Electronics industry on the upside!
Walt Custer from Custer Consulting Group has summarized statistics from Eurostat showing Europe's electronic food chain growth for August.
The 3-month (3/12) growth "leads" the annualized (12/12) growth rate. Components & boards and wiring devices are all on the upside, see charts below. Some of the highlights in Custer's presentations included the continuation of the metal price increases which increases costs for Taiwan based component makers. Also Hon Hai (Foxconn) is increasing prices for Apple & others.
