Shenzhen- ASPENCORE Double Summits, organized by the world’s leading media group within the technical electronics sector, closed in Shenzhen, China today with key stakeholders in the electronics industry supply chain participating in the Global Distribution & Supply Chain Leader Summit in person and via live broadcast. The 2018 Global Electronic Component Distributor Awards presentation ceremony held in the evening honored 51 outstanding distributors and supply chain service providers and named Mr. Hongzhi Sha, President of Nanjing Sunlord Electronics Co., Ltd., Executive of the Year.
Yorbe Zhang, Head of ASPENCORE APAC, said, “Good components distributors act as an important gear in the machine of innovation and the key to supply chain management optimization for manufacturers. ASPENCORE's Electronics Supply & Manufacturing-China (ESM-China) launched the Electronic Component Distributor Awards program in 2001 to honor outstanding distributors for their remarkable performance and positive contributions to the electronics industry. This year, the Awards program extends worldwide, and winners of the Top 10 International Branded Distributors were selected by an international judging panel and through online voting across the world.”
The global business environment is changing. Trade frictions cloud the economic outlook, and trade war between China and the US may escalate. Fewer mega mergers and acquisitions in the semiconductor industry are expected, although smaller-scale ones continue. In China, two e-commerce giants – Ali and JD.com – have joined the component distribution sector, as integration of local distributors continues. This year’s Summit focuses on how to seize business opportunities under these new circumstances. Some of the presentation topics are:
- The driving force for changes in the distribution industry
- Digitization and platform-based technologies
- Digital transformation of the supply chain
- Semiconductor e-commerce and supply chain innovation
- IT systems – empowering distributors
- Development of China’s EV/HEV industry and opportunities for distributors
- IC technology transfer and design ecosystem in China
- AI + IoT for the future
The Summit ended with a roundtable discussion on distribution industry trends under the new business environment.
