As a gathering place for local governments to undertake industrial transfer, the western part of China has great appeal to eastern enterprises in areas such as land concessions, tax incentives and free agency on behalf of workers. At the same time, in the radiation area with Chengdu and Chongqing as the core Under the concept, a total of five development zones including Sui Nan Da, Cheng Su Yu, Cheng Nei Yu, Cheng Mian Le and Yan Chang Jiang have been developed. The "flowering" momentum of the PCB industry in the western region shows a rapid expansion in recent years. In addition, the domestic PCB industry transfer gradually formed a new pattern due to the domestic policy plus the mid-west development strategy. Based on this, the 2014 China (Midwest) PCB Technology Forum and Circuit Seminar "Chengdu Market" of the Cross-Strait PCB Industry, June 26 Day as about in China's western hinterland Chengdu Century City New International Convention and Exhibition Center, from Taiwan Industrial Technology Research Center (IEK), Shenzhen Circuit Board Industry Association (SPCA) and Guangdong Zheng Technology PCB industry gathered in the West, a total of PCB industry in the western part of China to develop the future.
Looking forward to the global industry trends
According to Prismark statistics, in 2013 the global PCB output value of 54.89 billion US dollars, compared with 1% growth in 2012. Concerns about the global PCB industry remains low, the global PCB market almost no major change. Dong Zhongming, a senior industry analyst at the Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute, analyzed the overview and layout of PCB industry in several major regions of the world in his report "Summarization and Future Layout of Circuit Industry in Both Sides of the Taiwan Strait." He said that from 2014 to 2017, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and other production areas in the future will maintain a positive growth trend, the annual growth rate of 1 to 5% of the low, steady growth trend. However, specific to the major PCB industry areas, there are significant differences.
Dong Zhongming predicted that in 2014 the global PCB output value of about 62.1 billion US dollars, of which about 45% from mainland China production, 15% of South Korea, Taiwan 13%, Japan 10%, is entirely sure that China is still the world's largest PCB production country. At present, PCB enterprises in mainland China are dominated mainly by small and medium-sized enterprises. In addition, the main application areas of PCBs are still mainly communication in China, driven by the equipment replacement effect of 3G conversion to 4G. Currently, the products are also rapidly deployed and are involved in higher-order . Dong Chung-ming also pointed out that South Korea's brand-driven PCB industry growth effect, coupled with the South Korean production line to local layout, so in 2013 the South Korean regional market accounted for 14.8%, officially surpassing Taiwan's 13.6%, becoming the world's second largest production area . However, South Korea's single-brand PCB production growth effect caused by the growth rate is lower than Taiwan and Japan's PCB growth in both regions. The production share of the two sides of Taiwan, as a result of the production capacity in the western region of China, will reduce the proportion of Taiwan's production. However, the regional output in Taiwan will still maintain its annual growth rate of about 2%. Data show that the total PCB output of Taiwanese businessmen across the Taiwan Strait grew by 1.32% in 2013; it is estimated to grow by 2.99% in 2014, and the trend of Taiwan's PCB industry's transfer to the mainland in 2014 will become more evident. In the proportion of PCB output in Taiwan, communications, consumer electronics, computer PCB decline, while lighting PCB products rose sharply. Speaking of Japan's PCB industry this year, Dong Zhongming pointed out that according to NT Information statistics, the Japanese PCB industry in 2013 fell -26.9% annual decline in Japan's PCB industry in 2014 Q1 hard-board output growth rate is better than production, indicating that high-end products shipped Increase, soft board continued to show a downward trend, both by the PC market and IC carrier plate out of production, domestic IC carrier production plummeted.
On the layout and development strategy of PCB industry in the future, Dong Zhongming suggested that manufacturers should make considerations. In the future, the layout and development of various regions will undergo a major evolution: from the past, the mainland began to flow toward the central and western parts of the country along the eastern coast, and the production of small settlers will surge; Taiwanese HDI, carrier board and other products to the main production in Taiwan, the eastern coastal production still accounts for a large proportion of the western region to PC-based circuit board production. The layout of Korean merchants still focuses on domestic areas; Japanese merchants continue to relocate their production lines.
Cluster layout continued
In the context of industrial transfer, coastal PCB enterprises are still in an orderly manner to the Mainland. As the western region has been identified as a major development center for NB, NB related manufacturers have been prompted to enter the layout. The western PCB industry chain has gradually gathered to form a regional distribution center for PC and NB PCB industries.
Commenting on the development of the PCB industry in the western region, He Jianming, Deputy Chief Secretary of Shenzhen Circuit Board Industry Association made an important statement on the development of PCB industry and the opportunities and trends in the terminal electronic market in the current gathering area of the western region. He pointed out that at present, When formed, Jiangxi, Anhui, Hubei, Chengdu and Chongqing as the representative of the electronic circuit industry park and the gathering development characteristics. Among them, the Chengdu-Chongqing area betting notebook computer industry pioneered the "brand + machine OEM + parts and components business" chain of interlocking industrial cluster development precedent, brought together by the precision technology, Founder Gaomi, Zhichao, Xin Xing Electronics, Otres, Hang Ling circuit boards, etc., more than 20 PCB and its supporting enterprises, the introduction of circuit board production capacity of about 5 million square meters. As a supporting role in promoting the transfer of Sichuan to Chongqing in the western region, the PCB industrial park in Suining, Guangan Electronic Circuit Industrial Park and Sichuan Mianyang Economic Development Zone, which are concentrated in Sichuan Province, are more prominent, taking a total of 40 PCB enterprises transferred to 2013 PCB production reached 2.2 million square meters, the annual output value of more than 1.76 billion yuan. In addition, the central region such as Hubei Huangshi PCB Industrial Park, Hubei Xiaogan South Industrial Park, Hubei Xiantao Electronic Circuit Industrial Park, Jiangxi Wanan Electronic Circuit Industrial Park, Jiangxi Ganzhou Electronic Circuit Industrial Park, Jiangxi Jiujiang Electronic Circuit Industrial Park, Anhui Tongling Electronics Circuit Industrial Park, PCB Park Industrial Park in Guangde, Yiyang Hi-tech Zone Venture Park and other investment in the rise, but also for the PCB industry cluster development and industrial chain has injected new vitality and power.
Close to the domestic consumption of the West, bring the advantages of notebook computer manufacturing industry and the construction of park management, integration into the regional economic development and other PCB industry economy will become the western PCB industry mature opportunities. He also said that the rise of China's demand for smart terminal brands and 4G network communications, new energy, sports and health care, smart security and other new demand markets is becoming an accelerator for the development of the electronics industry in western China. The PCB industry should wait for a new round of development. "Position determines the status and determine the outcome of the pattern," what Deputy Secretary-General suggested that in the current tide of industrial innovation, the layout of the western PCB enterprises need to plan the development strategy of enterprises, the advantage of resources in the west, and strive to become high-quality customer partners, Can actively invest in and develop new cutting-edge technology, and grow with customers.
Improve the industrial chain force high-end
The domestic consumer market continues to develop and provide a strong impetus. The PCBs in the Midwest have good potential for development. However, there are many problems in R & D, technology, brand, management and material supply, which have some impact on the PCB industry in the Midwest. At the symposium, Mei Zhengliang, director of Guangdong Zhengye Technology and Technology, pointed out that the R & D resources of the PCB industry in central and western China are scarce, the introduction and retention of R & D professionals are difficult, and both the production capacity and technological level are relatively low. In the Pearl River Delta and the Yangtze River Delta, PCB manufacturing and equipment, materials research and development base, while the transfer to the central and western Qilipu still PCB low-end products, the relatively low level of technology; to produce good products, you must have good materials, and Most domestic high-end materials such as FPC covering film, copper foil, filtration and environmental protection, which are independently developed and produced in China, rely on imports. For PCB equipment capacity, PCB special equipment in China is powerless, especially on the high-end precision large-scale equipment such as Impedance testing, ion contamination testing, laser drilling machines, vacuum presses, plasma cleaning and optical inspection equipment, etc .; both the PCB manufacturing, equipment and materials companies have not really established a well-known brands at home and abroad; Enterprise management has not been with the rapid development of PCB has been reform, unable to achieve sustainable development.
Although China has become a global PCB powerhouse, its failure to form a complete industrial chain has led to a big but not strong predicament in China's PCB industry. In this regard, Mei also expressed his point of view, he believes that, in order to enhance the domestic PCB industry, on the one hand, to independently research and development, including materials and auxiliary materials and chemical medicine, high-end materials, strengthen the copper foil material, membrane materials , Glass fiber materials, board materials (paper base, etc.), metal substrates, filter substrates, filter materials, environmental protection materials, copper ball, metal-plated syrup and etching syrup research and development production. On the other hand, independent research and development equipment, PCB equipment and equipment directly affect the PCB product quality and performance, is the key to China's PCB industry upgrade, according to the data show that China PCB equipment market in 2015 will reach 48.8 billion yuan From 2010 to 2015, the average annual compound growth rate reached 11.0%, significantly higher than the global market growth rate of 7.5%, indicating the robust growth potential of PCB equipment market in China. Mei also said that China's PCB industry should be bigger and stronger, and PCB industry should first be related to equipment to do together, as well as supporting the upstream and downstream industry chain, improve and integrate to enhance the technological level of the western PCB industry, breaking the foreign enterprises Monopoly of the situation, this will help promote the upgrading of the entire industry across, and gradually to bigger and stronger.
Future potential worth the wait
The Midwest PCB Technology Symposium was jointly organized by Reed Exhibitions Group, Shenzhen Circuit Board Industry Association (SPCA) and Taiwan Circuit Board Association (TPCA). During the seminar, NEPCON West China 2014, the oldest electronic trade show in the Asia-Pacific region, was also opened at New Century International Exhibition Center, Century City, Chengdu from June 25 to June 27. During the exhibition, He Jianming, SPCA Deputy Secretary-General, was fortunate enough to visit Chengdu Tomorrow Hi-Tech Industry Co., Ltd., one of the most representative PCB production private enterprises in Southwest China. It is understood that Chengdu, established in 2001, has advanced complete sets of production equipment and technology. At present, the production capacity reaches 30,000 m / month and the products can meet the needs of all grades and is at the leading level in southwestern China. However, focusing on the west, Wang Jin, deputy general manager of the company, said that the scale of the industrialization in the central and western regions is still not high, and the supporting industrial chain is not complete. For example, press-fitting, surface chemical nickel-gold, drilling and other foundries are not complete and relatively restrained The development of the entire western electronics industry. However, with the transfer of downstream electronic information products such as computers, communications equipment, automotive electronics, household appliances and green base stations to the central and western regions, the western PCB ethnic group will also face the spring breeze. Chongqing, Sichuan, Hubei, Anhui and other regions in the world top 500 electronic enterprises as the leader of the two-hour economic belt, will continue to gather downstream customer resources, especially for NB, communications and other PCB manufacturing enterprises to add bright colors, PCB industry in the Midwest in the future development Potential worth the wait.
It is reported that the general plan for the development of the western region is in three phases: from 2001 to 2010 for the establishment of a phase of development; from 2010 to 2030 for the rapid development phase; and from 2031 to 2050 for the full promotion of the modernization phase. So far, the foundational stage has been completed. The western region has entered a crucial period of well-to-do society, the period of social conflicts and the acceleration of transformation and development. In 2014, the state will carry out preliminary studies on the "13th Five-Year Plan" for the development of the western region and focus on the nine key areas including the key infrastructure construction in the western development. At present, the central and western regions are gradually adjusting their industrial structure adjustment and a number of high-tech industries and major equipment manufacturing industries are gradually taking shape. As the central and western PCB industrial park infrastructure and service facilities continue to improve, the western PCB industry chain will also be expanded And complete, China's PCB industry structure will shift to high-end, with the world's advanced PCB competition.
