IPC: Global Economic Recovery is Picking Up Speed, but Risks Remain


Reading time ( words)

The global economic recovery is picking up speed, but there remain risks. The global economy should grow roughly 5 percent in 2021, driven by growth in the United States and China. The world’s two largest economies are seeing accelerated growth. The United States should see first quarter growth eclipse 6 percent (seasonally adjusted annual rate), led by additional fiscal stimulus and the broad lifting of COVID-related restrictions. Monetary policy remains accommodative, which should help to further growth. Finally, consumer and business confidence is roaring back, as vaccination rates increase and consumers appear anxious to spend. The United States is set to grow 6.3 percent during the year.

In this month’s economic outlook report from IPC, you will find U.S. and European data on economic growth, employment, Manufacturer’s Sentiment (PMI), manufacturing capacity utilization and end markets for electronics.

Don't Blink: The IPC APEX EXPO Time-lapse

01/31/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
It’s a tradition here at I-Connect007 to set up a time-lapse for IPC APEX EXPO. There’s something satisfying, mesmerizing even, to watch the show floor build out and see the moment when the doors open and visitors fill the exhibit hall. Based on what others have said over the years, I know I’m not the only one whose favorite part is when the carpet gets rolled out and the whole character of the exhibition changes. This time lapse starts on the Saturday prior and continues through the Thursday tear-down phase.

IPC APEX EXPO Wrap-up

IPC APEX EXPO 2023 is over, and I think it was successful show no matter how you slice it. There was barely a break in traffic on the show floor on Tuesday and Wednesday, and even on Thursday I saw people sprinting to close one more deal. Some committee meetings had nearly 200 participants; the meetings I sat in on were anything but boring.
