TPP-2016: Trade Agreements' Impact on the Electronics Industry
The United States government is in the process of potentially entering into trade agreements with various countries in Asia and Europe. These agreements are complex and non-uniform in their application to the countries engaged. This report summarizes many of the more salient points of both TTP and T-TIP, then discusses how these agreements might impact the various segments of the electronics supply chain: design, printed board (PCB), assembly, original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and suppliers to each of these particular segments. In each of these supply chain segments regional implications will also be discussed. The intent of this document is to allow executives, supply chain professionals, and operations professionals a quick reference to the pertinent issues and how those issues might impact their segment and regions they are engaged in.
