Future PCB Industry Internet + Development Trend

- Aug 28, 2018-

PCB industry has been developing for many years, but the subsequent growth is sluggish and not optimistic.It has been reported that over 10% of PCB enterprises disappear in China every year, which is closely related to the changes of industrial structure brought by the development of The Times.Only change, PCB industry can survive in the reality of fierce competition.


As is known to all, PCB is a highly polluting, high-energy consuming, high-investment and labor-intensive industry. In the transition period, enterprises face many problems.In terms of environmental protection, due to the continuous improvement of national requirements for environmental protection in recent years, the policies formulated are more and more stringent, which increases the pressure on enterprises to protect the environment.On the cost side, we should not only face the continuous rise of international raw material prices in the context of high inflation, but also face the huge increase of workers' wage costs caused by the implementation of the new labor law.In addition to the appreciation of RMB, the rise of low-cost manufacturing in southeast Asian countries and other external factors, many low-end manufacturers in the PCB industry are even at the point of survival.


The various cost control methods adopted by many enterprises are nothing more than to reduce wages and save money on raw materials, but the cost and expense saved by these enterprises are very limited, which cannot fundamentally solve the problem.Some enterprises may also lack investment in research and development and marketing, resulting in unbalanced development and loss of core competitiveness.Although some companies have started to move to the Midwest to reduce labor costs due to cost concerns, they have actually increased other costs in design, research and development and logistics, which may not be cost-effective in the long run.


The popularization of information technology and software application has promoted the development of various industries.The emergence of "Internet +" thinking has upended the industrial structure of certain industries and broadened people's vision.This thinking was first introduced in the service sector and then extended to industrial production.Of course, this thinking has also brought a ray of spring to the PCB industry.


Although many PCB enterprises still believe in the traditional PCB design, production, sales, operation and management mode, and there are still many doubts about the Internet, so they are in a state of wait-and-see. However, some enterprises have already tried their best to combine PCB with the Internet and create a new PCB cloud platform in product design.In the engineering operation, realize the entire automation of Internet management;In terms of sales and management, Internet thinking dominates.Of course, some of these companies have benefited greatly from this success
