With the trend of thinner and lighter consumer electronics products, FPC flexible boards are forced to lay more wires in a limited area, and continue to develop in the direction of ultra-fine lines such as thin line width, tight wiring, and fine craftsmanship, in order to meet the specific functions of downstream products. Needs and facing increasingly severe environmental pressures, high-density, thin, multi-layer FPC, rigid-flexible panels and environmentally friendly FPC soft boards are gradually becoming the direction of future development.
The demand for thinner and lighter mobile phones and tablet PCs has led to an increase in the market space of FPC. In the evolution of intelligent and light-weight mobile electronic products, FPC has been fully utilized due to its high density, light weight, thin thickness, bending resistance, flexible structure and high temperature resistance. Use in azimuth. For example, at least 20 FPCs are needed in the new Apple mobile phone, and the flat products will be further thinner and lighter, which will increase the demand for FPC products. At the same time, domestic leading brands such as Huawei, OPPO, and vivo will also increase the amount of FPC.
In China, FPC board technology has also received much attention in recent years. In addition to the familiar display and mobile phone screens, the emerging industries such as wearable devices, VR, and drones are also inseparable from this technology. There is a lot of room for the development of the domestic FPC soft board industry. At present, the FPC soft board has grown to 31.6 billion yuan in the Chinese market. It is expected that by 2021, the Chinese FPC market is expected to reach 51.6 billion yuan, with a compound growth rate of 10%. It is foreseeable that the market demand for FPC will maintain a certain growth rate in the future.
