The Survey Said: Industry Optimistic After Strong 2017


Reading time ( words)

During recent trade shows and conferences, we spoke with a variety of fabricators and assembly providers. They had one thing in common: Every company achieved strong growth in 2017, and shared a positive outlook about the future. This year, the industry is optimistic, driven by positive economic outlook, growing customer demand, and new technologies and vertical markets, among others.

Our recent survey on industry optimism reflects this trend, with more than 80% of respondents feeling optimistic about the trends happening in our industry right now.

The survey is part of our upcoming issue on megatrends, which will focus on how technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, quantum computing, and the Internet of Things are impacting PCB design, manufacturing and assembly. Watch for it!
