IPC Releases PCB Industry Results for February 2022

IPC has announced the February 2022 findings from its North American Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Statistical Program. The book-to-bill ratio stands at 1.16.

Total North American PCB shipments in February 2022 were up 12.8 percent compared to the same month last year. Compared to the preceding month, February shipments rose 8.9 percent.

PCB year-to-date bookings in February were down 12.6 percent compared to last year. Bookings in February fell 5.9 percent from the previous month.

“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine exacerbates already strained electronics supply chains,” said Shawn DuBravac, IPC’s chief economist. “February showed strong PCB shipment growth, a hopeful sign that supply chain dynamics will steadily improve.”
