Archives:Review of the Competitive Status of the United States Electronics Industry
This article represents the view of American competitiveness in electronics as of the early 1990s. The best metric for competitiveness assessment is world market share, the authors argue. The United State's share of world electronics markets decreased steadily throughout the 1980s, with entire electronics sectors such as consumer electronics almost vanishing from U.S.-based and -owned manufacturing facilities.
