The demand for IC substrates has increased, and the output value of the PCB industry is expected to exceed 300 billion yuan this year
The Statistics Department of the Ministry of Economic Affairs announced on the 15th that this year, server and Netcom equipment manufacturers have continued to return to Taiwan to invest in expanding production lines, and the pneumonia epidemic has pushed up the order of remote application products. In addition, telecom operators have accelerated the deployment of 5G infrastructure. This has spurred another wave of demand momentum in the printed circuit board (PCB) industry. The cumulative output value from January to September was 227.3 billion yuan, an annual increase of 7.9%. It is estimated that the annual output value this year will exceed 300 billion yuan, returning to the pre-financial tsunami Among them, the IC carrier board is the main driving force for the growth of the printed circuit board industry this year.
Looking at the main products of the printed circuit board industry, rigid and flexible printed circuit boards benefited from the expansion of 5G, artificial intelligence and other emerging technology applications, driving the increase in demand for consumer electronic products such as information and communications. The output value from January to September this year was 109.1 billion yuan. The annual growth rate was 2.4%, accounting for 48% of the overall industry; IC substrates benefited from the booming demand for high-end computing chips and high-speed memory. The output value reached 71.1 billion yuan, an annual increase of 25.6%, the largest growth rate, accounting for 31.3% of the overall industry, which is a boost The main source of contribution to the overall industry growth, the two products together accounted for about 80% of the printed circuit board industry.
