PCB is irreplaceable in electronic products which make its vast space for downstream applications. Overall, the global PCB, mainly in the field of computer, communications, consumer electronics, there is a large-scale applications, the total market size of the three applications with 70% of PCB. In addition, PCB products are industrial, medical and military applications and other fields gradually widened.
Globally, PCB are positively related with the global economic development. PCB industry began to benefit from communications equipment, computers and other major areas of rapid development of downstream applications and sustained growth from 2003. Under the influence of the financial crisis in 2009, frustration, and the peak position of negative growth in the industry. As the financial crisis, the gradual elimination of the negative impact, PCB industry will enter a new round of economic cycle.
Regarding the report of February this year,the global PCB output value is about USD510 billion in 2010. compared with 40.6 billion U.S. dollars in 2009 greatly increased 25%. PCB industry is experiencing boom of fast recovery phase. Since 2004, the global PCB industry in addition to the financial crisis of 2009 has continued its steady development outside, the annual compound growth rate of about 8%.
In contrast, the development of the domestic PCB market performance is more impressive. At present, China has become the world's largest PCB producer. By 2010, China's PCB output value reached 185 billion U.S. dollars in global market share of 36.2%, living in the first place. With this trend will further develop the domestic telecommunications industry and related downstream industries continue to boom continue. According to Prismark forecast the next five years China's PCB industry will maintain rapid growth, the annual compound growth rate will reach 10.8% from 2010-2015.
