Every year, the editors of Modern Distribution Management magazine (MDM) compile a special issue dedicated to distribution trends, which includes listings of top distributors in segments, including wholesale, industrial and electronics. This year, as in every previous year since 2010, Avnet has been ranked the top distributor in electronics.

The article, accessible to MDM subscribers, details the significant transformation Avnet has undergone in the previous year, with the sale of the Technology Solutions business to Tech Data, the acquisitions of Premier Farnell and Hackster.io and the corporate rebranding campaign rolled out in early 2017.

Additionally, Avnet CEO Bill Amelio is quoted in the report discussing the ongoing role and growing influence of the Internet of Things throughout the tech sector. “We're talking about a $20 billion to $30 billion dollar connective device world in the not too distant future. And we're right in the middle of that," he noted.
