IPC announced today the July 2020 findings from its North American Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Statistical Program. The book-to-bill ratio stands at 1.0.
Total North American PCB shipments in July 2020 were up 10.1 percent compared to the same month last year. Compared to the preceding month, July shipments fell 15.7 percent.
PCB bookings in July fell 9.4 percent year-over-year and declined 36.5 percent from the previous month.
“We’ve seen very strong order growth the last five months which may lessen naturally as demand decreases, but we expect shipment growth to continue into the fall,” said Shawn DuBravac, IPC’s chief economist.
Note: The December 2019 ratios have been revised since their original publication due to updated data from statistical program participants.
