Global and China Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) Industry Report 2009

The cell phone is the main driver for FPC market growth, in particular smart phone and high-end cell phones.
Feb. 2, 2010 - PRLog -- The cell phone is the main driver for FPC market growth, in particular smart phone and high-end cell phones. What's more, FPC will be increasingly applied to such consumer electronics as laptop, PND, digital camera, DV, LCD TV, plasma TV, and media players with the pursuit of performance and ultra-thin size. A great number of Laptop and FPTV has been provided with LED as backlight, and FPC is as usual the main mode to connect LED with main circuit. In the near future, the shaft connecting laptop screen with motherboard is likely to use FPC.

The FPC has still certain market in hard disk, although with a higher growth to be desired. It is impossible for NAND to quickly replace hard disk in short term, since the storage capacity grows ever in information era, and hard disk rather than NAND can meet the demand. Despite the price of NAND drops sharply, it still can’t keep up with the growth rate of mainstream storage density. NAND has some potential in non-mainstream market such as Netbook; the hard disk has still dominated the mainstream market. In a word, hard disk will enjoy advantages in storage density, reliability, maturity and price-performance ratio in next five years. Currently, there are only six hard disk manufacturers, and the number will decrease. In contrast, there are many FPC manufactures, but with weak price bargaining ability. Moreover, the FPC required by hard disk is single in style. All those above decide not a robust growth of FPC in hard disk market.

In optical disc drive industry, the growth of FPC rests with blue ray. In Addition, FPC has steady performance in printer market.

In automobile, the usage of ECU is attended by FPC with high reliability and space advantage. Now, auto ECU gets increasingly applied.
