Although the global economy is unknown, the global printed circuit board (PCB) market in 2012 is still expected to maintain growth momentum, because of intelligent devices and LTE and other next-generation mobile communications market is still significant growth will drive the demand of high value-added PCB.
South Korea's electronic circuit industry, citing market research agency the Prismark data pointed out that in 2012 the global PCB market scale will reach $ 59.034 billion, an increase of 4.7 percent compared with 2011. Although in 2011 the overall PCB market growth rate is less than 7.4%, but taking into consideration the terminal industry may shrink doubt still is a positive growth trend.
From the PCBA china industry, the 2012 smart handheld mobile devices using high-density board (HDI), FPC (the FPCB), package substrate, LTE and other high value-added components, there will be a significant growth trend, The semiconductor package substrate market size estimated to increase to $ 9.235 billion; communication with the PCB market, compared with 2011 increased by 5.4 percent, to $ 14.33 billion. In contrast, defense, aerospace and other special PCB market will be reduced by 0.5% to $ 2.17 billion compared to 2011.
Lixiong Fan of the concurrently Association Vice President of South Korea's electronic circuit LGInnotek chief executive, said the high added value products on the market is fierce price war, only strong enough constitution of the few companies to win. South Korea PCBA supplier industry must maintain a high attention to market changes and to ensure cost competitiveness, improve the yield, the reform process, laid the basis of competition.
