Current challenges and opportunities of PCB chemicals

PCB is an indispensable foundational product in electronic information industry. Its manufacturing process is complicated and need many processes, the necessary equipment and material involved counts to hundreds of varieties, of which there are more than ten categories of chemicals, dozens of varieties series.
 
PCB performance, stability, and its production are closely related to the chemicals used. It can be said, without the many different chemicals, it is impossible to produce a circuit board, not to mention producing multilayer board, HDI board, chip bedded board, Rigid-flex board used in a variety of high-tech electronics products.
 
Current challenges and opportunities of PCB chemicals
 
With advances in technology, high-tech electronic products made more performance requirements for circuit boards. Small holes, fine lines, thin board thickness is the development trend of the circuit board today, circuit boards with various requirements, various types of performance improvement is achieved by changing the chemical formulations and processes usage, therefore PCB chemicals are also facing new challenges from upstream.
 
According to PCB chemical senior professionals’ analysis, automotive intelligence applications, fine line high density interconnect circuit boards, high-speed high-frequency communications PCB, these three emerging application market has great potential currently, also has brought new opportunities to the PCB chemicals. PCB chemicals manufacturers should improve their core technical competitiveness, grasp the opportunity in emerging markets to seize a place.
