Electronics Sourcing Research Report - NPI Innovation Imperative


Electronic component sourcing is unlike any other commodity. Fast update cycles, changing consumer demand, and the ‘new normal’ work environment due to COVID-19 means sourcing decisions must be increasingly nimble.

To better understand NPI (new product introduction) innovation drivers and impediments, Supplyframe sponsored a Dimensional Research online survey of 217 OEM decision-makers with responsibility for sourcing electronic components at companies with 500 or more employees.

Key research report insights include:

  • Collaboration with engineering has a direct impact on business and innovation
  • Sourcing systems do not support collaboration and innovation
  • NPI is often delayed and launched with high costs
  • COVID-19 creates even more imperatives for innovation
Excellence in sourcing and connecting NPI processes across the design-to-manufacturing is more important than ever. Read this research report to identify areas where your organization could improve most.
