The new and one-of-a-kind marketplace serving electronic component manufacturers, distributors, raw material suppliers, designers and buyers within the interconnect, passive and electromechanical (IP&E) ecosystem is now live at http://www.IPEMarketplace.com.
Designed and launched by BBG Enterprises Inc., the parent company of Electronics Purchasing Strategies magazine, and developed by New Angle Media on its proprietary wynd™ software platform, IP&E Marketplace is the only global community and marketplace devoted to IP&E. Its mission is to bring together companies and professionals—designers, manufacturers, distributors, purchasers, supply chain managers and logistics professionals—involved in the design, development and sale of interconnect, passive and electromechanical components across the electronics manufacturing industry. Dozens of industry suppliers and distributors are expected to join in the coming months.
“According to market forecasting company BCC Research, the global market for passive and other interconnecting electronic components is expected to grow to $213.5 billion by 2017, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.4% between 2012 and 2017,” said Bolaji Ojo, CEO of BBG Enterprises. “Despite the size of the market and the critical role IP&E components play in consumer, industrial and automotive electronics, this market segment remains underserved. We aim to change this by enabling all players to effectively engage with each other within a single dedicated community.”
The next-generation content marketing featured on IP&E Marketplace allows the entire community to interact with one another via the platform itself.
For example, purchasers and designers can engage directly with suppliers and distributors and place orders for samples and production quantities.
Further, community members can comment on the latest news, provide feedback on recent educational webinars, offer insight on industry trends, and share everything through social networks.
Community members can also access supplier and distributor profiles, webinars, videos, technical papers and other resources.
“IP&E Marketplace aims to empower, inform and connect the community of professionals working in electronic design, manufacturing and supply chain management by providing critical resources and tools unique to their jobs,” Ojo added.
