The Difference Between OEM and ODM
Though many people often confuse the two terms and use them interchangeably, they certainly do not mean the same thing. OEMs build products based on designs provided to them from customers, while ODM manufacturers design some or all of the product themselves before manufacturing them for customers.
Original Equipment Manufacturer
An OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) builds a customer’s product that is fully designed by that customer and then contracted out for manufacturing.
Original Design Manufacturer
ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) is also referred to as private labeling or white label products. In this case, the manufacturer has an existing product design and the customer may make slight changes to sell it under their own brand name. Some examples of changes include branding, colors, or packaging.
