Four IPC Global Statistical Programs Now Open

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, March 11, 2015 — IPC’s global statistical programs for the laminate, solder, process consumables and assembly equipment industries are now open to new participants for 2015. The deadline for IPC members to sign up is April 15. Participation is free to IPC-member companies as a benefit of membership.

The statistical programs give participating IPC members access to global quarterly market data that would be impossible for them to collect themselves and prohibitively expensive for individual companies to obtain from research firms. As a neutral and trusted third party, IPC collects sales and other business and technical data from the participating companies using a secure and confidential online survey system. In exchange, these companies receive quarterly market reports showing aggregate sales and growth rates for the industry, segmented by detailed product categories and by region.

Participating companies use this quarterly data in their marketing, sales, planning and budgeting activities. The data helps them to track changes in their market shares, compare their performance against industry averages in their regions and product segments, and identify growing and declining markets. Current participants in these programs include most of the world’s leading producers.

The laminate and solder statistical programs are conducted in English and Mandarin Chinese. In addition to shipment data, the solder program also tracks worldwide consumption of lead-free versus tin/lead solder, and the use of SAC alloys. The process consumables program is conducted in English and Japanese. It covers dozens of product categories in plating materials, final finishes, solder mask and other imaging processes, developers and strippers. The assembly equipment statistical program tracks sales in units and value. It covers specific product categories under the headings of pick-and-place, inspection, test, soldering and dispensing equipment, as well screen printers, ovens, stencils and software.

The first-quarter 2015 surveys will go out on April 1. To ensure consistent survey samples for the year, participants must commit to completing all four quarterly surveys for 2015. IPC members interested in participating in the statistical programs for their industries may contact IPC at Email Contact or by phone at +1 847-597-2868.
