After declining for three consecutive years between 2012 and 2015, in part due to weak demand from the defence and security sector but more importantly the completion of the transfer of production for a volume customer at Jabil's manufacturing plant in Scotland, UK EMS revenues posted growth in both 2016 and 2017 a trend which is forecast to continue in 2018.
Based on current indicators we expect year on year growth throughout the period to 2022 although this will be clearly influenced by the UK's exit from the EU in 2019. With negotiations on-going and with no signs of an agreement being reached in the next few months uncertainties will persist and which could subdue demand in the short-term and could result in UK EMS revenues slowing in the second half of 2018.
The Top 10 companies accounted for 33% of revenues in 2016 and based on provisional figures for 2017 their share is expected to fall to 32%, primarily due to the scaling back of production at Jabil's manufacturing plant in Scotland during the year. This is in marked contrast to other countries in Western Europe. In France around 72% of the market was controlled by the Top 10 in 2016, 48% in Germany and 58% in the Nordic Countries.
