BANNOCKBURN, IL — Total North American EMS shipments in October were up 14.9% compared to the same month last year and were down 2% compared to last month, according to the IPC's findings from its monthly North American Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) Statistical Program. The book-to-bill ratio stands at 1.29.

EMS bookings in October increased 7.8 percent year-over-year and decreased 1.5 percent from the previous month.

“EMS orders and shipments remained above trend in October, despite a small reversal relative to last month,” said Shawn DuBravac, IPC’s chief economist. “Supply chain constraints have eased but shipment growth remains slightly constrained as some ongoing supply chain issues persist.”
