The European Electronics Association EIPC will be hosting a presentation about the European EMS Industry at Electronica’s PCB & Components Marketplace in Hall B4/365 on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 from 9:30 to 10:00 a.m.

Early birds have a chance to get a glimpse of the European EMS Statistics under the in4ma Program and an overview of the performance within the D-A-CH region in specific. Managing directors of EMS companies will get to see the latest numbers about the market, some information about the balance sheet analysis of 170 EMS companies and judge themselves how and where they are positioned.

This presentation gives an overview of a part of the EIPC Workshops EMS, which were held in September and October in five different Regions within Germany. The last of this series of workshops is coming up at Würth Elektronik in Niedernhall on November 21, 2016, and is already fully booked out.

The World Electronic Circuits Council (WECC) is a strategic partnership formed in 1998 by the major industry associations serving member companies in the global electronic circuits industry. Its purpose is to increase the global influence and effectiveness of its member organizations for the benefit and improvement of the industry. The member associations cooperate on standards, market research, marketing, resource development, environmental issues, world trade, and economic and political affairs.

The member organizations of WECC formed a working group in 2005 to pool their statistical resources and produce a global statistical report on printed circuit board (PCB) production for the benefit of their members. This group became the WECC Statistics and Market Committee.
The following associations and their representatives contributed to this report and are active members of the WECC Statistics and Market Committee:
• CPCA – Kevin Yan, Vice President, China Printed Circuit Association,
• EIPC – Kirsten Smit-Westenberg, Executive Director, European Institute of Printed Circuits,
• ELCINA – Anil Kumar Muniswamy, Executive Committee, Electronic Industries Association of India,
• HKPCA – Daniel Chan, Executive Director, Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association,
• HKPCA – Manda Wong, Administration Officer, Hong Kong Printed Circuit Association,
• IPC – Sharon Starr, Director of Market Research, IPC,, (committee chair)
