The global electronics manufacturing services (EMS) market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years as vendors are increasing their focus on introducing new and more efficient technological solutions. Moreover, these requirements will be more beneficial for vendors that offer open architecture and user-friendly products. However, the EMS industry declined significantly in 2015 due to the declining sales of PCs (desktop and notebook). As a result, many EMS companies have started opting for supplier profile studies to develop a superior supplier operational and functional capability matrix.
