Trend of PCB industry in China

Deep understanding of PCB industry

The overall development of China's PCB industry is rapid. Since the reform and opening up, China has attracted large-scale transfer of European and American manufacturing industry due to preferential policies in labor resources, market and investment. A large number of electronic products and manufacturers have set up factories in China, which has driven the development of related industries including PCB. According to the statistics of China's CPCA, in 2006, the actual output of PCB in China reached 130 million square meters and the output value reached US $12.1 billion, accounting for 24.90% of the total output value of PCB in the world, surpassing Japan and becoming the first in the world. From 2000 to 2006, the average annual growth rate of China's PCB market reached 20%, far exceeding the global average. The global financial crisis in 2008 had a huge impact on the PCB industry, but it did not cause a disastrous blow to China's PCB industry. Stimulated by national economic policies, China's PCB industry recovered in an all-round way in 2010, and China's PCB output value reached US $19.971 billion in 2010. Prismark predicts that China will maintain a compound annual growth rate of 8.10% from 2010 to 2015, higher than the global average growth rate of 5.40%.
Uneven regional distribution of industries
China's PCB industry is mainly distributed in South China and East China, and the sum of the two reaches 90% of the country, with obvious industrial agglomeration effect. This phenomenon is mainly related to the concentration of the main production bases of China's electronic industry in the Pearl River Delta and Yangtze River Delta.
The downstream application distribution of China's PCB industry accounts for the highest proportion of consumer electronics, reaching 39%; The second is computer, accounting for 22%; Communication accounts for 14%; Industrial control / medical instruments accounted for 14%; Automotive electronics accounts for 6%; Defense and aerospace accounted for 5%.
Although China now ranks first in the world in terms of industrial scale, it still lags behind the world's advanced level in terms of the overall technical level of PCB industry. In terms of product structure, multilayer board accounts for most of the output value, but most of them are medium and low-end products below 8 floors. HDI and flexible board have a certain scale, but there is a gap in technical content with foreign advanced products such as Japan. Few enterprises can produce IC carrier board with the highest technical content in China
