ECIA Releases Update 6 of Ongoing Component Manufacturer and Distributor Survey on Impact of COVID-19

Atlanta  –  ECIA has posted the synopsis of its most recent survey, which was conducted between Tuesday, April 28th and Tuesday, May 5th. Between the most recent survey and the previous survey that ended April 20th, governments in several areas have started to ease quarantine orders. However, conflict between governments, citizens and businesses has


resulted in some localized turbulence. A sense of urgency to reopen the economy continues to build and additional funding has been approved after the initial round of funding to support businesses, especially small businesses, was exhausted quickly. Common expectations continue to point to a deep and extended economic crisis as GDP reports reveal the painful impact of this pandemic on major economies around the world.

The survey report synopsis, including three charts from the full report, can be found at

The full report, available to members only, provides detailed data by component type for the major categories of: Electro-Mechanical; Passives; and Semiconductors. It presents data in 15 detailed tables and 24 figures.  In addition, this report presents indexes to provide a perspective on how sentiment has shifted over time.

ECIA recently released the results of a new survey of Manufacturer Representatives. These important players in the supply chain have struggled along with other small businesses around the country.
