Electronics

The electronics sector has been on the rise in the Dominican Republic due to productivity growth, the great logistical services offered by some of our free zone parks, and our country’s talented workforce. The main products exported in 2018 included automatic circuit breakers, rotary switches, electric connectors, auto parts, relays, alarm systems, printed circuits, and transformers.

Local Presence

Currently, 22 electronic companies are operating under the Free Zones platform, generating more than 11,500 direct jobs, with an accumulated investment of $120 million USD. Electrical products and components manufacturing was the sector with the highest growth in 2018 with $1,150 million USD in exports, representing an increase of 17% compared to the previous year.

Workforce

The country’s technical training institute, INFOTEP, has alliances with the Free Zones to provide specialized training for any personnel of new and current international companies. This workforce development program ensures that personnel are equipped to perform the skills necessary to obtain a job in the electronics field. 

Specialization

Our companies have different capabilities ranging from intermediate component manufacturing to final product assembly, and include contract manufacturers and world prestigious brands (including Fortune 500 companies). 

Recently, there has been an emergence of automotive components concentration within the zones. Here, companies can have their final line assemblies closer to market, while taking full advantage of tariff preferences and tax structure. Opportunities exist in the Dominican Republic for the manufacturing of the automotive subsector given the presence of important inputs and raw materials such as electronics, plastics, and leather, which are established sectors in the Free Zones.
