IPC WORLD PCB PRODUCTION REPORT SHOWS 19 PERCENT GROWTH IN 2010

Aug 24, 2011

Worldwide production of printed circuit boards (PCBs) grew by 19 percent over 2009 to nearly $55 billion, according to the World PCB Production Report for the Year 2010, recently released by IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries®. Published annually, the report offers consensus estimates of PCB production value by country and by product category, and analysis on global and regional PCB industry trends. This year’s report includes special sections on trends in the HDI/microvia and metal-core PCB markets.

Approximately 2,600 PCB fabricators produced an estimated $54.772 billion (U.S.) in 2010. PCB production grew in all regions in 2010 as the industry recovered from the recession. Production grew by 6.9 percent in North America, 14.4 percent in Europe and 21.1 percent in Asia, increasing Asia’s share of world PCB production to 87 percent. Rigid-flex was the highest growth category. Metal-core PCBs, while less than one percent of world PCB production, was the second fastest growing category in 2010.

World PCB Production Report for the Year 2010 was developed by the World Market Consensus Committee, comprising the world’s leading analysts in the electronic interconnection industry. Using a consensus process, committee members pool their own information and review data from other sources to produce this annual report. The committee members include Michael Gasch of Data4PCB, Mark Hutton of BPA Consulting Ltd., Harvey Miller of Fabfile Online, Hayao Nakahara of N.T. Information Ltd. and Phil Plonski of Prismark Partners.

The report is available only to IPC members free of charge and can be accessed at www.ipc.org/World-Report-2010. Non members may purchase the report for $1,050 and receive a one-year facility membership in IPC, which includes many other member benefits.
