The 2015 Top 50 Electronics Distributors
The largest electronic components distributors reported a solid 2014, and many are optimistic that 2015 will bring much of the same, according to Global Purchasing’s newest Top 50 Electronics Distributors report. The optimism is driven by improving global markets and the proliferation of electronics in all aspects of daily life.
Although the traditional rapid pace of electronics industry growth has slowed considerably in recent years, many distributors are heartened by customers’ demand for more—and better—ways to connect, sense, and automate everything from cars and medical equipment to factories and home security systems. Helping design engineers access the latest components and information to achieve that goal remains distributors’ most important task—and one they say is increasingly driven by the need for better information technology systems, faster access to information, and the ability to “touch” customers in more and more locations around the world.s
