Total North American PCB shipments were up just 0.1% in May 2014 compared to May 2013, according to IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries. May results moved year-to-date shipment growth to -0.1%. May shipments were down 0.3% from April 2014.

PCB bookings fell by 18.0% year over year in May, pushing year-to-date order growth down to -8.1%. Order growth fell 14.3% from the previous month.

The North American PCB book-to-bill ratio dropped below parity to 0.98.

“While sales growth is slowing, declining orders pushed the book-to-bill ratio below parity after just two months of positive ratios,” said Sharon Starr, IPC’s director of market research. “This setback in the industry’s recovery is likely to be short-lived, given the positive economic outlook for North America this year.”
