Global Business Outlook Keynote at IPC APEX EXPO Highlights Economic Recovery

Press release date: March 3, 2011

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA - IPC Director of Market Research Sharon Starr's latest reports show signs of an uneven economic recovery in the electronics manufacturing industry with pronounced geographic and sector differences. She will co-present this industry data and more at the Global Business Outlook Keynote with noted industry analyst Walt Custer, president of Custer Consulting Group, on Wednesday, April 13, 2011, at IPC APEX EXPO(TM) in Las Vegas. "With some sectors leaping ahead and others struggling to maintain momentum, planning can be quite challenging," notes Starr. "Companies can't rely on generic industry growth statistics in this type of environment. Our keynote will present the latest data by type of business, sector and by geography, which provides invaluable indicators for the future." "We've named the speech 'Navigating the Recovery' because the environment is still quite difficult and competitive," says Custer. "Companies need to focus on profitable sectors and customers that provide real opportunities. Being able to take advantage of the recovery requires a lot of agility and insight. I think this hour will be very valuable for planning in the year ahead." Custer and Starr will provide forecasts and trends for electronics equipment and component markets and discuss how seasonal and cyclical trends affect the industry and the supply chain.
