IPC Invites Industry Leaders to Participate in New Global Data Service


Reading time ( words)

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries announces the launch of Pulse of the Electronics Industry, a new global data service that promises to generate valuable forward-looking data for the electronics industry. Developed in response to requests from IPC members, this service will provide timely insights on the current health of the industry and its future outlook.

The service will track sales growth each quarter and the industry’s forecast of next-quarter growth. It will indicate the current direction of key business indicators including orders, profit margins, inventories, backlogs, material and labor costs, access to capital and ease of recruiting. Findings will also reveal the industry’s expected direction of other key indicators in the next six months, such as production, markets, prices, exports, capital investment and workforce size.

“Executives at electronics manufacturing and supplier companies are invited to start taking advantage of this valuable service by participating in the inaugural quarterly survey. The survey is confidential, and it is brief and easy for company executives to answer. There is no cost to participate and all eligible participants who complete the survey by July 21 will receive a timely summary of the findings. Most important, they will be instrumental in launching a valuable new service that will benefit not only their businesses but the whole industry,” said Sharon Starr, IPC market research director.

Interested participants can visit IPCPulseQ32017 and complete the survey by July 21. They will be prompted to enter their company ID number, which is one of many tools IPC uses to protect the confidentiality of participants' data. Participants who need help with their company ID can contact Piyamart Holmgren, IPC market research coordinator at +1 847-597-2858 or PiyamartHolmgren@ipc.org.
