Executive Summary

Flexible printed circuit is an arrangement of electronic circuits by installing electronic apparatus on flexible plastic layer sheet, commonly used a Polyimide. Mainly, photolithographic technology is used in engineering flexible printed circuits. The polyimide substrate board used in flexible printed circuit allows board to adapt a preferred shape, or to flex throughout its use. The flexible printed circuit can be classified into four types, namely; single-sided circuit, double-sided circuit, multilayer circuit and rigid-flex circuit.

Single-sided flexible circuits defined as a singular conducting sheet manufactured by any metal or conductive polymer on a flexible dielectric film. Double-sided flex circuit boards is an extension on the singled sided flexible circuit, consist of two conductive layer of copper on both sides of the printed circuit board.

The multi-layer flexible circuits comprise more than two copper conductors layers that are interconnected by means of plated through holes. Rigid-flex circuits are a hybrid manufacture flexible circuit consisting of rigid and flexible circuits.

The flexible printed circuits can also be categorized on the basis of end users such as, consumer electronics, automotive electronics, industrial electronics and others.

The global flexible printed circuit (FPC) market is expected to increase at high growth rates during the forecasted period (2017-2021). The global flexible printed circuit is supported by various growth drivers, such as, increasing disposable income, increasing prevalence of IoT, increasing smartphone users, increasing demand of wearable devices, etc.
