Top 50 EMS Providers Listed for 2009

Burlington, VT (PRWEB) April 7, 2010

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. To make the Top 50, providers needed a minimum of $ 190 million in sales for 2009, down from the prior year’s cutoff of $ 209 million.

“For the first time since 2005, a provider could make the Top 50 with less than $ 200 million in sales. To those who value a spot on the Top 50, this was some good news that came out of the global recession,” said John Tuck, editor and publisher of Manufacturing Market Insider ( “The bad news was that sales decreased last year for a large number of Top 50 providers.”

Sales of the Top 50 EMS providers for 2009 totaled an estimated $ 134.4 billion. For the 49 companies that provided sales for 2009 and 2008, aggregate revenue declined by an estimated 14.9%. Without the contribution of the largest provider, Hon Hai, sales would have fallen by 21.8%.

MMI Top 50 providers were ranked based on 2009 sales in U.S. dollars. In order, the top ten were Hon Hai, Flextronics, Jabil Circuit, Celestica, Sanmina-SCI, New Kinpo Group, Venture, Elcoteq, Benchmark Electronics, and Plexus. A top-ten ranking required $ 1.59 billion in revenue, down from $ 2.06 billion in 2008.

A majority of the Top 50, or 32 providers, listed 2009 sales under $ 500 million. Furthermore, 17 companies were bunched between $ 220 million and $ 285 million.

In addition to ranking providers by 2009 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 2010 edition of MMI.
