Future circuit board industry Internet + development trend
As we all know, PCB is a high pollution, high energy consumption, high investment, labor-intensive industry. During the transition period, companies face many problems. In terms of environmental protection, due to the continuous improvement of national environmental protection requirements in recent years, the policies formulated are becoming more and more strict, and the environmental protection pressure of enterprises is also growing.
In terms of cost, we must not only face the continuous rise of international raw material prices in a high inflation environment, but also face the sharp rise in wages and wages brought about by the implementation of new labor laws; plus the appreciation of the renminbi, Southeast Asian countries Many low-end manufacturers in the circuit board industry have even come to life and death due to many external factors such as the rise of low-cost manufacturing. The various cost control methods adopted by many companies are only to reduce wages and save raw materials, but the cost and cost of these savings are very limited and cannot solve the problem fundamentally. Due to the lack of investment in R&D and marketing, some companies may also suffer from development imbalances and loss of core competitiveness. Although some companies have begun to move to the Midwest to reduce labor costs, they have increased the cost of other design, R&D and logistics. In the long run, it is not cost effective.
Although there are still many PCB manufacturers who choose to trust traditional PCB design, production, sales, operations and management models, there are still many questions about the Internet, so they are on the sidelines, but some companies have tested water first. Combined with the Internet, we will open an innovative PCB cloud platform in product design; in the engineering operation, realize the whole process of Internet management automation. In terms of sales and management, we will be dominated by Internet thinking. Of course, some of these companies have also gained sweetness and achieved good results.
The popularity of information technology and software applications has driven the development of various industries. The emergence of the "Internet +" thinking has subverted the industrial structure of certain industries and broadened people's horizons. This idea was first introduced into the service industry and then extended to the industrial production sector. Of course, this idea has also brought a spring breeze to the PCB industry.
The PCB industry has been developing for many years, but growth in recent years has not been optimistic. According to news reports, more than 10% of circuit board factories in China disappear every year. The emergence of this situation is closely related to the changes in industrial structure brought about by the development of the times. Only with change, the PCB industry can survive in fierce competition.
