Learning from Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic and electronics manufacturing – these are the results

From mid-September to early October, we surveyed almost 450 electronics manufacturers around the world online. How has the pandemic affected the companies? What short-term protective measures were taken? What is planned in the medium term to make manufacturing more crisis-proof and resilient?
Our study report has the answers.

No entry

Only one fifth of the companies will in future be receiving visitors to the same extent as was the case before the crisis. This is a challenge for partners and suppliers in terms of communication. Those who want to stay close to their customers need new solutions.

Suppliers are expected to provide online and remote expertise in the future

More than just video conferencing: The majority of the companies surveyed are increasingly demanding online services from suppliers in the future - including online training and remote services.

Means of choice for more resilience: Driving automation

The pandemic is accelerating megatrends such as automation and digitization. For example, 3 out of 4 companies (in China as many as 4 out of 5) are planning to use increased automation to achieve more resilient and more flexible production processes.
