North American PCB industry sales up 6.0% in April
Total North American PCB shipments in April 2021 were up 6.0% compared to the same month last year. Compared to the preceding month, April shipments fell 18.1%.
PCB bookings in April fell 10.2% year-over-year. Bookings in April decreased 27.8% from the previous month.
