Global PCB & PCBA

Global PCB & PCBA market is segmented on the basis of substrate type, product type, materials type, application, and geography. PCB stands for printed circuit board and PCBA for printed circuit board assembly. A printed circuit board (PCB) is used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using pads, conductive tracks, and the other features etching from copper sheets being laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. Components such as capacitors, resistors or active devices are normally soldered on the PCB. There are several types of PCBs such as single sided, double sided, or multillayer PCB.

In assembly the bare board is populated with electronic components to form a functional printed circuit assembly (PCB) termed as a printed circuit board assembly (PCBA). PCBA is the board obtained after all printing solder paste on the PCB and then mounting different components such as integrated circuits (ICs), resistors, capacitors, and the other components like transformers depending on the application and desired characteristics of the board.Printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) normally undergoes reflow furnace heating to establish a mechanical connection between the components and the PCB. One thing is noted that assembling a circuit board is different from manufacturing a circuit board. Manufacturing printed circuit boards (PCB) includes different processes such as PCB designing and creating PCB prototype.

Once a PCB (printed circuit board) is ready, electronic components require to be soldered onto it before it is used in some electronic equipment or gadget. This assembly of electronic components depends on type of electronic components, type of circuit board, and purpose of the circuit board. The major drivers of the PCB & PCBA market are raising demand for 3C applications such as computer/ peripheral, communication and consumer electronics, advancement in smart phones, laptops, touchscreen tablets, and growing demand for consumer electronics.Based on substrate type, PCB & PCBA market is segmented into standard multilayer, rigid 1-2sided, HDI/ Microvia/ Build-up, IC substrate, flexible circuits, and rigid flex and so on. Based on product types, PCB & PCBA market is segmented into paper, CEM, FR-4, polyimide and so on.
