Leading component traders


Component traders play a major role in the electronics industry as most manufacturing needs depend on them. They help in providing a varied range of components and offer assistance in choosing the right components. Also, most traders are a one stop-shop for both active and passive components, and are always ready to help the manufacturers with their sourcing needs. In order to appreciate and encourage their efforts in the industry, Electronics Bazaar contacted a large number of industry experts and electronic associations, who shared with us their preferences and ultimately it led to this list of leading component traders.

We had started the process around two months back when we contacted trade associations to seek their opinion on the top trade component traders. After this, we got in touch with the major players in the trading field. While some were excited about the initiative, there were few reluctant ones. We are not ranking the component traders but simply listing them in alphabetical order.
