The move to transfer volume manufacturing to lower cost locations has had a major impact on the US electronics industry. From the peak in 2000 electronics production was 39.5% lower in 2015 although over the last five years the industry has been relatively stable with the underlying trend for output edge down marginally. 2015 saw electronics output decline by an estimated 1.6% and followed a modest increase of 0.8% in the prior year. A further decline is expected in 2016 on the back of on-going uncertainties in the global economy, in particular in some of the emerging markets. In 2015, the US was surpassed by China as both the world’s largest market 10 years after China had replaced the country as the largest producer. The US, like Europe is now focused on the production of low-volume products in the control and instrumentation, medical, automotive, industrial, defence, high-end computing and communications segments. Over the medium term these sectors are projected to achieve low to medium-digit growth.
