Selling Circuits Short: Improving the prospects of the British electronics industry

Stephen L. Clarke & Georgia Plank, August 2012

Selling Circuits Short is a wake-up call for the government. Using data from leading market research firms, Selling Circuits Short shows that the British electronics sector is at a crossroads. The industry is in a good position to take advantage of growth in the markets where it is a dominant force but this will not happen unless the government addresses the challenges facing the sector.
