IPC North American EMS and PCB Statistical Programs Open


Reading time ( words)

IPC’s North America statistical programs for the rigid PCB, flexible circuit and contract electronics manufacturing (EMS) industries are now open to new participants for 2017. The deadline for IPC members to sign up is February 3. Participation is free to IPC-member companies as a benefit of membership. 

The statistical programs give participating IPC members access to monthly market 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, backlogs and other business and technical data from the participating companies using a secure and confidential online survey system. In exchange, these companies receive monthly aggregate data revealing the latest growth and market trends for the industry. Aggregate data are segmented by product categories and by company size tiers. 

Participating companies use this monthly data in their marketing, sales, planning and budgeting activities. It helps them to track changes in their market shares, compare their performance against industry averages in their size tiers and product segments, and identify growing and declining markets. These statistical programs have been running for decades and include many of the region’s leading PCB and EMS companies. 

To ensure consistent survey samples for the year, participants must commit to completing every monthly survey for 2017. Participants’ data are due by the 15th of every month. IPC members interested in participating this year should contact IPC at marketresearch@ipc.org or by phone at +1 847-597-2868, by February 3.
