Download Our Top Global Distributors Report!

The global distribution industry in 2017 experienced a level of growth it hasn’t seen for years. Component shortages, which worsened toward the end of the year, set the stage for robust demand in 2018.

Most distributors experienced double-digit growth in 2017, driven by increased electronics content in automobiles; ongoing development in the IoT; AI; cloud storage; and continued demand for PCs and smart phones. Expectations for 2018 remain high, although component shortages are beginning to stifle growth.

The complete Top Global Distributors report includes rankings, by revenue, of the world’s largest electronic component distributors; North America’s Top 50 Distributors; and a new ranking of independent distributors. The report also includes analysis of global market trends; distributor profiles; and perspectives from distributors themselves.
