We are familiar with retail products which we can purchase from stores, online in daily life. So maybe you wonder: What indeed the OEM for? Should you buy an OEM product? Is there any trouble that may be caused by OEM?
What does OEM mean?
“A company whose goods are used as components in the products of another company, which then sells the finished item to users.” This is a general definition of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
Let me explain it with a simple example: When we want to buy a PC, some of us will select the big brand, such as Apple, HP and Dell. These companies may buy processors from Intel and graphics cards from NVIDIA, then assemble them into pre-built PCs. In this case, Intel and NVIDIA are the OEM.
The package is the other way to identify OEM products. Because they're not designed to be on store shelves, so they don't need to look fancy and charming.
Therefore, we can say, the consumer is not the target customer of OEMs and most of them serve business clients.
Why select OEM?
The first reason to select OEM is the price. As we mentioned, the real consumer of OEM products is companies. Sometimes OEM will play the role of supplier during the business cooperation. For one thing, the product provided by OEM can be purchased in bulk at wholesale price. For another, a simple package (even no package) will reduce the cost dramatically as well.
What’s more, OEM is a good option if you want to create your own brand with the least research and manufacturing cost in an industry with many competitors. You don’t have to start from scratch, the OEM will provide the product with all main functions. The things you need to do is to add your creative idea and special design to it.
