B2B Points to Growth for Printed Circuit Boards

printed circuit boards sales

The PCB industry is constantly fluctuating, as manufacturers and assemblers work to fill the needs of device makers. As such, it is not surprising to see times when overall orders for printed circuit boards are down. Despite shipments in North America falling two percent year-over-year in January, the industry’s book-to-bill ratio points to potential growth over the next few months. The ratio, which is calculated by dividing the value of orders booked over the last three months by the value of sales billed during that period, remained positive at 1.01. Along with other industry value indicators, the fact that the B2B ratio is above one continues to give hope for a period of growth for PCB manufacturers in the months ahead.

How to Get the Printed Circuit Boards You Need

When working on a tight deadline, the most important thing is to be able to get the printed circuit boards you need. In addition to speed, you also need to ensure high quality so that your application can work as designed.
