Weiss Engineering

Welcome to in4ma (information for manufacturers)

the reliable data source for the European EMS industry 

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 1834 entries of EMS companies in Europe, each individually analyzed. The 2017 revenues of these EMS companies add up to 36.1 Billion Euro (~40.78 Billion USD), a growth of 2,8% to 2016.

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.

 Latest Report

 The new annual analysis of the balance sheets and P&L of the German EMS industry in different revenue categories is now available. This paper is available in German only.

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.


Most of you readers want as much information as possible and for free. I don't need your money, but if you don't support my work and buy my reports I might loose interest. The outcome is only negative for you, not for me. You will have to go back and make decisions based on stomach feelings rather than facts about the EMS industry or buy these crystal bowl reports from people who call themselves competition.
