NEMA’s Electroindustry Business Conditions Index (EBCI) for current conditions in North America edged above the 50 point mark typically associated with a stable business environment in March to 52.6. The gain came on the heels of a reading of 50 in February and a sharp drop in January. Though the index for expected future business conditions retreated, it continued to point to widespread optimism. The EBCI for North American conditions six months hence fell to 86.6 from 91.2 in February.
