Assembly Equipment Statistical Program

The global Assembly Equipment Statistical Program is open to IPC-member assembly equipment producers worldwide. The quarterly reports present the aggregate data on sales in both units and value. The data are segmented by region and product category.

Product categories covered in the surveys include screen printers; ovens; AOI, x-ray and other inspection equipment, test equipment; dispensers; selective, wave and hand soldering equipment; board handling and other equipment; as well as stencils, screens and software. In addition, the survey for the Americas also covers pick-and-place equipment, including chip mounters, multi-function and all-in-one machines.

Surveys open the first week after the quarter's end and are due by the 21st of that month. Reports are published as soon as all participants' data are collected. The target date for publication is the end of the month.
