Continued Slow Growth Expected for Printed Circuit Board Market
The North American PCB Market Report reported IPC’s final estimates of 2015 market size.
The North American PCB Market Report, published recently by IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries®, reported IPC’s final estimates of 2015 market size for rigid PCBs and flexible circuits in North America. Although North American PCB production decreased 4.3% in 2015 to $2.9 billion, the PCB market grew 1.4% to an estimated $3.4 billion.
Growth in the North American PCB market was driven by flexible circuit sales, which increased in double digits in 2014, while rigid PCB sales declined slightly. The outlook for PCB sales in the coming year is for continued slow growth, with normal seasonal patterns.
