 1992 FIRST NINE MONTHS U.S. FACTORY SALES OF ELECTRONICS
 TOTAL $209 BILLION; UP 5.3 PERCENT
 /ADVANCE/ WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. factory shipments of electronics equipment, components and related products totaled nearly $209 billion for the first nine months of 1992, representing an increase of 5.3 percent over the 1991 first nine month total industry sales of $198.2 billion, according to preliminary figures released today by the Electronic Industries Association (EIA).
 In announcing the statistics, EIA President Peter F. McCloskey stated, "The sales of computers and peripherals have been the driving force behind our industry's growth thus far for 1992. Despite the defense cutbacks and a slowing of industrial equipment hurt by slow overseas demand, we have good reason to be optimistic for continued overall industry growth for the remainder of 1992 and a potentially stronger 1993."
 A breakdown for the 1992 first nine months of U.S. factory sales by industry indicates the telecommunications equipment sector increased 9.8 percent from $25.6 billion in 1991 to $28.1 billion the first nine months of 1992.
 Other communications(A) related devices totaled $21.8 billion, down 7.3 percent from the 1991 first nine months figure of $23.5 billion.
 Electronic components shipments totaled $43.3 billion, up 3.5 percent from the 1991 year-to-date total of $41.8 billion.
 The computers and peripherals sector reflects the highest increase of 15.1 percent from $37.5 billion in 1991 to $43.2 billion in 1992 year-to-date.
 The industrial electronics sector grew slightly from $18.1 billion during the first nine months of 1991 to $18.4 billion for the same time in 1992, showing an increase of 2 percent.
 Electromedical equipment grew 3.4 percent from $5.6 billion in 1991 to $5.8 billion for the first nine months of 1992.
 The U.S. consumer electronics sector increased to $7.5 billion during the first nine months of 1992, 15.8 percent above last year's figure of $6.4 billion.
 Sales of other electronics related products and services tallied $40.8 billion, increasing 2.7 percent over sales of $39.7 billion reported in last year's first nine months.
 For more than 68 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.
