The high-tech industry, including consumer electronics, enterprise computing and networking, electronics components and cloud-computing providers, has been at the forefront of supply chain innovation for several decades. Before any other industry, high tech relied on a global network of suppliers, contract manufacturers, logistics providers and other partners to design, assemble, ship, sell and repair products. High tech was also one of the first industries to leverage e-commerce. For both the consumer and business markets, constant product innovation remains the driving factor in maintaining competitiveness.
