This is a comprehensive list of the top electronics companies and electronic component suppliers in the USA and globally. Electronics is a very broad category covering everything from consumer level goods, to industrial and laboratory devices, to military equipment, to the individual components used to produce each of those devices. Component electronics encompass a range of products as well, including LCD screens, battery chargers, electrical control systems, electrical components for the automotive industry, computer hard drives, bluetooth transmitters, and more. Below we have compiled lists of the top electronics manufacturers in the United States and worldwide to aid you in your supplier search.

Types of Electronics Manufacturers
Electronics devices are typically built by a vertical collection of companies in the supply chain. For example, basic components such as capacitors and resistors are manufactured by one type of company. These components are then purchased and can be used to produce a higher-level electronic assembly, such as a computer hard drive, built by another company. The hard drive is then purchased and used by yet another company to build products such as laptops. It is not unusual for an electronic device to include components from dozens of companies and supply chains that are located around the world.
