English term or phrase: which would relegate them to a wholesale component
“The biggest worry for all network service providers is the propensity of multinational corporations [MNCs] to choose systems integrators for their outsourcing or out-tasking needs, which would relegate them to a wholesale component,” says Hibbert. “It would be death to Infonet if that happened on a large scale.”

现在看来, 指 their outsourcing or out-tasking needs 的可能性最大,将他们的外包需求托付给一个批发部分.

THEM = Multinational Corporations [MNCs]


Explanation:
Infonet is a value-added communication service provider, where MNC is not.

By using system integrator, MNC will also be able to provide “value-added” services, and hence become a competitor to Infonet.

Therefore, THEM means MNC.
