PCB Gains a Board and Sustained Steady Development in Downstream Applications


PCB’s irreplaceability and necessity in electronic products decides its vast developing space in downstream applications. From the global perspective, PCB has gained a large-scale application in computer, communications and consumer electronics fields. These three fields account for 70 percent of the entire PCB applications scale. Besides, PCB products have gradually broadened their applications in industrial, medical and military fields.

 

Globally, PCB and global economic development is positively correlated. From 2003, benefited from the rapid development of main downstream applications like communications equipment and computers, PCB industry witnessed a continuous growth. Affected by the Finical Crisis in 2009, the peak position of the whole industry suffered a negative growth. With the gradual elimination of the negative impact of financial crisis, PCB industry is going to enter a new round business cycle.

 

According to the data released by Prismark on February this year, the global output value in 2010 is about $51 billion, which is increased by 25 percent comparing with $40.6 billion in 2009. PCB’s industry boom is experiencing a rapid recovery phase. Since 2004, global PCB industry has gained a sustained and steady development except in 2009 finical crisis. The Compound Annual Growth rate is about 8 percent.

 

In contrast, the development achievement in domestic PCB market is more impressive. Currently, our country has become the largest PCB manufacturing country in the world. Till 2010, our output value reaches to $18.5 billion, it accounts for 36.2 percent and ranks top in the global market. This trend will continue to maintain as the further development of the domestic communications industry and the industry boom of the related downstream industries. As Prismark predicted, Chinese PCB industry will maintain a rapid growth in the next five years. The CAGR will reach 10.8 percent.
