Small And Medium-sized PCB Plant To Be Shut Down, Copper Foil Substrate Price To Rise?

- Sep 15, 2018-

Mainland this year began on manufacture of many electronic and chemical materials, environmental auditing, industry, especially the new green taxes this year on the road, although the official to replace the discharge calculation is given priority to, although if a discharge may be charge by the authorities in the zone under green taxes fund, but the actual operation still need to waste disposal contractor related fees, so is equal to add a green taxes.

High production costs and a clampdown on illegal waste water and gas emissions by mainland officials have led to at least one wave of small and medium-sized PCB manufacturers closing down on the mainland this year, local authorities said.

In addition, the mainland has added new eia projects for manufacturers to expand production, which the industry believes is more stressful for small and medium-sized chinese-owned factories that have not yet achieved economic scale.

Experts and scholars, for example, local requirements for related need expansion plans to issue the air pollution and waste is in accordance with the specification, whether energy saving carbon reduction to prevent water pollution, such as report, the expert's report shall be borne by vendors, theory of pricing, often tens of thousands of yuan, as well as develop system requirements to prevent operation damage, etc., to no small and medium-sized companies is huge pressure.

It is reported that, including the world's largest PCB production capacity of the group of the zhongxin integrated laminates, and shandong jinbao and other lu capital PCB indicators plant, are reported in July increased CCL news.Lu zi factory frankly, because of the strict environmental protection to increase production costs, must reflect the cost trend;Taiwan optronics, lianmao yesterday (4) also closely monitor market development, flexible price trends.

According to the explanation of zhongxin laminate and shandong jinbao, the price of chemical raw materials rose due to environmental protection factors. In order to relieve the pressure of production, all the thickness of CCL plates will be increased, with the price increase of 5 yuan and 10 yuan each.Industry observation, according to the average price of two medium and low order products conversion, this brewing rise about 5% to 10 %.

Consider the third calendar year are consumer electronics production peak season, field observation, PCB is the mother of electronic materials, involving the iPhone, etc. Series of higher-order flagship model production, including the application of PCB CCL under no other materials can be replaced, local companies began to promote the rise in price, and extends to high order sheet products, to Taiwan photoelectric coupling alum, yao, taiwan-owned related materials suppliers.

As for the CCL price hike in mainland investment, taioptronics believes that if the news is true, considering the current situation of environmental protection in mainland China, local CCL factory will not exclude the price hike of low-grade products related to thick plate, which is seen from the current market situation and has a high acceptance.In addition, Taiwan optronics mainly focuses on the HDI manufacturing process for medium and high-end mobile phones, and this part of the quotation still depends on the peak season demand.

As the notice of price increase is mainly used for bulk products, lianmao said yesterday that at present it seems to be the same industry selling price information test water, the subsequent supply and demand of products will still depend on the situation.
