IPC Webinar: The U.S. Economic Outlook in a Post-Pandemic World


Reading time ( words)

The abrupt halt of so much economic activity has pushed the U.S. and global economy into recession. Uncertainty continues to build as demand wanes, output drops, and unemployment rises. While all sectors of the economy have been impacted, some are feeling the downturn more acutely than others.

On May 21 at 1:00 pm EDT, IPC will host a free webinar, “The U.S. Economic Outlook in a Post-Pandemic World.” IPC Chief Economist Shawn DuBravac will examine the impacts of COVID-19 on the U.S. economy and the prospects for an economic recovery in the coming months.

Specifically, the webinar will explore and take a deep dive into:

  • Possible recovery scenarios and what they mean for the electronics manufacturing industry
  • The latest economic data, trends, and risks
  • IPC's current economic outlook and near-term forecast

Throughout the weeks and months to come, stay tuned for more webinars and online activities being brought to you by the IPC Government Relations and Industry Intelligence teams. Please join our IPC Advocacy Team—the “A Team” of electronics industry advocates—to receive weekly updates and stay in the loop.

Leading companies in the electronics manufacturing industry are highly intentional about their environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities, with climate change and energy use among the most closely scrutinized issues, an IPC analysis shows. As part of IPC’s ESG for Electronics initiative, IPC is interested in developing resources for members on the most common ESG methods and priorities of leading companies across the electronics value chain. In support of this, IPC has preliminarily analyzed the ESG reports of approximately a dozen companies in selected portions of the industry.

It feels like the first day of school. It’s September, and we’re all officially back at our desks, workstations, or kitchen tables. Even Les Vacances is over. Oui, c’est vrai! But instead of facing new teachers, we have to deal with diverse market forces, supply chain issues, and technology that never seems to stop evolving. Of course, that’s what makes this industry so interesting, isn’t it?
