Circuit overload: A strong dollar will encourage imports and burden industry exports

The Circuit Board and Electronic Component Manufacturing industry produces inputs that are essential in the downstream production of electrical items. As a result, demand for industry products is often tied to production levels and demand from downstream industries. Over the five-year period to 2017, demand from downstream manufacturers remained volatile, with revenue declining for the majority of the period. Similar trends are expected in the five years to 2022 as manufacturers continue to relocate abroad and a strong dollar encourages greater import volumes. Additionally, domestic demand is expected to rebound as the US economy continues to grow. Due to these factors, imports are expected to rise steadily....purchase to read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • The industry has shifted production to overseas plants that offer more competitive labor costs
  • As imports continue to sustain a commanding share of demand, exports have conversely declined
  • Profit margins will come under pressure due to continued import competition and rebounding input prices
  • Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

    Over the five years to 2017, revenue for the Circuit Board and Electronic Component Manufacturing industry is expected to decline at an annualized rate of 0.7% to $43.5 billion. Industry demand is typically determined by production levels in electronic equipment, appliances and computers, all of which require circuit boards and electronic components as inputs. In turn, demand for these products is affected by broader economic factors such as consumer confidence and per capita disposable income. Although the economic recovery has increased demand for electronics, it has not been enough to reverse the industry’s decline. Accelerated offshoring activity has led to lower domestic production, while strong competition from international operators has limited domestic manufacturers’ options. Con...purchase to read more.
