On the afternoon of May 5, 2017, the latest solution for the FPC level conference was successfully held.As mentioned, from a larger environment, China PCB performance is the best in the world. In 2016, PCB production in almost all geographical areas are down including Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, North America, except in China. In 2016, FPC global output value is 10.9 billion US dollars, accounting for 20.1% of global PCB output value:54.2 billion US dollars. The reason is due to the Chinese mobile phone growth: Huawei, OPPO, Vivo play a role on the growth of FPC.
Review historical data of Global FPC: it is only $ 3.45 billion in 2000 and $ 10.9 billion in 2016, with an average annual growth rate of 7.5% in 17 years. (HDI board, 2.07 billion US dollars in 2000, US $ 7.68 billion in 2016 with an average annual growth rate of 8.5% in 17 years.) In the future, the average annual growth rate of 2016-2021 is 3.0%, which is the fastest growth rate for all PCB varieties. The above data is also sufficient to show that FPC development momentum is good.
