The ongoing trade war between two of the world’s largest economies is starting to affect electronics production, with the US output growing slightly faster than it did a year ago, and production in China slowing down.

According to Semiconductor Intelligence (SC-IQ), the first quarter of 2019 saw electronics production in the US growing an average of 6.2 per cent, when compared to the same quarter a year ago. The nation has seen 12 consecutive months of manufacturing growth at 5 per cent or higher.
