Electronics Industries Market Data Update (Spring 2012) This quarterly business report brings together the latest market data from many segments across the supply chain. Covering metals, solder, chemicals, assembly equipment, laminates, PCBs, EMS, end-product industries and macroeconomic trends, it offers readers a comprehensive view of industry dynamics. Every issue includes leading indicators to help readers plan for changes in their business environment.
Companies in the PCB and EMS industries currently have the opportunity to participate in IPC’s annual industry trends studies. Survey participants will receive the study reports at no charge.

  • PCB fabricators in the Americas are invited to participate in the PCB surveys at Survey access codes are 275 for rigid PCBs and 276 for flexible circuits. The survey deadline is extended to June 1.
  • EMS companies worldwide can participate in the EMS surveys at Survey access codes are 278 for the Americas, 279 for Europe, and 281 for Asia. The deadline is June 8.

The surveys also ask for your company ID number, which helps to ensure the confidentiality of your data. If you don’t know this number, contact Ms. Piyamart Holmgren.
