DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nswtrb/guide_to_the) has announced the addition of the "Guide to the Electronics and PCB Industries in Eastern Europe and Former Soviet Union" report to their offering.
The report provides key facts for each of 16 selected countries in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. It is intended as a guide to companies wishing to do business in these countries and wanting to identify potential suppliers, potential clients or potential competition. The information presented includes electronics production value, PCB (Printed Circuit Board) production value and PCB market value for each country. Pie charts split out the electronics production by market. OEMs, EMS providers and PCB fabricators are listed for each country.
- The following countries are reviewed under the heading Eastern Europe: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
- Countries reviewed under the heading Former Soviet Union include: Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.
- Each chapter provides key facts for each one of the 16 countries including electronics production value accompanied by pie chart with market splits. OEMs, EMS providers and PCB fabricators are listed for each country.
- Together, these countries accounted for electronics production worth €55 billion in 2013, for which the PCB market is estimated at slightly under €2.2 billion while total PCB production in this region is estimated at only €333 million.
- Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union presents an interesting picture of a region in which many Eastern European countries, formerly aligned with the Soviet Union are now members of the EU while the remaining Russian satellite countries have trade agreements with both the EU and with Russia to greater or lesser extents.
- An interesting point to emerge during the research, was how heavily concentrated the FSU aerospace industry was in Ukraine. Antonov is based in Kiev. KSAMC is in Kharkiv, north of the conflict zone in the east of Ukraine. Although Russia retained its nuclear industry after the split with Ukraine, the aerospace industry remained under Ukraine's governance. As Russia seeks to rebuild its technology base, there are parts of Ukraine which would enhance its capability if they were to return to Russian governance.
- One of the smaller countries, Croatia joined the EU in 2013 as the 28th state. Its electronics industry is small with total production value estimated at 200m, and is dominated by industrial (industrial, instrumentation & control) and communications. FSC has identified only three very small board shops in Croatia: IDT-TIM, Markovac and Tiplon Printed Boards. These make single-sided and double-sided boards for prototypes only.
- In contrast to Croatia, one of the largest electronics producers in the region, Poland, has grown faster during 2011-2013 than any of the other east European countries. The value of its electronics production in 2013 is estimated at €6.8 billion. It is home to most of the leading automotive OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers as well as being a major production hub for white goods. Poland is also home to a dozen small PCB fabricators, all with annual revenues less than 10m and most less than 5m.
