Status : August, 2020 | Semiconductor & Electronics | PPT format

Report Digest


Electronic systems have undergone tremendous transformation over the years on the coattails of rising demand for improved performance and better functionality in these systems. Today, printed circuit boards (PCBs) have become the foundation of majority of electronic products and their applications continue to grow well. PCBs have conductive pathways etched with copper sheets which are laminated to ensure that they do not conduct a signal or current.

PCB laminate involves circuit lamination with a non-conductive material and these laminates connect and support the electronic components using conductive tracks, pads and other features. Advances in PCB technology and its soaring demand in communication industry are primary factors influencing the development of PCB laminate market.

PCB Laminate Market – Notable Developments

  • Panasonic has recently introduced ‘MEGTRON6’, a halogen-free multi-layer PCB material which can be used in communication infrastructure equipment and are suitable for 5G systems. The new material not only contributes to the higher-capacity and faster data transmission but also enhances ease of manufacturing and processing of multi-layer PCBs with more than 20 layers.
  • At IPC APEX EXPO 2019, Ventec International Group Co., Ltd. showcased its latest high reliability PCB materials with key focus on its extended tec-speed 20.0, a series of ceramic-filled hydrocarbon thermoset materials, designed for the world’s most demanding high-frequency PCB applications.
