Before 2000, more than 70 percent of global PCB production was in the americas (mainly North America), Europe and Japan.Since entering the 21st century, the PCB industry has been shifting its focus to Asia.At present, PCB output in Asia is close to 90% of the world, especially in China and southeast Asia.Since 2006, China has surpassed Japan to become the world's largest PCB producer, ranking first in both output and output.In recent years, the global economy has been in a period of deep adjustment. Major economies in Europe, the United States, Japan and other countries have significantly weakened their role in driving world economic growth.China's increasing integration with the global economy has gradually taken up half of the global PCB market.As the world's largest producer of PCB industry, China's share of global PCB industry output has increased from 31.18% in 2008 to 50.53% in 2017.

Global PCB market

In 2016, the global PCB industry has three main characteristics: weak demand, the impact of new technology and the price of raw materials.The PCB market was $54.207 billion in 2016, down 2% from a year earlier, according to Prismark, and has declined in all but China.First, demand growth in the PC, tablet and high-end smartphone markets has slowed. According to Gartner's latest data, the global PC industry continued to decline in Q3.Secondly, the A10 processor of apple iphone7 is the first to adopt fu-wlp encapsulation without encapsulation substrate, which has greatly impacted the development of packaging substrate market. For example, Ibiden of Japan and samsung of Korea also face the problem of seeking new PCB market stability and enterprise development.Raw materials have suddenly risen in price, with copper rising as much as 37.7% in 2016.
