1991 U.S. ELECTRONICS FACTORY SALES TOTAL $271 BILLION, UP 2 PERCENT;
 U.S. EXPORTS UP 7 PERCENT TO $71.6 BILLION
 /ADVANCE/ WASHINGTON, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. factory sales of electronic equipment, components and related products totaled a little more than $271 billion for 1991, resulting in a 2 percent increase over the 1990 total sales of $265.6 billion, according to preliminary data released today by the Electronic Industries Association (EIA).
 The association also reported that U.S. exports of electronics products reached $71.6 billion for 1991, representing a nearly 7 percent increase over last year's exports of $67.0 billion.
 In announcing 1991 statistics, EIA President Peter F. McCloskey stated, "Virtually all of the growth in the U.S. electronics production is based on the strong performance of our electronics exports."
 A broad breakdown of total U.S. factory sales follows.
 The components sector sales were up 2.2 percent from $55.2 billion in 1990, to $56.4 billion.
 The telecommunications manufacturers hit $35.2 billion in 1991, or a 6.2 percent improvement over the $33.1 billion produced in 1990. The other communications products sector lost 4.1 percent from $34.1 billion in 1990 to $32.7 billion in 1991.
 Electromedical equipment improved 7.5 percent, going from $7.0 billion in 1990 to more than $7.5 billion in 1991.
 The U.S. consumer electronics sector produced $7.1 billion worth of goods, or 11.6 percent over the $6.4 billion produced in the United States in 1990.
 Other related products and services scored $55.4 billion in 1991, or 7.4 percent over the $51.6 billion produced in 1990.
 Two important sectors declined slightly during 1991 including the computer and peripherals sector declining 1.7 percent to $52.4 billion from $53.3 billion in 1990.
 The industrial electronics sector declined 2.5 percent from $25.0 billion in 1990 to $24.3 billion.
 Imports of foreign electronics products reached approximately $76.8 billion, or 7.2 percent over the $71.7 billion imported in 1990.
 The deficit in the electronics trade balance was $5.2 billion, or 11.1 percent more than the $4.7 billion calculated in 1990.
 For more than 67 years the Electronic Industries Association has been the national trade organization representing U.S. electronics manufacturers. Committed to the competitiveness of the American producer, EIA represents the entire spectrum of companies involved in the manufacture of electronic components, parts, systems and equipment for communications, industrial, government and consumer-end uses.
