Fast development in East and South Asia PCB industry
As the rapid increase in the demand for electronic products, the needs for consuming PCB products, especially for high precision and special material now exhibit a new trend of significant growth.
The fast response to market trends and short production cycle ensure that China’s PCB enterprises have competitive advantages in the PCB industry. Since 2000, the proportion of the output value of China’s PCB industry in the global PCB industry has risen from 7% to 36%, and China has become the world’s largest PCB production center. In the future, the production capacity of the global electronic products will gradually shift to east and south Asia, PCB industry will become one of the most important parts in the electronic industrial chain.
At present, there are two major trends of electronic products. One is consumers’ increasing demand for the ultrathin and portable features of electronic products. It provides broad opportunities for the development of high-density interconnector (HDI) and flexible printed board (FPC). The other is the requirement for the stability of the circuits even under high-speed and high frequency conditions. As the circuits have fast transmission rate and have a large amount of information to process, it has strict requirements for the stability and reliability of printed circuit boards. Therefore, the requirement for the quality of high-end and special substrates like high frequency will continue to rise.
