This IPC study is based on a 2012 survey of 229 North American electronics manufacturers, covering OEMs and all segments of the electronic interconnect supply chain. The findings show what types of operations were returned from overseas and what types of new operations were created in North America since 2009, as well as the industry's plans for returning more overseas operations and building new operations in North America in the next three years. The findings also address trends in domestic versus international sourcing. The analysis includes summaries of recent news coverage, reports and other surveys on this topic to provide a complete but concise look at the impact of on-shoring in North America and the outlook for the future. 54 pages.
