Now in its 30th year, UBM’s Global Distributor Customer Evaluation Study puts a hand on the pulse of electronics distributors to shine a light on which distribution partners engineering, supply chain/procurement, and corporate professionals prefer and use. The study measures the brand strength and reputation of electronics distributors in North America, Europe, and Asia. The survey polled nearly 2,500 electronics industry professionals to get their take on five product categories: semiconductors, connectors/interconnects, passives, electromechanical devices and power. In addition, it looks at how today’s market prefers to consume information and research products via part search, online, and social media.
