The analysts forecast the Global Printed Circuit Board (PCB) market to grow at a CAGR of 7.8 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing adoption of smartphones and tablet PCs. The Global PCB market has also been witnessing the increasing demand for miniaturized PCBs. However, increasing raw materials prices could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The report, the Global PCB market 2012-2016, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global PCB market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One of the main trends witnessed in the Global PCB market is the increasing demand for miniaturized PCBs Currently, the demand for compact and small-sized electronic devices is increasing, leading to a reduction in the size of PCBs used in these devices. PCBs are very dense with many layers of interconnected wires as they are designed to perform a wide range of functions. These miniaturized PCBs are used in most of the compact devices such as smartphones, tablet computers, and digital cameras. This trend is expected to grow more rapidly in the future and lead to the development of highly miniaturized PCBs.
According to the report, one of the main factors driving the market is high adoption of smartphones and tablet PCs. Smartphones are designed to operate at a high speed with multi-functional features embedded in these devices. Consumers demand smaller devices, but capable of integrating more number of features. HDI PCBs are majorly used in smartphones.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the increasing prices of raw materials. Due to the shortage of supply of these raw materials and commodities, there has been an increase in the prices. This increase in raw material and component prices negatively affects the vendors' profit margins.
