In 2017, global PCB production value exceeded $58.8 billion

Global PCB output in 2017 was $58.8 billion, up 8.60 percent year-on-year.As an indispensable component in electronic products, PCB demand presents a steady growth trend.According to prison mark, the global PCB output value increased from $41.2 billion in 2009 to $58.8 billion in 2017, with an average annual compound growth rate of 4.55%. In 2017, the global PCB output value increased by 8.60% year-on-year.

PCB products can be divided into single-layer board, double-layer board, flexible board, HDI board and packaging substrate.From the perspective of the subdivided product structure of PCB, the multi-layer board has occupied the major part of the global PCB product structure. In 2016, the output value of the multi-layer board PCB was $211 billion, accounting for 39% of the global PCB output value.In 2016, the output value of the global flexible board was $10.9 billion, accounting for 20% of the global PCB output value, and the proportion was increasing year by year.In 2016, the output value of global single-layer board was $8 billion, accounting for 15% of global PCB output value.In 2016, the global HDI value was $7.7 billion, accounting for 14% of the global PCB value.In 2016, the output value of encapsulated substrate worldwide was $6.6 billion, accounting for 12% of global PCB output value.

As the industry moves eastward, mainland China takes the lead

In recent years, as the global electronics industry moves to China, the center of gravity of PCB industry also moves to the mainland.Before 2000, 70% of global PCB output was distributed in Europe, America (mainly North America), Japan and other three regions.With the continuous transfer of production capacity, Asia has become the main global PCB supply base, with output value close to 90% of the world, while China has become the region with the highest PCB capacity.China's PCB output value will reach $29.732 billion in 2017, accounting for more than 50 percent of the global total.

China is the largest producer of PCB, accounting for over 50% of output value of PCB.From the perspective of regional distribution of global PCB output value, as China has become the center of electronic manufacturing, China's PCB output value accounts for nearly 2% of global PCB output value, which has been steadily increasing year by year.Chinese PCB production output value proportion of global PCB from 31% growth in 2008 to 51% in 2017, the absolute value of the Chinese PCB production from $2008 in 15 billion, the whole long to $2017 in 29.7 billion, an average annual compound growth rate of 9%, in 2017 China PCB production about 10% year-on-year growth, beyond the PCB production overall growth in the world, China first big PCB producer status is stable.

Foreign PCB manufacturers are in the leading position, domestic PCB manufacturers catch up

In terms of global market share, foreign PCB manufacturers are still in a leading position.Currently, there are about 2,800 PCB enterprises in the world, mainly in the regions of China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, the United States and Europe.In terms of global PCB revenue rankings, foreign companies such as Japan, Taiwan and South Korea are among the top.

According to the ranking of the top 40 printed circuit board manufacturers in the world in 2017 released by prison mark, the most advanced printed circuit board manufacturers in the world.Among the top 10 PCB manufacturers, 3 are from Japan, 4 are from Taiwan, 1 is from the United States and 1 is from South Korea, and shennan circuit from China enters the top 20, ranking 19th.Following dongshan precision's acquisition of Mflex, FPC revenues in 2017 have reached nearly $1 billion, ranking it among the top 10 FPC companies in the world.

From the perspective of global PCB industry concentration, CR10 was only 33% in 2016, and the competition pattern was relatively scattered, and there was still great room for improvement.
