Charts: European EMS downturn continues
There is no sign so far that European EMS industry reduced the growth gap to 2008 during the third quarter of 2009.
This year's third quarter is better than the second quarter; however, that was the case last year as well. In the first 9-month period we are still down approx. 25% on 2008. The conclusion is based on data from the EMS providers that publish their Q3 figures. Sweden is on par with the first 6 months, Finland is marginally better, but Norway significantly worse. In Belgium, only one of the two EMS companies publishes Q3 figures. Source: www.pildal.com Image Source: Optronic
