ECIA’s January 2023 Electronic Components Sales Sentiment Sustains Momentum into January and Slightly Beats Expectation

ECIA’s Electronic Component Sales Trend (ECST) January 2023 Survey Results


ATLANTA – ECIA’s Chief Analyst Dale Ford has posted the latest results from the Electronic Component Sales Trends (ECST) January 2023 survey. “The new year rang in with encouraging results to begin 2023. Overall average sales sentiment jumped by 16.4 points from December’s reading as it climbed to 82.2 points,” he explained. “This result slightly beat expectations from the December survey by 2.2 points.”

This improvement in sentiment is mostly sustained in the February outlook as the overall index only drops by 4.3 points to 77.9. “The recovery of sales sentiment scores to this range for components and markets supports a soft-landing scenario in the market that has been anticipated by most electronic component supply chain participants,” Ford continued. “It is hoped that the sales sentiment can defend the gains achieved in recent months.”

The ECST survey provides highly valuable and detailed visibility on industry expectations in the near-term through the monthly and quarterly surveys. This “immediate” perspective is helpful to participants up and down the electronics components supply chain. In the long-term, ECIA shares in the optimism for the future as the continued introduction and market adoption of exciting innovative technologies should motivate both corporate and consumer demand for next-generation products over the long term.
