In downstream electronic terminal products manufacturing base cluster Xia, China city undoubtedly continued for global first big production regional, 2013 city accounted for rate up 44.4%, estimated 2017 will growth to 45.6%; and South Korea to brand led PCB industry growth effect, plus South Korea line to local layout mainly, so 2013 South Korea regional city accounted for up 14.8%; official beyond Taiwan regional of 13.6%, became global ranking second big production regional. Taiwanese business people on both sides of the production proportion of capacity in the West for his China open, squeezing Taiwan regional share of production, but Taiwan still maintain a yearly growth of about 2%.
If in the case of PCB products, mainland China to produce market demand a large number of low order in single and double sided, multilayer products, 2013 County overall PCB production weighting up to 60%, the main lock applications include: PC, NB, communications, consumer electronics ... ; HDI and the FPC scored for second-and third-largest product, mainly used in mobile phones and other mobile devices; and in part of the IC substrate is still far behind Japan, and Taiwan, and Korea, and other regions.
Mainland China with extensive use of multilayer applications, applications to consumer electronics as the largest proportion of about 30%; followed by the HDI and the FPC more communications products, accounting for about 25%.
According to the survey, global PCB makers currently number about 2,500, and PCB manufacturers in mainland China alone number more than 1,200, accounted for half of the world's share.
By above data can understand, at this stage China city due to is global electronic products main production base, global PCB production are has towards China city for value chain mobile and layout, formed China City area PCB output has ranked for full first; however in downstream application products part compared concentrated Yu in the low order: including personal computer, and NB, and consumption electronic,, also so corresponds to of PCB products share also towards in the low order products concentrated, including traditional multilayer hard phase more Yu other advanced national, still share partial high, And more than 50%.
