IPC announced today the June 2022 findings from its North American Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Statistical Program. The book-to-bill ratio stands at 1.03.
Total North American PCB shipments in June 2022 were up 17.1 percent compared to the same month last year. Compared to the preceding month, June shipments rose 26.3 percent.
PCB year-to-date bookings in June were down 4.1 percent compared to last year. Bookings in June increased 14.4 percent from the previous month.
“Shipments in the PCB sector are improving, suggesting supply chain challenges might be abating. Shipments are up 10.4 percent over the last three months compared to a year ago,” said Shawn DuBravac, IPC’s chief economist. “Orders appear to be stabilizing at a high level. Orders are off 1 percent over the same period, but up 23.6 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels.”
