Top 10 U.S. Electronic Components Manufacturers

Posted by IndustrySelect on Tuesday, February 9, 2021



Electronic components are critical to U.S. industries. In fact, average sales approached $303 billion last year, making up 1.5% of all manufacturing sales.

MNI's data on the electronic components industry can help you get a handle on this lucrative market.

Current Events

In 2021, purchasers can expect to pay more and wait longer to receive the parts they need. While buyers fear shutdowns due to the coronavirus, rising prices of copper and other metals, as well as ceramic capacitors, will also challenge supply chains.

Semiconductor shortages particularly concern the automotive industry. With the combination of a recovery in vehicle sales and production constraints, demand outstrips supply.

Additionally, vehicle manufacturers face global bottlenecks. While semiconductor producers attempt to increase capacity, they don’t expect buyers to see the effects for six to nine months.

The Vital Statistics

Currently, the electronic components industry employs 207,337 people, displaying a .65% growth over last year.

Manufacturers of electronic components also show a slight edge in diversity. Women own 3% of companies as compared to the 2% of U.S. manufacturing as a whole. They similarly lead in minority ownership with 3% versus 1%. Public ownership predominates at 11% compared to 5%.

At 58% versus 29%, the international distribution of electronic components is nearly twice as high as that for all U.S. manufacturing. Competition to obtain these products is worldwide. Just over one-fourth (26%) of companies in this industry also import raw materials, compared to the 11% of U.S. manufacturing altogether.

The geographic distribution of electronic components manufacturers is as follows:

• Midwest 24%
• South 24%
• Northeast 25%
• West 28%

Manufacturers of electronic components embrace large segments of U.S. manufacturing. Familiarity with the leaders in your sector is essential to securing the parts you need. The following listings highlight these specializations.
