Combined rigid printed circuit board (PCB) and flexible circuit industry shipments in North America in May 2011 increased 1.1% and orders booked decreased 12.6% from May 2010, according to IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries. Year-to-date, combined industry shipments were up 4.9% and bookings were down 8.0%. Compared to the previous month, combined industry shipments for May 2011 decreased 0.4% and bookings increased 1.3%. The combined (rigid and flex) industry book-to-bill ratio in May 2011 climbed to 0.99.

Rigid PCB shipments were flat at zero percent growth and bookings were down 13.4% in May 2011 from May 2010. Flexible circuit shipments in May 2011 were up 14.0% and bookings were down 5.1% compared to May 2010.

“We are starting to see some improvement in the North American PCB book-to-bill ratio,” said IPC President & CEO Denny McGuirk. “Although it is still just under parity and we are seeing flat growth in rigid PCB sales, the flexible circuit side of the business is showing strong sales growth.”
