Buyers Breakdown: IT Spending Drives Electronics Mfg

Electronics manufacturing reboots as work-from-home drives IT, and it might be here to stay.

Cortera, in partnership with Moody’s Analytics, uses their COVID-19 Economic Impact Tracker (CEIT) to provide a breakdown of purchasing data from thousands of companies in various sectors of the U.S economy. Every week, we sit down with Jim Swift, the founder and CEO of Cortera to discuss the tracker’s latest data and what it means to purchasing trends throughout the industrial marketplace. 

In this episode of the Industrial Buyer's Breakdown, Swift, along with editorial director Jeff Reinke, discuss the CEIT’s latest findings, including:

  • The emergence of some positive purchasing indicators in the consumer electronics and personal computing sectors.
  • How these trends are impacting other portions of these supply chains.
  • The geographic areas seeing some positive signs for manufacturing.
  • How e-commerce and work-from-home factors are helping push this key sector forward.
