Bare Printed Circuit Board Manufacturing - Industry Market Research Report

Bare Printed Circuit Board Manufacturing

The Bare Printed Circuit Board Manufacturing industry, which comprises companies that manufacture bare printed circuit boards (PCBs), has declined over the five years to 2019 as a stronger US dollar has contributed to lower import sales and more affordable alternatives from foreign manufacturers. However, strong demand from downstream markets, including computer, electrical and communication equipment manufacturers, has supported the industry, as well as slight import growth. Conversely, the industry has contended with volatile commodity prices that occurred during the former half of the current period; in particular, the price of copper has fluctuated significantly. Overall, industry revenue is expected to decline during the current period. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is anticipated to continue decreasing as import penetration continues.

This industry manufactures bare printed circuit boards (PCB), which are a major input for electronics manufacturing. Bare PCBs differ from other PCBs because they lack electronic components like transistors or capacitors. Electronics manufacturers add electronic components to bare PCBs to meet their specific product needs. Producers make bare PCBs from alternating conducting layers (e.g. copper foil) and dielectric layers (e.g. Teflon), which are laminated together with an epoxy resin.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
