With the trend of industry moving to the east, the center of gravity of PCB industry in mainland China is constantly shifting to Asia, and the production capacity in Asia is further transferred to the mainland, thus forming a new industrial pattern.With the continuous transfer of capacity, mainland China has become the world's most productive PCB region.According to Prismark estimates, China's PCB output will reach $28.972 billion in 2017, accounting for more than 50 percent of global GDP.
Data center and other applications to enhance the HDI requirements for the future of the vast space.The data center develops to the characteristics of high speed, large capacity, cloud computing and high performance, and the demand for construction is increasing, and the demand for servers will also increase the demand of HDI as a whole.The popularity of mobile electronics such as smartphones will also drive demand for FPC boards.In the trend of intelligent and thinning of mobile electronic products, FPC has the advantages of light weight, thin thickness, bending resistance and so on, which will benefit its wide application in the display module, touch module, fingerprint identification module, side key and so on of the smart phone.Power supply key and other plate demand is increasing.
"Raw material price rises environmental protection inspector" under the concentration degree increases, the leading manufacturer welcomes the opportunity.The rising prices of copper foil, epoxy resin, ink and other raw materials in the upper reaches of the industry cause cost pressure to PCB manufacturers. At the same time, the central authorities vigorously carry out environmental protection inspectors, implement environmental protection policies, crack down on chaotic small manufacturers, and exert cost pressure.Rising raw material prices and environmental inspectors against the background of PCB industry reshuffle brings concentration.Small manufacturers have weak bargaining power to the downstream, so it is difficult to absorb the upstream price increase. Small and medium-sized PCB enterprises will withdraw because of the narrowing of profit margins. In this round of reshuffle of the PCB industry, leading companies have technology and capital advantages.It is expected to achieve scale expansion through expansion of production capacity, acquisition and merger, product upgrading and so on, with its efficient production process, excellent cost control based on, and direct benefit of industry concentration.The industry is expected to return to rationality and the industrial chain continues to develop healthily.
New applications promote industry growth. 5G new communication base stations have a large demand for high frequency circuit boards: compared with the number of million-grade base stations in 4G era, the number of base stations in the age of 5G is expected to exceed ten million levels.The high frequency high speed plate which meets the 5 G requirement has wider technical barrier and higher gross profit rate than the traditional products.
Electronic automobile trend, pull the high-speed growth of automobile PCB.With the deepening of the degree of electronization of vehicles, the demand area of PCB for vehicles will grow step by step.Compared with traditional cars, new energy vehicles have higher requirements for electronization. The cost of electronic devices in traditional high class cars is about 25%, and in new energy vehicles it is 45%.Among them, BMS will become the new growth point of automobile PCB, and the high frequency PCB carried by millimeter wave radar will put forward a large amount of rigid demand.
