Leading Indicators Suggest Stable Growth for 2011

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA - Economically, 2010 was a better year than expected in most parts of the world. Although Japan experienced exceptionally high growth in 2010, this was the year that China overtook Japan to become the second-largest world economy after the USA. There are now strong indications that most economies around the world have fully recovered from the 2008-2009 recession. Most electronics industry segments are still experiencing strong but slowing growth. Markets are returning to normal. Data on these trends in specific industry segments and regions is covered in the recently released winter 2011 edition of IPC's quarterly business report, Electronics Industries Market Data Update.

Most segments of the electronic interconnect supply chain worldwide posted double-digit year-on-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2010. PCB assembly equipment, laminate, electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and process consumables led the pack. Sales in most industry segments have returned to pre-recession levels.

In North America, the top performers in year-on-year growth for fourth quarter 2010 were PCB assembly equipment, flexible circuits and the EMS industry. The IPC Index of North American Electronics Industry Performanceİ, a composite of sales growth for major industry segments and leading economic indicators, shows the recovery cycle ending and a return to normal growth. The index for the fourth quarter of 2010 stood at 16.5, down from 31.0 in the third quarter, but still solidly positive.

Subscribers to the Electronics Industries Market Data Update also have access to an interactive graph built upon the index data and showing growth trends back to 2007. Users can add their own companies' quarterly year-on-year growth rates to the data table and see a line graph showing how their company has been performing in comparison to their industry segment as well as customer and supplier industries.
