PCB Surveys and Statistical Programs

Rigid PCB and Flexible Circuit monthly Statistical Programs collect booking, backlog, and shipment data from PCB manufacturers in North America, including detail on sales to the military and medical markets and sales of prototypes. The monthly North American PCB Market Report is free to IPC members who participate.

Program participants also have the option of participating in a brief quarterly survey on capacity utilization, inventory turns and lead times. Participants in the quarterly surveys receive a quarterly report with the aggregate data.

Statistical program participation is free and open exclusively to PCB companies with one or more IPC memberships. Program participants must commit to providing data for one calendar year. Annual and biennial surveys for the PCB industry are open to both IPC members and nonmembers.

The statistical programs and surveys in the table below are open to participation by PCB companies. Clicking on the program/survey titles will show the questions in recent surveys.
