However, April 2017 had three working days less than the reference month 2016. Therefore, the industry closed three percent below last year, writes industry association ZVEI PCB and Electronic Systems.

YTD, the number of working days is the same for both years. Cumulatively over the first four months, sales figures increased more than five percent YoY.
