IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries has announced plans to develop a new statistical service designed to give members timely insight on the state of the electronics industry. IPC member-company executives are invited to help build this program by participating in an organizational meeting at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego on Thursday, February16.                                                                                                                                            

With the working title “Pulse of the Industry,” the new service will be a survey-based statistical program for the top executives of IPC-member companies in all manufacturing segments of the industry worldwide. The confidential surveys will collect data on key business measurements and activities that are important indicators of the health of the industry, both nationally and internationally. The resulting data will be available at no cost to the program’s participants. Additional expert analysis and insights will be available by subscription in a separate report.

“This is a great opportunity for IPC-member executives to get in on the ground floor and help shape this new program to meet their needs” said Sharon Starr, IPC director of market research. “We’re looking forward to working with company leaders on this exciting new initiative.”

The organizational meeting is open to all interested executives of IPC-member companies. It will be held at the San Diego Convention Center on February 16 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. For more information or to indicate interest in this meeting, IPC members should contact Starr at SharonStarr@ipc.org or +1 847-597-2817 by Friday, February 10.
