Electronics Supply Chain

  • The electronics industry’s global supply chain has evolved over many decades in response to market demands and government policies. The growth of electronics manufacturing in Asia over the last 30 years led to gaps in the electronics supply chain in other nations.

  • IPC supports government initiatives to help grow the electronics supply chain in all countries.

  • IPC supports ongoing efforts to assess the U.S. defense electronics industrial base with the goal of identifying and addressing gaps in that supply chain.

  • IPC supports the establishment of long-term funding and policy direction for the U.S. Defense Department’s Executive Agent for Printed Circuit Boards.
