2005 World PCB market size of about 420 billion U.S. dollars, of which the output value of 11.3 billion in Japan, still living in the world. China PCB industry has maintained rapid growth in recent years, the output value of $ 6,000,000,000 in 2003, the output value of $ 8,150,000,000 in 2004, 2005, the output value has reached 10.83 billion U.S. dollars, second only to Japan, China's PCBA Assembly manufacturer production value in 2006 is expected to more than 12 billion U.S. dollars. Currently there are around 2800 PCB enterprises, of which about 1,200 in mainland China. The world's leading PCB manufacturer in the vast majority have been set up production bases in China and is actively expanding. Expected in recent years, China remains the world's PCB manufacturers an important destination for investment and transfer. Chinese PCB production in 2005 exceeded 100 million 1 million square meters, which accounts for nearly half of the multilayer, PCB product structure of China is gradually to higher layers, HDI, the rapid development of high-end products. PCB import and export volume in China in 2003 60 million, in 2004 8.9 billion in 2005 reached 11.9 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 34%.
2006-2008 Global Soft Plate in 3G, smart phone, digital camera and monitor demand-driven, you can maintain the growth rate of 8-10%. Use soft phone will be towards the polarized aspect, a part of the soft and hard toward the multi-layer flexible board or board design to achieve the maximum amount of data transmission capacity and upgrade the assembly quality purposes; and those used in the low-level mobile phones, soft board discarded plywood and soft and hard board design, replaced by soft-sided or double-sided pcb in order to achieve low-cost replacement purposes, so if handset manufacturers can cut to the low-end mobile phone market, will contribute to a single face and soft-sided board upgrade.
FPC development of the industry are three general direction, first, a soft board with 2L FCCL; currently prevent large-scale application 2L FCCL stumbling block is the price, mainly because of 2L FCCL demand, manufacturers of high gross profit resulting from, once the price competition start shipments will be further expanded, the price will rapidly decline. Although many people believe 3L FCCL will be mainstream though, but we believe the market will go much faster than expected.
Second, the soft and hard board, thanks to slide and rotate the phone in large numbers, while the great efforts of South Korean manufacturers, pcba assembly manufacturer of hard and soft board a Korean blitz object. FPC most domestic enterprises do not have the experience of hard board, soft board is a challenge for these manufacturers.
Third, high-density flexible board, 3G era, the phone wiring density increase. Traditional density FPC has not enough. This is why most 3G phones straight sake.
