Weiss Engineering

Welcome to in4ma (information for manufacturers)

the reliable data source for the European EMS industry

we are redesigning this homepage, sorry for any inconvenience 

The European EMS Industry

 For the past 15 years Weiss Engineering has analyzed the EMS market, first in D-A-CH only, since 2015 for all of Europe. The current Database has today 2154 entries of EMS companies in Europe, each individually analyzed. The 2018 revenues of these EMS companies add up to 42.1 Billion Euro (~49.7 Billion USD), a growth of 9% to 2017. 

These numbers do not include the Maghreb states, neither do they include pure cable harness manufacturers, pure electro-mechanical manufacturing service companies or social workshops for the handicapped (there are about 40 in Europe). The "heart" of the in4ma EMS statistics is exclusively the printed circuit board assembly.

in4ma is the brand for the EMS statistics of Weiss Engineering.

See "EMS Europe" for more details.

The new annual analysis of the balance sheets and P&L of the German EMS industry in different revenue categories will be available shortly. This paper will be available in German and English.

This study is a good basis for benchmarks for EMS companies but as well for OEMs to benchmark their internal PCBA production.

See "Reports" for more details.

in4ma at SMTconnect

We see a strong need for the European EMS industry to have a leading EMS exhibition, which is affordable by medium sized companies as well. SMTconnect has developed this concept and offers the EMS industry in Europe a professional exhibition focusing on Electronics manufacturing services / contract manufacturing.

Next SMTconnect will be 5. to 7. May 2020, Nuremberg/Germany.
