Latest analysis on EMS Europe

In my last presentations, I have repeatedly mentioned that France is still a grey area. The number of EMS firms in the in4ma statistics for France have never matched the number of companies published by the French electronics association SNESE. As of January 2019, SNESE reports that there are 488 EMS companies in France with sales of more than 4.5 billion euros.

To this end, I would like to thank SNESE for the great confidence to provide me with all the lists of all the details for my work.

I have understood in the past that the criteria for drawing up the list are different from my criteria, since, for example, companies that do not have a homepage or generate less than 100,000 euros in annual turnover are not included in the in4ma statistics. This alone brings the 488 companies in the SNESE list to 378 companies, nevertheless a significant difference from the previous 191 companies in the in4ma list. It will be a few months before the analyses are completed and the results of these analyses will be presented at the next EMS Day ( on June 18, 2020 in Würzburg. Today, however, it can already be said that the number of EMS providers in Europe could rise to about 2200 EMS (legally independent units) and 1911 companies. Stay on the ball and occasionally look in here to stay up to date with the latest information.
