Printed circuit board b global market distribution
Since the 21st century, as the global electronic information industry shifts from developed countries to emerging economies and countries, Asia, especially China, has gradually become the most important electronic information product production base in the world.In 2016, the revenue of China's electronic information manufacturing industry above scale reached 12.2 trillion yuan, with a year-on-year growth rate of 8.4 percent.Along with the migration of electronic information industry chain, PCB industry, as its basic industry, is also concentrated in mainland China, southeast Asia and other Asian regions.Before 2000, more than 70% of global PCB production was in the americas (mainly North America), Europe and Japan.Since the beginning of the 21st century, PCB industry has been shifting to Asia.Asia is now close to 90 per cent of global PCB output, with the fastest growth in China and south-east Asia.Since 2006, China has surpassed Japan to become the world's largest producer of PCB, ranking first in both output and output value of PCB.In recent years, the global economy has been in a period of deep adjustment. The leading role of major economies such as Europe, the United States and Japan in world economic growth has been significantly weakened, and their PCB market growth has been limited or even shrinking.And the degree of integration between China and the global economy is increasing day by day, occupying half of the global PCB market.As the largest producer of the global PCB industry, China's share of the total output value of the global PCB industry has increased from 31.18 percent in 2008 to 50.53 percent in 2017.
The trend of industry moving eastward is unique in mainland China.
PCB industry has been shifting to Asia, while the production capacity in Asia has been further transferred to the mainland, forming a new industrial pattern.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's PCB production value is close to 90% of the world, which is dominated by the global PCB, while the Chinese mainland has become the region with the highest PCB production capacity.Meanwhile, in recent years, the regional capacity in Asia has been shifting from Japan, Japan and Taiwan to mainland China, resulting in the growth of PCB capacity in mainland China at a rate of 5%~7% higher than the global level.China's PCB output value will reach $28.972 billion in 2017, accounting for more than 50 percent of the global total.
China has become the world's largest consumer electronics market, with a complete supporting PCB industry demand in the upstream and downstream industrial chain.
In recent ten years, China's electronic information industry has been developing rapidly and its scale has been expanding constantly.In 2015, the annual revenue of China's consumer electronic information manufacturing industry reached 11.1 trillion yuan, the highest in the world.As one of the closest carriers to terminal products, PCB demand in the mainland will continue to grow with the popularity of downstream terminal products.In contrast, the supply side of the mainland also forms a complete industrial chain, which can be used to support the growing production demand, from copper foil, glass fiber, resin to copper clad sheet and finally to PCB.Therefore, driven by demand, the industry capacity smoothly to the mainland.
At present, China has formed a PCB industrial cluster belt with pearl river delta region and Yangtze river delta region as the core region.
According to CPCA statistics of China printed circuit association, there were about 1,500 PCB enterprises in China in 2013, mainly distributed in the pearl river delta, Yangtze river delta and bohai rim regions. The output value of PCB in the Yangtze river delta and pearl river delta accounted for about 90% of the total output value of the Chinese mainland.PCB capacity in central and western regions has also expanded rapidly in recent years.In recent years, some PCB enterprises moved their production capacity from the pearl river delta region and Yangtze river delta region to the central and western cities with better basic conditions, such as huangshi in hubei province, guangde in anhui province, suining in sichuan province, etc.The pearl river delta region and the Yangtze river delta region take advantage of their talents, economy and industrial chain to develop towards high-end products and high value-added products.
