1. The demand for PCB of electric vehicles has increased significantly. Under the electric and intelligent dual wheel drive, the automotive electronics market has expanded rapidly, maintaining an annual growth rate of more than 15% in recent years, which has also driven the automotive PCB market to continue to rise.
The demand of 2.5G communication industry is approaching. China's 5G construction investment will reach 705 billion yuan, an increase of 56.7% over 4G investment. Compared with 2G-4G communication system, 5G will make more use of 3000-5000MHz and millimeter wave frequency band, and also require the data transmission rate to be increased by more than 10 times. The construction of ultra dense small base stations brought about by 5G commerce will bring a lot of high frequency PCB requirements.
3. The demand for FPC from smart phones has increased. In 2016, the global FPC market scale reached 85.2 billion yuan. FPC is thin and flexible. FPC applications include antenna, camera, display module, touch module, etc. At present, Apple's annual FPC purchase accounts for about half of the global market. Each iPhone uses about 14-16 FPCs, and the stand-alone ASP is close to $30. Jingwang Electronics and Hongxin Electronics in China are also suppliers.
