This paper views the economic situation for electronic component manufacturers worldwide, focusing particularly on those in Europe. It notes that recovery will proceed at a greatly varying pace, not only from one country to another but also based on sector or company‐specific factors. It also states that, in future, consumer goods of all kinds – primarily mass‐market electronic products – will be produced almost without exception in China and south‐east Asia.
