IPC EMS and PCB Statistical Programs for Members Now Open for 2019
BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, January 14, 2019 — IPC’s statistical programs for the printed circuit board (PCB) and contract electronics manufacturing (EMS) industries in North America are now open to new participants for 2019. The deadline for IPC members to sign up is February 1. Participation is free to IPC-member companies as a benefit of membership.
The statistical programs give participating companies access to timely market and management data that would be impossible for them to collect themselves and prohibitively expensive for individual companies to obtain from research firms. As a neutral and trusted third party, IPC collects sales, orders and other business data from the participating companies using a secure and confidential online survey system. In exchange, these companies receive the aggregate data monthly and comprehensive quarterly reports that reveal the latest market trends for the industry, as well as financial and operational benchmarking data.
Participating companies use the data in their marketing, sales, planning and financial activities. It helps them to track changes in their market shares, compare their business performance to industry averages within their size tiers and product segments, and identify growing and declining markets.
These statistical programs have been running for decades. Participants are both public and private companies of all sizes, including many of the region’s leading PCB and EMS companies. Details about these and other IPC statistical programs is at www.ipc.org/StatPrograms.
IPC members interested in participating this year can sign up by contacting IPC at email@example.com or by phone at +1 847-597-2868, by February 1.
