In the ranking of the top 100 electronic components manufacturers in China, EPCOS has moved up from the tenth to fifth place. If only manufacturers with comparable portfolios are counted, EPCOS remains the second largest manufacturer in China after the Hengdian Group DMEGC.

The rating is based on sales, profit, assets and export volume of the EPCOS plants in Hongqi, Wuxi, Xiaogan, Xiamen and Zhuhai. “The majority of the products manufactured here are exported,” said Konrad Beck, CFO of EPCOS Greater China. “At the same time, our shipments into the Chinese domestic market are rising continuously, which is strengthening our position in this fiercely contested market.”

The annual ranking is published by China’s Ministry of Information Industry (MII) and the Chinese Electronics Components Association (CECA).
