In the five years to 2015, revenue from the Circuit Board and Electronic Component Manufacturing industry is expected to increase; however, this increase indicates only the industry's rebound from 2009 and masks the declines the industry has faced since 2011. Accelerating offshoring activity has led to lower domestic production, while strong competition from international operators has increased the industry's import penetration. During the five years to 2020, the industry is expected to experience similar trends from the past five years. Manufacturers will continue to relocate abroad and a strong dollar will encourage greater imports. Additionally, manufacturers are forecast to lower prices to remain competitive.
Companies in this industry primarily manufacture electronic components (except semiconductors and related devices), such as printed circuits, circuit boards, capacitors, transformers, connectors and switches.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
