IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries®, Bannockburn, IL, has announced that IPC members will now have full access to market research reports created and commissioned by the IPC Executive Market and Technology Forum (Executive Forum) program that were formerly available to IPC members by subscription only.

“In today’s economy, associations are challenged to provide even more value to members,” said IPC President Denny McGuirk. “This new member benefit allows us to help our members in new ways. Our board of directors sees market research data as a critical tool to help companies in our industry manage their businesses. The board wants to make sure that they are available to all of our member companies.”

The IPC Executive Forum, formerly the IPC Technology Market Research Council (TMRC), was created in 1975 to provide IPC members with market data. “For many years, the TMRC mostly focused on the United States,” said Sharon Starr, IPC director of market research. “With the changes in the industry and our members participating in the global market, we’ve updated our market research offerings so more reports look at global trends and statistics.”

IPC members will have full access to the Executive Forum library through the IPC Members Only website, The library includes market research reports, proceedings from the Forum’s conferences and Supply Chain Tracker, a compendium of key current findings from the quarterly and monthly studies that IPC conducts for members.

In addition, selected Executive Forum presentations have been recorded and synchronized with the authors’ slides. These multimedia presentations are available at the IPC Members Only website as well.

“At a time when companies are finding it necessary to pull back on their resources, we are pleased to expand access to IPC’s extensive resources,” said McGuirk.
