Popular component distributors

India is yet to become a manufacturing hub for components, and this has been one of the major factors for the country lagging behind on the manufacturing front. Today, the country imports about 80 per cent of its components for the electronics industry, pushing the cost of manufacturing to a higher level and ultimately raising the cost of the end products. However, the nation has a strong base of distributors of electronics components—both domestic players and MNCs, making the market very competitive with a large number of domestic and international brands in the fray. In fact, this competition has given Indian manufacturers a number of distributors to choose from. Electronics Bazaar carried out a survey and contacted EMS companies and other manufacturers, to find out the popular component distributors in India. These manufacturers have shared with us their preferences of component distributors based on credibility, reliability, product quality and after sales services. The survey clearly indicates that while Arrow, Avnet, Element 14 (formerly Farnell), Digi-Key, Future and Mouser are the most preferred distributors amongst MNCs, Electronika, Amar Radio, Ramakrishna, Saini, Rabyte, Formax and RS Components have emerged as the most popular domestic distributors. However, 31 other companies were also preferred by the manufacturers for sourcing their components. Interestingly, while the manufacturers felt that some of the leading distributors in India are MNCs, they preferred sourcing their components from the local distributors, citing price factor as the main reason.
