The Global PCB Market Output Reached $69.1 Billion
The copper foil substrate meets the 5G high-speed transmission requirements, and the specifications need to be upgraded from low loss to ultra-low loss. It will be widely used in base stations and mobile phones. The market size is expected to reach $4 billion in 2025.
According to industry insiders, the global PCB market is growing steadily. In 2018, the global circuit board industry continued to grow in 2017. Although the growth rate fell to 6.3%, the output value reached US$69.1 billion, a record high.
After the integration period from 2015 to 2016, 2017 will resume growth in 2018. In addition to new application-driven substrate upgrades, PC shipments have slowed, and IC operators and wireless Bluetooth headsets have grown significantly and are major contributors.
In general, the global PCB market has a stable total output value, the market supply and demand balance, the supply and demand of raw materials eased, the average price weakened, and the related manufacturers' cost structure is better. In addition, the penetration of 5G services and new materials is increasing. It is beneficial for PCB factories to operate on the market.
