This new sub sector brings together those establishments engaged in the production of computers, computer peripherals, communications equipment, similar electronic products, and the components for such products.
The sub sector was created because of the economic significance these industries have obtained, because their rapid growth suggests that the products of these industries will become even more important to the economies of the North American countries, and because the production processes of the establishments in these industries are fundamentally different from the production processes for other machinery and equipment.
