The global printed circuit board market has grown from US $7 billion in the 1980s to approximately US $60 billion today. Asian PCB suppliers have gained substantial market share through lower cost PCB products. However, was "lower cost" the only reason?
Further questions are:
•How do Asian PCB boards compare to global PCB boards in terms of PCB fabrication technology and quality?
•How can European PCB makers learn to differentiate?
•What is needed when sourcing PCB products in a global market?
At the website of ECWC13, PCB manufacturers, EMS companies, and OEMs will find answers and more information about the future development of the global PCB market.
