Innovation & Progress

The electronics industry as a driver

With its cross-sectional technologies, the Electrical Industry is a driver of innovations and technical – and therefore also social – progress. The sector's wealth of inventions radiates outwards: The Electrical Industry is responsible for a third of the entire economic growth of Germany. The sector is also characterised by excellent competitiveness and a high level of system competence.

Being a "solution industry", the sector makes a decisive contribution to Germany's future competence and influences people’s individual and social lives. The ZVEI will therefore continue to present tangible solutions to future challenges, get involved with the value creation of tomorrow and cooperate in the creation of a regulatory framework, the aim of which is to secure international competitiveness and retain open markets.
