Printed circuit board market size
The global printed circuit board (PCB) market was valued at USD 60.42 billion 2017 and is expected to reach USD 80.38 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 4.2%. Factors driving the growth of the market are; rising adoption of automation in various end-user industries, growing demand for wireless devices, increasing miniaturization of devices, surging need for more efficient interconnect solutions, and rapid growth in flexible circuits. Owing to the implementation of processors and sensors in smart gadgets, the size of the PCB has reduced to 74%. Additionally, usage of flame retardant chemicals in PCBs to ensure fire safety, and increasing capital investment is further augmenting the market growth. Moreover, huge growth in global PCB market is also led by the increasing demand for smart tablets and smart phones in IT and consumer electronics sector. Growth in wearable electronics is emerging as a key opportunity in the growth of the global PCB market.
Printed Circuit Board is a circuit board in which a thin layer of copper is laminated, that offers an interconnection to the electronic components. To place electronic components on the insulated board, holes are created with the help of drillers. Further, components are mounted on the PCBs and soldering is done to fix the electronic components in a specified area. It provides a support to the electronic components and the electrical connection carrier. PCBs are used to electrically connect the components and provide a base.
With the rapid development in technology, electronics products will continue to emerge. But, massive production of PCB is becoming unfriendly to environment, due to the usage of wet chemicals while manufacturing. Moreover, lack of recycling ability also degrades the adoption rate of printed circuit boards. And to ensure less toxic emissions into the environment, ink jet printing technology is invented. This technology enables the cost-effective manufacturing of thin, flexible and disposable electrical devices. Moreover, Taiwan-based manufacturer (Wistron) is also looking to relocate a PCB manufacturing plant in Bengaluru, and has invested about $1 billion.
