Introduction


The development of the electronics sector in Poland dates back to the 1930s. During this period, among others, lighting equipment was manufactured by Polskie Zakłady Philips in Warsaw and electronic transmitting and microwave lamps by Zakłady Elektronowe Lamina in Piaseczno. The post-war years proved that electronics had become one of the fastest growing areas of the economy worldwide, being a carrier of technical and civil progress. With the fall of communism and the beginning of the 1990s, the electronics industry was in the sphere of interest of many foreign concerns that permanently marked their presence on the Polish market. These include Schneider Electric, Alcatel-Lucent or the already mentioned Philips. Today, the electronics industry is one of the fastest-growing segments of the economy in Poland.
