New Electronics Industry Market Data Now Available by Subscription

Jul 05, 2016

IPC is introducing three new quarterly subscription reports. These exclusive reports provide electronics manufacturers a competitive edge that comes from having solid, timely and reliable market research data. Reports include:

  • Global Solder Market Report -- The report covers trends in solder and flux consumption, including growth rates, tin/lead vs. lead-free ratios, and industry growth outlook for coming year. It will also be available soon in Mandarin Chinese.

  • PCB Assembly Equipment Market Report -- The report includes trends in the equipment market, growth rates, and industry outlook for the coming year.

  • Global Process Consumables Market Report -- The report shows growth rates in the wet chemistry market and industry growth outlook for the coming year.

These reports are based on IPC’s current industry surveys. This means the information subscribers receive is built on reliable data gathered from representative samples of companies. Combining the latest data with insightful graphs, these special reports help electronics industry executives identify opportunities, understand trends, and plan for changes in the business environment.

The value of these reports is the unique quality of the data, which is collected directly from the industry by IPC and is not available from any other source,” said Sharon Starr, IPC director of market research.

The three quarterly reports are in addition to PCB and EMS reports based on statistical program data from North American companies that manufacture and assemble PCBs: the monthly North American EMS Market Report, the monthly North American PCB Market Report and the quarterly North American EMS Business Performance Report. Annual subscription prices for a one-year single-user subscription are $600 (IPC members) and $1,200 (nonmembers) for most of these reports.
