Researchmoz presents this most up-to-date research on"Global and China FPCB (Flexible Printed Circuit Board) Industry Report,2013 - 2014".The report focuses primarily on quantitative market metrics in order to characterize the growth and evolution of the Remote Patient Monitoring Market.
The global FPCB market valued USD11.321 billion with the YoY growth rate of 9.4% in 2013, and will be worth USD12.008 billion in 2014 and USD12.686 billion in 2015.
FPCB is mainly used in display (LCD Panel and Touch screen), computing (HDD and ODD) and communication (mobile phones). In 2013, the FPCB applied to the computer field occupied 25%, of which 80% was dominated by Japanese companiess; however, this market is gradually shrinking.
In the field of mobile phones and tablet PCs, only the vendors such as Samsung, Apple, LG, Sony, HTC and Nokia who have high quality requirements like to adopt FPCB, while other ones may replace FPCB with FFC or common connectors. The FPCB purchase amount of Samsung and Apple is equivalent to over 50% of the global FPCB market.
In 2013, the most significant change of the FPCB industry lied in the slumping profit margin of veterans and the soaring profit margin of new entrants. Veterans lagged behind new entrants in equipment and technical R & D strength. After a high starting point and early difficulties, new entrants witnessed a significant increase in profit margin. In addition, the production bases of veterans were mostly located in Mainland China, where RMB appreciation and rising labor costs led to the substantial fall of profits.

Global and China Semiconductor Equipment Industry Report, 2013 - 2014 http://www.researchmoz.us/global-and-china-semiconductor-equipment-industry-report-2013-2014-report.html
After two years of recession, the semiconductor equipment market is projected to achieve growth in 2014. In 2011, the semiconductor equipment market size hit a record high of USD43.532 billion, but it witnessed a drop by 15.2% in 2012 and a further decline by 8.1% in 2013. The reduction came mainly as the steep decrease of backlog orders from North America and South Korea. Notably, the contracted orders from North America resulted largely from the glooming PC market and Intel’s reduction of capital expenditure for equipment, while the shrinkage of orders from South Korea was heavily duel to the suspension of investment in DRAM. In 2014, the driving force of the semiconductor equipment market is mainly sourced from foundry and memory. In particular, foundry began to step into 20nm domain, while memory is ushering in 3D era. In the era of 20nm, semiconductor vendors employ two routes: double/multiple patterning and EUV. Double/multiple patterning is more technologically advanced than EUV, although it means substantial cost rise in manufacturing and equipments, especially for etching equipments.

The world's largest FPCB company Mektron suffered its first loss since the establishment, because of three main reasons: First, HDD and ODD markets contracted; second, Mektron began to intervene in the price war; third, Mektron’s 45% output came from China where RMB appreciation and rising labor costs eroded profits. Mektron has increased the capacity in Taiwan, and Panasonic has also invested USD100 million in building a new FPCB base in Taiwan.
The gross margin of South Korea's largest FPCB company Interflex fell by nearly 50% in 2013, and its operating margin plummeted from 6.2% to 1.2%. The only FPCB company in the United States MFLEX whose manufacturing bases were in Mainland China also faced loss for the first time. Fast-growing companies such as Flexcom and BHflex transferred their main production bases to Vietnam.
Hon Hai Group's ZDT obtained more orders from Apple with the advantages of the parent company, so that its profit margin went up substantially. ZDT's main base is located in Shenzhen, but it has also transferred part of its bases to low-cost regions: its second base settles down in Qinhuangdao, and the third base is in Huai'an.
