How Chinese PCB Companies Are Ready For The Arrival Of 5G

1G call, 2G chat QQ, 3G update micro-blog, 4G watch video, 5G download a movie... I believe this is the understanding of most people's iteration of mobile communication technology. As we all know, the fifth generation of mobile communication technology (5G) as a new generation of revolutionary technology not only means double the data transmission speed, but also a true converged network, and will promote related application areas, such as the Internet of Things. Applications such as Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, automotive networks and interactive multimedia will be promoted and will form the era of “Internet of Everything”.

PCB as the "mother of electronic products", the profound changes in the downstream consumer market will directly affect the development track of the PCB industry. The industry generally believes that in the next three to five years, 5G communication will surpass today's smart terminals, automotive electronics two application markets, and become the first engine to promote the growth of the PCB industry.

From 2010 to the present, the global PCB production growth rate has generally declined. On the one hand, the rapid iteration of new terminal technologies continues to affect low-end capacity. Single and double panels, once at the top of production value, are gradually being replaced by high-end production capabilities such as multilayer boards, HDI, FPC and rigid-flex boards. On the other hand, weak demand in the terminal market and abnormally high raw material prices have also made the entire industry chain turbulent. PCB is committed to reshaping its core competencies, from “winning by quantity” to “winning by quality” and “winning by technology”.

It is worth noting that in the context of the global electronics market and global PCB production growth rate, the annual growth rate of China's PCB output value is higher than the global, and the proportion of total output value to the world has also increased significantly. Obviously, China has become a global PCB. As the largest manufacturer in the industry, China's PCB industry has a better state to welcome the arrival of 5G communication!
