Global PCB industry output value of electronics industry output value of more than one-fourth, is the largest industry in all segments of electronic components industry, industrial scale up to 40 billion dollars. Also, due to its unique position in the electronic industry, has become the most active industry in the electronic components industry, in 2003 and 2004, global PCB production value is $34.4 billion and $40.1 billion, respectively, an increase rate were 5.27% and 16.47%. Development of PCB industry in China
Our PCB development work began in 1956, 1963-1978, gradually expanding the formation of PCB industry. After the reform and opening up more than 20 years, due to the introduction of foreign advanced technology and equipment, single-sided, double-sided and multi-layer boards have received rapid development, from small to large domestic PCB industry developed step by step. Due to the concentration of industry and labour costs of land and raw materials in China is relatively low, become the strongest growth area. In 2002, as the third-largest PCB producer. In 2003, PCB production and import and export volume of more than US $6 billion, surpassing for the first time United States to become the world's second-largest PCB producer, the proportion of production value has increased from 8.54% in 2000 to 15.3%, up almost 1 time. 2006 China has replaced Japan as the world's largest PCB production output value base and the most active countries. About 20% of PCB industry maintained a rapid growth in China, much higher than the global PCB industry growth rates.
Judging from the yield, China PCB industry main products has grown from a single panel, double panel turned to plywood and was promoted from above 4~6 layer 6~8 layer. With fast growth of multilayer, HDI boards, flexible sheets, China's PCB industry structures are gradually being optimized and improved.
