For rigid PCBs and flexible circuits combined, industry shipments in July 2010 increased 25.2% from July 2009, as orders booked increased 33.9% from July 2009. Year to date, combined industry shipments were up 18.7% and bookings were up 33.4%.

“We are still seeing double-digit year-on-year growth rates for both rigid PCBs and flexible circuits as of July,” said IPC President & CEO Denny McGuirk. “July is typically a slower sales month than June, but sales are strong. The most encouraging indicator is the book-to-bill ratio, which continues solidly positive for the 15th consecutive month. That is a sign of continuing strength in sales for the remainder of the year.”
