Boston, December 03, 2013 – Driven by tight IT budgets and regulatory uncertainties, the EMS market has remained largely static over the last few years, awaiting a return of market volume. Recent spin-offs and bankruptcies appear to signal a new phase in the EMS market, however—one that refutes brokers and vendors waiting around for market volume as a realistic strategy. For EMS vendors supporting the market's transition into the actively traded electronic world, such changes might be a reality check resulting in new strategies for survival, among them expanding globally, developing non-equity functionality, and building analytics.
This Impact Report examines key trends driving the prospect for EMS market growth and highlights a select list of vendors and brokers that are actively competing for market share. It is based on November 2012 to October 2013 Aite Group surveys of and interviews with 13 EMS vendors.
