Analyst Review:

The global flexible printed circuit boards (FPCBs) market is expected to witness significant growth in the near future, owing to growth in sales of consumer electronics and automobiles. Flexible PCBs are designed to overcome limitations of rigid PCBs and manual wiring. Printed circuit boards (PCBs) were used earlier in industrial systems for data transmission. However, other industries, such as consumer electronics, energy & power, inverter & UPS, and automotive, have adopted FPCB to efficiently manage data transfer, owing to the advent of advanced technology and increase in awareness about the benefits of FPCB technology. Market players have focused on the development of innovative products for applications in telecommunication and electronic appliances to enhance their efficiency. FPCB enable high-frequency data transfer to improve efficiency and prevent power loss. Low power consumption and intense competition have resulted in industries adopting multilayer FPCBs, which has stimulated the market growth.

Numerous advantages such as lightweight nature, simple structuring, cost saving, and design freedom drive the market growth. However, challenges in error detection & handling methodologies and maintaining accuracy in artwork hamper the market growth. Nevertheless, adoption of FPCBs in flexible diode display used in organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) and flexible solar cells, and increase in demand for high-frequency electronic gadgets provide various growth opportunities to market players. However, prominent players have developed low-cost, compact, affordable, and energy-efficient printing techniques to increase the efficiency of the applications. Asia-Pacific is the major revenue contributor to the global market, followed by North America. It is projected that the market growth in North America and LAMEA is expected to significantly increase during the forecast period.
