LONDON, February 24 /PRNewswire/ --

- Frost Sullivan to Host Analyst Briefing on Electronics Manufacturing Market in Bulgaria on Tuesday, 3 March 2009 at 14.00 GMT

Bulgaria offers a great potential for growth of electronics manufacturing and contract manufacturing services. However, high inflation rates have been a cause of concern, especially amidst the economic slowdown impacting Bulgaria's growth as a potential hotspot in the latter half of the last year. Electronics manufacturers look forward to a positive turnaround with more market opportunities in the country in the second half of 2009, thanks to the Bulgarian government's support.


Frost Sullivan will host a live briefing open to all on Tuesday, 3 March 2009 at 14.00 GMT, to provide industry participants with an overview of Electronics Manufacturing Market in Bulgaria.

Highlights of the briefing include: macroeconomic analysis, separate market segment analysis for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) markets, revenue forecasts for the market segments, and also a 360 degree view of the market from the supplier and the end user perspective.

This briefing will benefit Surface Mount Technology (SMT) equipment suppliers, electronic component manufacturers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) companies, as well as Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs).

The Bulgarian government has decided to lower investment thresholds and offer more incentives to electronics manufacturers investing in high unemployment regions in the country. These economic reforms in the wake of the economic slowdown have been an attempt to lower the impact of this crisis on the Bulgarian economy. Hence, Bulgaria is expected to be one of the largest avenues for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in South-East Europe in the coming years, observes Harish Natesan, Research Analyst for Frost Sullivan Electronics Security group.
