Research and Markets: Global and China FPCB (Flexible Printed Circuit Board) Industry Report, 2013-2014

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global and China FPCB (Flexible Printed Circuit Board) Industry Report, 2013-2014" report to their offering.

The global Flexible Printed Circuit Board (FPCB) market valued USD11.321 billion with a YoY growth rate of 9.4% in 2013, and will be worth USD12.008 billion in 2014 and USD12.686 billion in 2015.

FPCB is mainly used in display (LCD Panel and Touch screen), computing (HDD and ODD) and communication (mobile phones). In 2013, FPCB applied to the computer field occupied 25%, of which 80% was dominated by Japanese companies; however, this market is gradually shrinking.

In the field of mobile phones and tablet PCs, only the vendors such as Samsung, Apple, LG, Sony, HTC and Nokia who have high quality requirements like to adopt FPCB, while other ones may replace FPCB with FFC or common connectors. The FPCB purchase amount of Samsung and Apple is equivalent to over 50% of the global FPCB market.

In 2013, the most significant change of the FPCB industry lay in the slumping profit margin of veterans and the soaring profit margin of new entrants. Veterans lagged behind new entrants in equipment and technical R&D strength. After a high starting point and early difficulties, new entrants witnessed a significant increase in profit margin. In addition, the production bases of veterans were mostly located in Mainland China, where RMB appreciation and rising labor costs led to the substantial fall of profits.
