Research and Markets: Global and China Rigid PCB Industry Report 2014-2015

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pq46vz/global_and_china) has announced the addition of the "Global and China Rigid PCB Industry Report, 2014-2015" report to their offering.

2014 was a good year for majority of PCB companies, as output value of PCB industry touched USD59.6 billion, rising 3.7% against 2013, the fastest growth rate since 2011. Looking forward to 2015, a collapse in prices of commodities, especially in that of copper, will significantly reduce raw materials costs of PCB companies, thus further driving their profit margins.

In 2014, in key regions of PCB manufacturing, euro, NTD, and yen all depreciated sharply, while the won appreciated, dealing a heavy blow to South Korean PCB industry and cutting profit margins of the country's PCB companies, which all suffered declines in revenue and profit margins, no exception for Samsung's SEMCO, whose revenue from PCB business glided 2.4%, revenue from IC Carrier business dropped by 19%, and operating margin fell to below 1% from about 9%.

Taiwanese companies and European ones, benefiting from currency devaluation, saw a surge in profit margins, while Japanese peers didn't gain from yen depreciation, as more than half of their production bases are located in foreign countries, but still performed better than South Korean counterparts.
