The PCB raw material prices rise-PCB Assembly china
STG Electronic can offer one-stop pcb assembly service,from printed circuit board making,components purchase and SMT/THT assembly with IC programming, and functional test.
With the increased demand for electronic products and improvements in technology, screen-printing technology in circuit board manufacturing plays a huge role. In the process of circuit board 、pcb 、screen printing is the basis of its direct impact on operational level and the material quality of printed circuit boards, raw material prices around the pcb assembly quality often become an important factor. When the PCB raw material prices rise, companies unprofitable. On the one hand, PCB manufacturers may be other cost savings to ease through the pressure of raw materials; the other hand, "has not received a single" may become the norm, PCB enterprises are bound to face a merger or closure of the situation, and its related industries chain is also bound to be affected.
Currently, the smart phone and tablet PC shipment growth for the PCB fabrication industry, ushered in a new development opportunity for the whole industry moving away from traditional low-skill, low-margin. Thus, the domestic PCB industry favored by foreign investors, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup Global Securities have the PCB into their expanding range of smartphones and tablet PCs that will drive the PCB market.
However, PCB industry chain of raw materials is part of the problem seems to these foreign unexpected. Copper foil, glass cloth and copper foil substrate cried all the way up the price, especially in international copper prices directly affect the domestic prices of copper and copper substrates bullish. CCL is the direct PCB materials, copper accounted for the largest share of the cost of raw materials, CCL, CCL costs account for about 30% (thick) and 50% (thin), so the prices of copper prices as CCL The main driving force. Upstream and downstream industry chain, raw material suppliers in the transaction to the absolute right to speak, combined with the market situation of raw materials for less than demand, the pressure of rising costs passed on to the pcb assembly service directly upon the domestic market decline is difficult to resist PCB enterprises .
The arrival of 2011, does not make the PCB manufacturers as happy as other businesses, as they will continue to experience regular season in the first quarter. The current, PCB industry into the plight of raw material prices, which many enterprises may face closure or merger situation, the industry as a whole, or will face a re-integration of the development trend.
How many companies can survive the restructuring of the industry brought about by rising raw materials, we can not predict, but the domestic PCB Fabrication industry in the future development trend is not all the way trough, it is an indisputable fact. As electronic technology continues to evolve, increasing demand for electronic products, PCB industry to become the trend, industry restructuring are inevitable.
Currently, flat TVs and smart phones by the market blitz, PCB, although temporarily stabilize the market demand, but its future has always been that good.
