North American PCB Industry Sales up 4.3 Percent in April
2020-05-29
IPC announced today the April 2020 findings from its North American Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Statistical Program. The book-to-bill ratio stands at 1.19.

Total North American PCB shipments in April 2020 were up 4.3 percent compared to the same month last year. Compared to the preceding month, April shipments fell 18.2 percent.

PCB bookings in April increased 19.9 percent year-over-year, but fell 7.3 percent from the previous month.

“North American electronics manufacturers continue to serve surging demand for PCBs and other components in the shadow of COVID-19. Bookings in April were up 15 percent, the strongest year-over-year growth in orders in over two years,” said Shawn DuBravac, IPC chief economist. “We expect elevated shipments in May as a result of strong bookings in April and a lingering backlog of unfilled ordered from prior months.”
