ECIA Announces New Research on the Value of Authorized Partners 

Texas A&M University research quantifies the value delivered by the authorized channel for components.

ECIA is proud to publish an updated study, "The Value Delivered by Authorized Channel Partners for Electronic Components", which delivers a model and value analysis of authorized distribution and independent manufacturers’ representatives for electronics component manufacturers. ECIA members and staff worked with a team of professors and graduate students from Texas A&M University’s Global Supply Chain Laboratory to conduct research and publish the new report. Texas A&M was selected for this project based on their ability to bring an independent perspective to the topic, the analytical capability they have developed with a highly recognized program dedicated to supply chain research, and their previous experience on the team conducting the original study.

The Report Foreword is available to all for reading. The full report and report summary are available to ECIA members only. Members can log in to view.
