IPC’s January 2021 Economic Report: U.S. and EU Outlook

Economic Outlook banner

We are one month into the new year, and it is already abundantly clear that the next 12 months will remain challenging. But, if all goes according to plan, — something that rarely happens — 2021 will be a year of recovery. For the most part, financial markets have shrugged off what at times have felt like catastrophes in the near-term. Instead, they have focused on a more positive medium and long-run outlook. Here’s hoping that outlook materializes soon.

In this month’s report, you will find U.S. and European data on economic growth, employment, Manufacturer’s Sentiment (PMI) and end markets for electronics. You will also find details on industrial production, capacity utilization, PCB production data and North American PCB bookings.

Please let us know how you use this research along with what other details you would like to see from IPC.  We welcome your thoughts and feedback.
