Innovative Technologies Drive PCB Industry Growth
PCB growth has slowed in recent years, though last year the growth rate was slightly higher than the 2% of the last three years. Estimates by IEK of Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan show that the PCB industry will continue to grow in 2015 at a rate of 3-5% with an annual output of RMB 576 billion (USD 93.8 billion). The PCB as a key parts provider to mainland brand name cell phone makers have benefited from the rise of Chinese mainland cell phone manufacturers, in particular industry leaders like ZTE, Huawei, Coolpad, Lenovo, and Xiaomi. The mainland brand name cell phones have contributed a lot to the growth of Taiwan’s PCB providers. Research into the PCB industry plays a big role in the overall industry capacity in China. The PCB industry growth provides a key pillar of the strong development for the smart terminal industry.
Shenzhen International Circuit Sourcing Show 2015 (CS Show 2015), jointly organized by SPCA, TPCA, CCPIT and Reed Exhibitions, will take place in Hall 6 of Shenzhen Conference and Exhibition Center from August 25 to August 27. Under the theme of “Innovation Drive”, the event will be a one-stop procurement platform for PCB/FPC customers - upstream and downstream. The show is designed to help China transition from manufacturer to key innovator. Over three days, the strong R&D and manufacturing capacity in South China will be shown to the whole PCB industry. The many innovative products will help boost the strength of the event and highlight the exceptional development momentum of the national industry.
Top Quality Procurement Platform To Help Chinese PCB Industry Recover
With the continuous economic development and opening up process of the past decade, the electronics manufacturing industry has become a pillar of national industrial growth. Meanwhile, globally, China has become a key electronics consumer. The PCB market has enjoyed a steady rise in demands. Thanks to the shift of the global PCB focus to Asia (mainly Mainland China), China has rapidly become a leading PCB manufacturer and consumer. The Chinese PCB industry output volume far surpassed Japan, the traditional industry leader. It is expected that the PCB industry output in China will grow at an annual rate of 6% between 2012 and 2017, with the total industry value to reach USD 29 billion, or accounting for 44.1% of the global total. Asia represents the focus of the global industry, and China the focus of Asia.
However, despite such massive scale, the domestic PCB industry still faces many challenges, including a limited business scope and product catalog, absence of greater development momentum and slower development pace than other electronics manufacturing sectors. Also, rising competition in the international market is forcing the industry to outdate older production technologies faster than before. Therefore, China’s PCB businesses must integrate. Difficulties due to lack of innovative technologies will remain for some time.
The year 2015 is destined to be a watershed for the Chinese PCB industry as it moves to enhance integration, improve technologies and pursue industry upgrade against a backdrop of improving industry environment and adjusted industry policies. Today, the CS Show in Shenzhen provides the latest industry intelligence and shares the hottest industry topics to help PCB players keep pace with the evolving industry landscape. The event helps enhance competitiveness of Chinese companies in the international market and drives industry upgrade.
A Procurement Fast-Track To Link Upstream, Downstream Players As Shenzhen Readies Itself For PCB Industry Development
The only PCB/FPC procurement event in China, CS Show 2015 offers the optimum platform for the PCB players to gather products, technology, and marketing resources. It also offers a great opportunity to generate business leads. To make a PCB procurement event more successful, a nice host city is a must. A city with strategic location and industry resources is a nice choice. Shenzhen as the key electronics industry hub and the center of PCB industry in South China provides the best venue for CS Show 2015.
Statistics show that nearly 40% of PCB output in China concentrates in Shenzhen. More than 500 PCB companies in Shenzhen generate a total industry output worth over 50 billion yuan every year. Now Shenzhen has the biggest concentration of PCB players in China. It also provides the most lively industry scene with the biggest potentials for further growth. To organize an international procurement event in such a hub no doubt will attract even more players to come. More companies will gather to network, in a process to better integrate resources along the PCB industry chain and promote further development of the industry. As such, the event offers a great opportunity for industry growth in Shenzhen and the whole South China region.
Strong players gather at leading industry event in search for disruptive growth opportunities
CS Show 2015 will offer a richer array of products on show, including not only PCB offerings, but also emerging products and technologies represented by the mobile internet, IoT, smart grid, new energy automobiles, smart wearables, and smart home. With the continuing trend towards automation and smart technologies, the PCB industry is sure to embrace the smart wave. Building on its long tradition as a high quality commerce platform, CS Show will lead the drive of PCB industry upgrade and technological breakthroughs by gathering together all industry leaders in the fields of smart production, green technologies, new materials, and new processes.
Another key strength of CS Show 2015 is that the event takes place parallel to the key electronics manufacturing industry event of NEPCON South China 2015 in the same venue. Both events share the over 35,000 downstream customers. For trade visitors and procurers, NEPCON South China 2015 represents one of the biggest SMT events in Asia. It is also the most prestigious SMT event in China, covering SMT, surface welding, electronic measurement, electronics manufacturing automation, solder paste printing, ESD, and smart hardware. All these products and technologies to feature at NEPCON are closely related to CS Show. Both events join hands and can better relate to upstream and downstream players. Both are complementary to each other, whereby they help each other to relate to more end customers and agents. Both offer better solutions to each other. Such complementary layout in Shenzhen will offer the biggest international electronics manufacturing event in Asia.
Leading PCB brand names gather as the pre-registreation platform provides exhibitors with a fast-track to the event
According to the organizers, CS Show 2015 has secured the presence of many leading brand names home and abroad, including Kinwong, Suntak, Yongjie, Wuzhou Circuit Group, Bomin Electronics, Brain Power, Yaohua, Fastprint, Hongli, Chaohua Tech, King Brother, Multilayer PCB Technology, Hangsheng, Accelerated Printed Circuit, Dongjian, Zhongshenglong Electronics, Star River, and Fuchangfa Printing Group. These exhibitors will bring about the most advanced green PCB manufacturing equipment, technologies, and materials to global terminal users. They will also offer interactive services.
To provide fast and convenient services to the customers, the organizers have launched a pre-registration platform whereby visitors can pre-register at the official website that offers all the event information at the fingertips of the visitors. Also, pre-registered visitors will obtain the badge and information packs by mail delivery free of charge. When they come to the event, the pre-registered visitors may be welcomed with happy surprises in the form of on-site gift giving. The international PCB procurement event combining intelligence, innovation, and sincere service will sure meet the expectations by all exhibitors, buyers, and trade visitors.
