For the last six years, in4ma has build up a reputation of helping the European EMS industry with reliable market data and analyses. Since last year we have started a crowd funding of the in4ma work in order to be able to cover some of the cost involved in such a thorough market research.

Today we have 40 EMS companies, which support the in4ma work with a small payment in order to keep this work going and to further enhance it. We are still looking for further sponsors and we promise you it does not hurt.

In present we are running the European EMS annual survey again, and this time we have written to EMS companies in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, France, Hungary, Denmark, United Kingdom, Spain and Finland.

Even though we are not delighted with the percentage of companies responding so far, we can only ask you to rethink. Never have reliable figures for the European Market been so important as in times of Corona. The more companies participate (and participation is free of charge!) the better the market overview. The analyses will give you reliable data to compare and benchmark your own performance with that of the market and your competitors. Last year 155 EMS companies with a accumulated revenues of 7.6 billion euro participated in the survey, this year we want to top this again.

If you have not received an E-mail from in4ma with the survey form so far, just write a short note to weiss@in4ma.de and it will be sent to you. Many EMS companies responding positively remarked on the latest in4ma interviews in EMSNow. Thank you for all your positive remarks. We will keep up our work and hope for even more support in the future.
