Global Flexible Printed Circuit Board Market is estimated to reach $33 billion by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2016 to 2024. Flexible printed circuit board (FPCB) is a technology of assembling printed electric circuits on a flexible substrate. They are designed as a replacement for traditional wire harnesses. Increasing research and development has led to the development of new FPCBs that have been constantly contributing to the improvement and evolution of people’s modern life. They have the ability to adapt easily to miniaturization, uniformity in production, eliminate wiring errors, compact and highly suitable for mass production. FPCBs are highly used in cell phones, laptops, cameras, pacemakers, and cochlear implants among others. Technological advancements have led to the development of special PCBs such as metal core PCBs, SMT PCBs and among others. Standards and specifications have been developed by Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC) to provide a common ground of understanding for manufacturers and users of FPCBs.
Increasing demand for compact and flexible devices coupled with rising popularity for wearable devices are boosting the growth of the global flexible printed circuit board market. Moreover, technological advancements and expanding performance requirements by end-users are also expected to fuel the FPCB market. However, high initial costs and lack of trained personal to operate may hinder the growth of the market. Furthermore, growing applications in automated robots, automotive sector and healthcare would provide growth opportunities in the coming years.
