Japan earthquake caused a turmoil in the global PCB assembly manufacturer
However, BT resin substrate materials,PCB assembly the result of major gas production Mitsubishi and Hitachi Chemical are located in areas subject to shock occurred at, and as the world's largest carrier material suppliers Mitsubishi Gas accounts for about five into the city, have accounted for Hitachi Chemical into four, two of the world Jiucheng market, but no production base outside Japan, and no alternative source of short-term, the impact can be said to be very large. The two companies by the end of March in the suspended state is still in reality, I am afraid that lead to shortage of material supply chain carrier wave.
CCL: benefits rose only offer reverse effect
For CCL industry, not only the impact on the upstream large original PI resin, and because of the metal material supply manufacturers JX's "Silver Factory", "carbon of the original factory" and "HMC Factory" are located in Ibaraki Prefecture, and its Rolled copper foil of 75% global market share, impact on the CCL production, and for the three raw materials into copper, eight belong to the soft rolling copper foil substrate (FCCL) the impact is even worse. PCBA manufacturer
However, there are also news broke, the international PCB assembly China copper price due to weakness in March and watching the market at the earthquake-induced state, resulting in raw material prices rising for seven months suspended copper gains, related companies also revealed that 4 CCL month just to maintain and March offer flat level. But in the long run, can not find alternative vendors such as supply shortages and price increases are bound to face the situation.
