1992 U.S. ELECTRONICS FACTORY SALES TOTAL $287 BILLION, UP 6 PERCENT; U.S. EXPORTS UP 6 PERCENT TO $77.3 BILLION

 /ADVANCE/ WASHINGTON, March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. factory sales of electronic equipment, components and related products totaled nearly $287 billion for 1992, resulting in a 6 percent increase over the 1991 total sales of $271.4 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 $77.3 billion for 1992 representing a 6 percent increase over last year's exports of $72.9 billion.
 In announcing 1992 statistics, EIA President Peter F. McCloskey stated, "We are pleased with the growth of U.S. factory sales, as well as our strong performance in exports, despite sluggish European and Asian economies."
 The following is a broad breakdown of total U.S. factory sales.
 The components sector sales were up 5.5 percent from $56 billion in 1991, to $59.1 billion.
 The telecommunications manufacturers hit $40 billion in 1992 or a 13.8 percent improvement over the $35.2 billion produced in 1991. The other communications products sector lost 7.9 percent from $32.2 billion in 1991 to $29.7 billion in 1992.
 Electromedical equipment improved slightly, up 3.3 percent, going from $7.5 billion in 1991 to $7.8 billion in 1992.
 The U.S. consumer electronics sector produced $10.1 billion worth of goods or 12 percent over the $9.1 billion produced in the United States in 1991.
 Other related products and services moved up slightly to $55.9 billion in 1992, or 2.2 percent over the $54.7 billion produced in 1991.
 The computer and peripherals sector rose 13.2 percent over the 1991 figure of $52.4 billion to $59.3 billion in 1992.
 The industrial electronics sector moved up slightly $24.9 billion in 1992, up 2.2 percent over the $24.35 billion in 1991.
 In the area of trade statistics, exports reached $77.3 billion, a 6 percent increase over last year's figure of $72.9 billion. Imports of foreign electronics products reached approximately $88.3 billion or 14 percent over the $77.4 billion imported in 1991.
 The deficit in electronics trade was $11 billion in 1992, compared to a deficit of $4.5 billion in 1991.
 For 69 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.
