studying almost 300 leading OEM electronics companies in 49 different product categories and their manufacturing activities in 42 different countries. Moreover, the report examines the electronics assembly market by outsourced subcontractor versus in-house assembly by the OEM company.
