DUBLIN, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2t28g9/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese FPCB Industry Report, 2015" report to their offering.
Global FPCB market size was up to USD12.952 billion in 2014 (up 14.4% from a year ago), grew by 3.4% YoY to about USD13.386 billion in 2015, and is expected to arrive at USD13.68 billion in 2016 at a slower annual growth rate of 2.2%, largely due to:
Depressed downstream markets: mobile phone market took a downturn with shipment growth of smartphone below 5%; shipments of tablet PC contracted significantly; shipments of laptop computer remained flat; shipments of HDD dropped markedly; A sharp depreciation of the Japanese yen; Decline in prices of upstream raw materials caused by deflation.
There is still growth space for FPCB. First, electronics now pursue for ultra-thinness, and FPCB is the best solution, as it is only 1/10 of the thickness of RPCB and makes 3D wiring a reality. Line width will be smaller than 40nm, so the unit price of FPCB is expected to rise. Second, the surface of more and more FPCB is mounted with SMD devices, which is also conducive to a rise in the unit price of FPCB.
FPCB makes up about 10% of automotive PCB market in 2015, about USD528 million, and is expected to reach 16% in 2019 or around USD1.123 billion. Automotive switches (wiper, lighting, turn signal, cruise control) and information center display, head up display, and instrument cluster all need FPCB. Moreover, as the automotive display becomes increasingly larger, the demand for FPCB will swell up.
