German PCB market is booming in June 2010

The sales for German PCB manufacturers increased by 9% in June 2010, compared to May figures. If compared to June 2009, figures increased by 40%, reports the industry association ZVEI PCB & Electronic Systems.
The first half year ended with an increase of 33%. The weakness of the euro against the U.S. dollar supports the export in major segments; e.g. automotive industry and mechanical engineering. The solar segment is also showing strong demand, which has led to an uplift for the PCB industry.

The order intake in June decreased 20%, when compared to May 2010. However, the figures peak again for a June. Compared to June 2009, order intake increased by 110%. The same applies if figures for the 1H/2010 are compared to 1H/2009.
