Positively optimistic 5G PCB era

4G changes our lives, and 5G changes our era. Because of this, the beginning of 5G, global competition is particularly fierce.

PCB as the "mother of electronic products", profound changes in the downstream consumer market will directly affect the development trajectory of the PCB industry. The industry generally believes that in the next three to five years, 5G communications will surpass today's two major application markets, smart terminals and automotive electronics, and become the number one engine driving the growth of the PCB industry.

China PCB enters the 5G era

Since 2010, the growth rate of global PCB production value has generally declined. On the one hand, fast-iterative new terminal technologies continue to impact low-end production capacity. Single and double panels, which once ranked first in output value, are gradually being replaced by high-end production capacities such as multilayer PCB, HDI PCB, FPC, and rigid-flex boards. On the other hand, the weak terminal market demand and the abnormal price increase of raw materials have also made the entire industry chain turbulent. PCB companies are committed to reshaping their core competitiveness, transforming from "winning by quantity" to "winning by quality" and "winning by technology." ".

What is proud of is that under the background of both the global electronics market and the global PCB output value growth rate, the annual growth rate of China's PCB output value is higher than that of the world, and the proportion of total output value in the world has also increased significantly. Obviously, China has become a global PCB. The largest producer of the industry, China's PCB industry has a better state to welcome the arrival of 5G communications! Looking at local PCB manufacturers, they have officially entered the 5G trial production stage. At the same time, more and more local PCB companies are not to be outdone and are actively participating in the 5G competition. Layout 5G PCB production base...It can be seen that 5G communication has become an indispensable battle for Chinese PCB companies.

Actively optimistic about the 5GPCB market

In fact, 5G communication has been mentioned for several years, and the actual product launch should be in 2019. Therefore, the current pattern of the 5G industry chain has not yet formed, and all companies are eligible to fight for the right to speak in 5G. It is foreseeable that 5G will mature and develop rapidly in the next three years. This 5G PCB competition must be very exciting! "

Since last year, POE began to test 5G products for customers, and has begun to produce some medium-volume 5G orders for some customers. POE is an OEM manufacturer, focusing on PCB and PCBA manufacturing for more than 24 years. We have the ability to manufacture PCBs, ranging from basic single-sided boards to 40-layer multi-layers, and provide one-stop turnkey services, including PCB layout, manufacturing, assembly, component sourcing, functional testing services, etc.

According to relevant industry research data, the annual output value of PCBs for radio frequency side base stations brought by only 5G in the world can reach more than 24 billion yuan per year (Mainland China is expected to account for 50%), which is more than four times that of 4G. Based on the 5G PCB technical specifications, in addition to the needs of the PCB itself, the application of 5G will bring new growth momentum to upstream suppliers such as high-frequency and high-speed materials, more sophisticated production and testing equipment, and new surface treatment processes.

From a design perspective, estimate the market value of 5G communication to the PCB industry. The popularization of 5G requires more radio frequency transmitting equipment in the same area. In other words, a large number of signal radio frequency devices are needed to meet the requirements of 5G data transmission and all-weather coverage of the entire social area. The demand for these equipment is a huge driving force for the processing of high-frequency plates and high-frequency circuit boards.
