Year-on-year sales growth across the global electronics supply chain was mixed in the second quarter of 2012, but is now moving in a positive direction, according to IPC's quarterly market report.

The latest quarterly IPC report said that reduced growth forecasts from China and continued worries about Greece reinforced concern about a global economic slowdown. While domestic growth in China is showing resilience, exports remained sluggish in the second quarter due to the slow recovery in the U.S. and contracting economy in Europe.

Leading indicators in North America show signs of stalled growth in the economy in the second quarter, but point to a resumption of modest growth in the second half of 2012.
