Electronic Components Sales Sentiment for August 2023 Sustains Improving Trend;
Q4 Outlook Sets Stage for Q1 2024 Growth
ECIAs Electronic Component Sales Trend (ECST) August & Q3 2023 Survey Results

Atlanta — The August sales sentiment for overall electronic component markets improved by 7.3 points over July to reach 90.3. This continues a trend of improving results that began in June. The outlook for September calls for the index to maintain this upward trend reaching 94.9.

Even though these scores are below the threshold of 100 that divides growing from declining sales sentiment, they are the best scores since February 2023 and an increase of 22.5 points from May 2023” explained ECIA Chief Analyst Dale Ford, author of the report. Hopefully, if the industry can sustain recent improvements, it is possible that sales sentiment for all categories could top 100 sometime in Q4 which would signal the potential for return to broad-based growth at the beginning of 2024.”
