Soldering and desoldering is a large and important part of the electronics industry, having application areas in almost all of its segments. Leading Brands Electronics Bazaar decided to conduct a survey to ascertain the leading firms of all the various soldering and desoldering categories. As most of these brands do not have a direct sales office in India, they are disseminating their products and services through qualified distributors who provide assistance and after sales services to buyers on the manufacturers’ behalf. We contacted 60 players of the industry and asked them who, according to them, are the leading players in the soldering/desoldering industry and came up with a list of top players. Leaders in the small soldering irons and stations category and in the large soldering stations domain are enumerated in the table below in alphabetical order. We hope our initiative will be beneficial and enjoyable for the readers of Electronics Bazaar.

Top LED players – 2009

Today, usage of light emitting diode (LED) is becoming increasingly prominent—be it in lighting, displays or other devices. The fact that LED has a good shelf life has encouraged manufacturers to use it despite the fact that it is priced higher than other alternatives available. Acknowledging the trend that aspires for new technology, Electronics Bazaar highlights some of the top LED manufacturers and distributors in India in an effort to help buyers and sellers identify the best available LED sources in the country. We interacted with more than 60-70 reputed stakeholders of the LED realm and came up with a list of 15 top players in the sector. Some players were averse to disclosing their revenues, so this time, players will not be rated, but will simply be enlisted in alphabetical order. The revenues which were shared with us, however, have been displayed. We hope that our readers find this article useful and that more players will participate in future ‘EBTop' ventures.

UPS and Inverter manufacturers:2009

‘EBTop 15 UPS and inverter manufacturers’is our attempt to enlist the best-performing companies in this domain with regards to their revenue. The power sector has been witnessing a very healthy growth over the last fiscal and this is distinctly reflected in the companys’revenues.We commenced this process approximately two months back, when we compiled the list of all major and minor UPS and inverter players and started contacting them. Some companies were quite eager to be part of this initiative, whereas there were a few who refrained from disclosing their revenues as it is against their company policy. This time, we have also made two separate lists of the strongest players in the UPS and inverter segments, respectively. We, at Electronics Bazaar, hope that more and more players will participate in this exercise in our future issues.
