Electronic Components Sales Sentiment Slips in May ECST but Sustains Solid Positive Sentiment –
Robust Q3 Growth Expectations
ECIAs Electronic Component Sales Trend (ECST) May 2024 Survey Results

Atlanta — The May ECST survey results from ECIA reveal a notable slip in sales sentiment as the May index saw a loss of roughly 70% of the gains achieved in April. Despite a drop of nearly 12 index points, the overall score still registered a solid 112.3 and delivered the fourth consecutive month of positive overall sales sentiment.

“Survey respondents expect the sales environment will claw back a significant amount of lost ground in June to reach an index score of nearly 120,” explained ECIA Chief Analyst Dale Ford. “While the May results are certainly not what had been hoped for and projected in the April ECST survey, the ECST survey results still point to a solid start for Electronics Component sales in the first half of 2024 with fairly consistent, month-to-month improvements for six months following a low of 77.8 in December.”
