Flexible PCB (Printed Circuit Board) Market Outlook 2024: Global Opportunity and Demand Analysis, Market Forecast, 2016-2024

Published On : 2017-09-20 Report Page : 225 Category: Hardware and ICT

Global Flexible Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Market

Market Overview

Flexible PCB or circuits were introduced to overcome the usage of wire connectivity to compact the size of electronic circuit. Flexible PCB is a technology which integrates the electronic circuits on flexible substrates. Flexible PCB reduces the cost of electric interconnection by 65% and the wire connectivity by 70%. With the rising penetration of internet, advanced consumer electronics and emergence of IOT has significantly boosted the flexible PCB market and have been growing rapidly since last decade. Huge investments over research and development of PCB technology contributed to the new innovations in the electronic industry and constantly improving the people's modern life. For instance, Cicor, a leading high-tech industrial group based in Switzerland has launched a new technology named DenciTec. DenciTec offers high density of integrated functions for printed circuit boards, with high potential for further miniaturization of PCBs. Flexible printed circuit boards are highly used in cameras, smart phones, computers, medical equipments, sensors among others. Growing demand for advanced wearable devices coupled with compact and flexible electronic devices pushing the growth of flexible printed circuit board market.
