Asia-Pacific goes from 20 to 47%

Over the past 20 - probably 30 years - we have seen a progression for electronics manufacturing shifting from high to low cost regions.
In 1995, three-quarters of all the value was produced in high-cost regions; such as USA (27%), Japan (26%) and Western Europe (21%), states Peter Brent during TEC 2013 in Lund - presenting data from Reed Electronics Research.

The chart shows rather graphical that we seen - not a complete - but almost a complete reversal of this. In 2009, less that 50% of the value was produced in high-cost regions: USA (dropped to 16%), Japan (dropped to 12%) and Western Europe (dropped to 14%).

In contrast, during this period, low cost regions gained a significant portion of the manufacturing value. Asia Pacific (from 20% up to 47%) and CEE (from 1% to 3%).

In Asia-Pacific, China went from 3% production value to 28%.
