Technology / Semiconductor / Top distributors 0 comments

(P.S: Sorry for any disturbances the advertisements above may have caused you)
For distributors, 2005 was a so-so year. And the slowing of the global electronics market, led by the US downturn, appears to spell more gloom for the industry.

The main distributors have been trying to diversify their revenue from a North American-centric to a global business structure. Growth for supply chain and fulfillment services in North America and Europe has been mired in the single digits, while business in Asia has been growing at 20 percent-plus. But while Asian growth is strong, the percentage of total business derived from this region of the world remains modest for most of the top-ranked distributors, with the exception of Taiwan-based World Peace Group.

The stratification in performance is why more detailed figures of geographical segment breakdown below for the top distributors. Due to the size of the spreadsheet, it is broken down into two figures:
Part 1

Part 2

* Products include: semiconductors (s), passives (p), interconnect (i), electromechanical (e), batteries/power supplies (b), computer systems and peripherals (cs), other (o). Where provided percentages refer to percent of total revenue

**Services include: contract manufacturing (cm), logistics, bill of materials management (bom), kitting and subassembly (k), design services (d), systems integration (si), vendor managed inventory services (vmi), testing (t), programming (p)
