Despite losing its position as the world’s largest market to China in 2015, 10 years after China had replaced the country as the largest producer; positive developments in the US will remain a factor driving growth in the global electronics industry. 2017 saw electronics output increase by an estimated 3.4% an improvement on the prior year’s modest decline of 0.6%. Growth in 2017 was supported by the recovery in the semiconductor segment on the back of a strong global market and to a lesser extent by modest growth in industrial, communications and passive components.
In 2018, electronics production is forecast to increase by a further 3.4% slightly weaker growth in semiconductors offset by stronger growth in industrial and communications. The move by US companies to “reshore” production has gained some momentum and could benefit from the trade policies being proposed by the Trump administration. However, at this stage there is a high degree of uncertainty with some observers expecting US companies to look to re-locate manufacturing to the market of consumption to avoid retaliatory tariffs.
