The electronics manufacturing industry is undergoing a change. For the past two decades off-shoring was a highly desirable way to achieve lower costs. Today, many companies are considering re-shoring for their product needs.
What is re-shoring? Simply put, it is the reversal of off-shoring and the sourcing of electronic product needs locally. The immediate benefit of this is reduced import costs, shorter lead times due to faster react times, eliminate possible waste and instability caused by off-shoring, and reducing intellectual property and regulatory compliance risk.
The most attractive reason for off-shoring was the operational flexibility of China and low labor and operational costs. This is no longer the case with rapidly rising costs, the attractiveness of purchasing from Asia is not what it once was.
