Arlington, Va. — The monthly order index compiled by the Electronic Components, Assemblies & Materials Association (ECA) continued its upward movement in February, extending an industry comeback that began last fall.
ECA's 12-month moving index is up nearly 10 points in the last six months after being flat for much of the first half of last year.ECA has a full slate of industry conferences coming up where it can gauge industry momentum, beginning with CARTS 2004, the leading passive component technology conference and exposition, in San Antonio, Texas. Other events in the ECA lineup include the International Relay Conference (IRC), the Electronic Distribution Show (EDS), the Electronic Components and Technology Conference (ECTC), CARTS Europe, and the International Wire and Cable Symposium (IWCS). The Electronic Components, Assemblies & Materials Association (ECA) represents manufacturers and producers of passive and active electronic components, component arrays and assemblies, and materials and support services.
