In a recent report by GlobeNewsWire.Com, Global Market Insights, Inc reported in their research that the electronic manufacturing services sector is expected to reach $650 billion by 2024. This global industry growth is spurred by the exponential demand for consumer electronics and devices such as smartphones and tablets. The US market alone dominates global electronics manufacturing with the country’s demand projected to surpass the $70 billion mark by 2024. This has resulted in the lightning fast growth of various electronics manufacturing companies. The resurgence of manufacturing jobs returning to the US or coming to the US for the first time has also increased in recent years which is good news for the jobs market in the industry. This re-shoring of production and manufacturing opens up numerous job possibilities in the years to come.
