Printed circuit board (PCB) sales in 2013 ended the year down 1.9% from 2012, according to IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries. The book-to-bill ratio in December improved slightly, but remains below parity at 0.92.

December 2013 saw total North American PCB shipments grow 2.2% compared to December 2012. While year-to-date shipment growth of -1.9% was negative, the organization said it has been steadily improving. December sales were up 6.6% over November 2013.

North American PCB bookings fell again in December to -8.0% year over year, which reduced the year’s order growth to -1.1% below 2012. December bookings jumped 17.7% over the prior month.

“North American PCB sales in December continued their slow recovery, while orders have been volatile,” said Sharon Starr, IPC’s director of market research. “In the current cycle, the book-to-bill ratio appears to have hit its low point in November and is now beginning to climb again.”
