US Automation and Electronics Industry Feels the Heat of Competition from Global Markets Such as Asia Pacific

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on April 18th, 2007

The automation and electronics industry is one of the leading manufacturing sectors among all the industrialized and industrializing countries. Due to its pervasive applicability, this industry is strongly linked to macroeconomic conditions. The developments in this industry affect other end-user industries such as consumer electronics and computers. Over the years, the production base of electronic components and semiconductors has shifted from developed countries in North America and Europe to emerging ones in Asia Pacific and Latin America. Low labor costs and unsaturated markets, combined with steady economic recovery, have made the Asia Pacific region attractive to semiconductor manufacturers. With some of the world's fastest growing economies such as China and India, Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit rapid growth in demand for electronic components and applications in the future.

The United States, which has been the world leader in technology and market size in both manufacturing and automation, has begun to feel the heat of the competition from global markets such as the Asia Pacific. Industry participants will need more than just the Government's policies and other incentives to deal with this situation, considering the rising business costs.

To retain its supremacy in areas such as R&D and high technology, the United States has kick started initiatives such as the Focus Center Research Program (FCRP). The FCRP conducts basic research in crucial areas such as system design, interconnects, circuits, devices, nanomaterials, and nanodevices. Additionally, the American Competitiveness Initiative will increase federal investment in critical research, and has committed to double investments, over ten years, in key federal agencies that support basic research. The Government has also made R&D tax credits permanent to boost R&D in the private sector. Other programs aimed at vitalizing the manufacturing sector include instituting a manufacturing council that provides manufacturer's access to Government decision makers, a study of the costs of regulatory compliance, and measures to curb countries that indulge in unfair trading practices or violate intellectual property rights.

Frost & Sullivan's Automation and Electronics Country Industry Forecast service provides vital inputs for evaluating the attractiveness of a country and its automation and electronics industry. Besides enabling decision makers to assess the impact of non-market forces, it also helps in identifying new market opportunities. This service provides a strong base for preparing contingency plans. In addition, investors can assess industry-specific risk factors as well as conduct in-depth micro research.
