Improving operating and product margins is still important to our clients; however, with global industry growth settling into the 6% range through 2016, our clients are exploring opportunities to improve top-line revenue growth. Establishing or expanding operations closer to new customer bases in Asia, EMEA, and Latin America has generating substantial gains. At the same time, innovation and product development are gearing up to offer products in higher growth product categories such as 3D printing, health and fitness devices, smart appliances, and ultra HD television. Demand for mobile connected devices is still strong but revenue growth is beginning to slow. We have also seen considerable success in revenue growth by implementing changes to our clients' pricing management practices.
For any of our clients' top priorities, Accel brings a unique perspective and focus on bottom-line results. We have first-hand experience working across the entire electronics value chain — from semiconductor to box-build and finally to software and services. We have worked with our clients' suppliers and customers. Second, we only hire and staff engagements with experts that have worked in the electronics industry and who know the technology and operational levers.
