    July 5, 2017, Benin Island, Illinois, USA - IPC - International Electronics Industry Connect Association ® today released the "May 2017 North American PCB industry research statistics report". The report shows that sales and orders in May were lower than the same period last year, and orders shrank to push orders to 1.05.

    The total shipments of North American PCBs in May 2010 decreased by 3.1% compared to the same period in 2016; shipments from the beginning of the year to the previous year were 4.3% lower than the same period last year. Compared with the previous month, May shipments fell 26.7%.

    Report details

    "May North American PCB industry research report" will be published next week. The report details the sales volume of rigid PCBs and flexible PCBs, the amount of orders and their respective order shipments, the growth of different companies, and the growth of military market, the demand for molds, and other important real-time data The Participants in the survey can obtain the report free of charge.

    Data interpretation

    Order shipment ratio is obtained by participating in the IPC research project sample company in the past three months by the amount of orders divided by the same period of sales, the ratio obtained. The ratio of more than 1.00, said the current demand exceeds the supply, indicating that in the next three to six months, sales will grow to the trend of development. If the ratio is less than 1.00, it means that the current supply is greater than the demand.

Ring data due to its cyclical and short-term changes in the impact of factors that need to be treated with caution. Compared with the shipping data, the order data changes more, month and month order shipment ratio change, it is not so important, unless there is a continuous trend for more than three consecutive months. Exploring changes in orders and shipments is just as important as understanding changes in order shipments.

    IPC's monthly PCB industry statistics comes from local data provided by regular rigid and flexible PCB manufacturer sample companies in the US and Canada.
