ODM is the abbreviation of Original Design Manufacturer, and the literal translation is "Original Design Manufacturer". ODM means that after a certain manufacturer designs a certain product, in some cases it may be taken by other companies, requiring the latter’s brand name to be used for production, or to slightly modify the original design and then go online.

The difference between OEM and ODM


1. The difference between OEM and ODM is not just the name. OEM products are tailor-made for brand manufacturers, and they can only use the brand name after production, and it is impossible to reproduce them under their own name. ODM depends on whether the brand company has purchased the manufacturer’s product copyright. If not, the manufacturer has the right to re-produce its own production, as long as there is no brand company’s design logo.


2. The copyright is different. ODM depends on whether the brand company has purchased the copyright of the product. If not, the manufacturer has the right to organize production on its own, as long as there is no corporate design identification. OEM is done by the manufacturer itself from design to production, and the OEM can buy it after the product is formed. Whether the manufacturer can produce the same product for a third party depends on whether the OEM purchases the design scheme.


3. The difference between OEM and ODM lies in who owns the intellectual property rights of the product. If the client enjoys the intellectual property rights of the product, it is OEM, which is commonly known as "foundry"; and if it is done by the manufacturer The overall design is ODM, commonly known as "OEM".
