PCB market in October 2015

Ocober 2015 turnover for German PCB manufacturers decreased by 1.7 percent compared to October 2014, reported the German industry association ZVEI PCB and Electronic Systems.
Cumulatively, the decrease amounted to 3.6 percent. However, it must be noted that a fire destroyed an entire factory at a manufacturer in December 2014. This has been rebuilt and the first turnover figures will be reported in the coming months.

Order intake exceeded - for the second month in a row - last year's comparable figures by more than 20 percent. October saw an increase of 20.2 percent (following the 21.8 percent increase reported for September). However, overall figures (YTD) for 2015 are 2.6 percent lower than those reported for 2014.

The book-to-bill ratio reached a value of 1.02.

The number of employees declined - sequentially - only slightly in October 2015. Compared with the same month last year, employment figures increased by 2.3 percent.
