What Is OEM and What Is ODM?
OEM is short for Original Equipment Manufacturing while ODM stands for Original Design Manufacturing.
OEM products tend to refer to products that are designed and manufactured to a company’s specification based on their requirements, needs, ingredients, etc. The products can be licensed to another company to be manufactured.
It can also be manufactured by an OEM company which will then sell the product to another company who is responsible for their distribution.
An ODM company is responsible for producing a product as per another company’s specification. ODM companies can also be described as private labelling, meaning that there is an existing company that already sells the product is selected, the company then makes a few changes and sells it under its brand name.
ODM companies’ workflow can be seen as a shortcut to market products as the company can save money on research and development as they don’t need to create a new product from scratch.
