Nearly 6 days ago, the 2016 PCB industry analysis and market forecast report released by IPC showed that the military industry and aerospace industry are the two fastest growing PCB industries in North America
According to the 2016 north American PCB industry analysis and market forecast report released by IPC nearly 6 days ago, the military industry and aerospace industry are the two fastest growing vertical application markets in North America, accounting for one-third of the PCB market and the only growing market application area in 2016.
In the IPC survey, it was also found that the growth rate of flexible PCB market was far higher than that of rigid PCB, but the negative growth rate of rigid PCB market was steadily decreasing in recent years, and the negative growth rate was reversed in 2015.North American PCB production in 2014-2015, estimated to have fallen 4.3 percentage points, actually grew at a virtually flat rate of 0.4 percent.
The annual survey report is to the north American market of PCB industry and business based on the analysis of data, including the current data analysis of rigid and flexible plate, market and the growth rate of output, production and sales of different product type, sample production, vertical market, and the application of special technologies such as RF and embedded components;It also includes financial and operational indicators such as average operating income, capacity utilization, inventory turnover and ordering time.In addition, the report includes an analysis of global and north American PCB production by Dr. Hayao Nakahara, a prominent PCB industry analyst and consultant, and its 2017 forecast.
The results of the report come from annual data submitted by sample companies participating in the IPC north American PCB statistical and market research project in 2015.It is estimated that the sample companies involved in the IPC project have occupied 51% of the PCB market share in North America.
