US SHARE OF WORLDWIDE ELECTRONICS PRODUCTION FELL

Citing figures from the Electronic Industries Association of Japan, the American Electronics Association now says that the US share of worldwide electronics production fell to 39.7% in 1987 from 50.4% in 1984 while the Japanese share rose to 27.1% from 23.1% over the same period and that of Europe rose to 26.4% from 23.5%, although that figure masks a decline, because the European share hit 27.6% in 1986; the newly industrialised countries of the Far East saw their 1987 share hit 6.8%, from 4.9% in 1984.
