DUBLIN, 24 May 2010. New avenues have opened up for the world electronics manufacturing service (EMS) provider market in the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry, reveals a new report from Frost & Sullivan available from Research and Markets. “With traditional markets declining, EMS providers are diversifying into markets such as A&D, where opportunities are proliferating despite the current economic slump,” says a spokesperson.

“Although yearly defense budgets are likely to witness minimal yet steady increments in the coming years, the focus on defense modernization and technologically advanced warfare will keep the prospects for EMS providers upbeat. There is a pressing need for upgrading conventional military systems and weaponry and the demand for increasingly agile, accurate, network-centric systems and also real-time communication capability is on the rise.”

Research and Markets has added Frost & Sullivan's new report, "World EMS Provider Market in the Aerospace and Defense Industry," to its offering.

"The development and production of such systems and transformational electronics has provided a boost for OEM outsourcing in the A&D industry and OEMs are increasing reliance on EMS providers for printed circuit board (PCB) fabrication and sub system assembly," notes the analyst of this research service. "Moreover, as the trend progresses, they are expected to outsource increasing levels of product development and production processes.

"The nature of operating in the A&D industry is significantly different from other traditional and commercial EMS markets. EMS providers face complex manufacturing requirements, very high quality requirements and low to ultra low volume production demands," says the analyst. "Apart from this, EMS providers must also obtain comprehensive certifications and security clearances as well as maintain extensive documentation and traceability."

Frost & Sullivan analysts examine the following market sectors in this research:
EMS
Defense
Commercial aerospace
Technologies
The following technologies are covered in this research:
RoHS
RFID
