N.A. PCB Business Growth Flat in 2014
"PCB business in North America was virtually flat in 2014 compared to the previous year," said Sharon Starr, IPC's director of market research. "Sales ended the year less than one percentage point below 2013, while orders finished the year just 0.6 percent above 2013. Strong orders in the fourth quarter have kept the book-to-bill ratio solidly in positive territory, which bodes well for sales growth in 2015."
