European EMS Trends – The EMS (Eric Miscoll Show) with Zollner and in4ma
It really was a stellar 2022 for the European industry with double digit growth enjoyed by most of the bigger players, but what can we expect in 2023?
In this informative session Eric and Philip are joined by Zollner AG Board Member Markus Aschenbrenner and Industry Analyst and Guru Dieter Weiss of in4ma to dig into the numbers and uncover the trends behind them. The watchwords for 2023 seem to be ‘cautious optimism’ and a need for ‘agility’ supported by a solid cash position. Markus underlined the importance of open and collaborative communications with both customers and suppliers. The European industry will have to navigate more stormy waters and an unpredictable economic outlook, geopolitical pressures, and more disruption in the supply chain, all while managing the challenges of talent and parts shortages throughout the organization. Has digital transformation helped mitigate these issues, or is the lack of automation post SMT an issue that still needs addressing. Eric and Philip ask this question and many more, including the current state of the component supply chain.
