The global printed circuit board market size was valued at USD 69.69 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 71.57 billion in 2024 to USD 113.49 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.

Printed circuit boards are hard components that transmit current from one part of an electronic component to another. These hard substrates provide additional physical strength and support for the wiring area due to the complexity of socketed and surface-mounted components. Most PCBs are manufactured from fiberglass, composite epoxy, and other composite materials. In addition, the majority of PCB designs are simple and composed of single layers and more sophisticated hardware devices such as computers, graphic cards, and motherboards, which have multiple layers. Technological advancements in display solutions, such as folding televisions and curved displays, are poised to boost the demand for flexible PCBs in the long term.

The product is more often used in computers, yet it has diverse applications across devices such as TVs, radios, cell phones, and digital cameras. In addition to the dominant use of PCB assembly in consumer electronics, it has increasing applications in automotive, telecommunication, healthcare, energy and power, and others (military, utilities). Additionally, budding automation needs and increased demand for smart electronic devices in industrial engineering have provided strength to the demand for printed circuit boards across the semiconductor and electronics industry.

The COVID-19 pandemic hampered the global supply chain of the semiconductor industry and led to electronics shortages globally. However, post-pandemic, the demand for printed circuit boards has increased, and the sales and price of PCB boards are poised to increase in the coming years.

Printed Circuit Board Market Trends

Dominant Application in New Age Electronics Drives the Trend for Flexible PCBs

Printed Circuit Board Market Growth Factors

Growing Applications of HDI Boards in the Automotive Sector to Propel Market Growth

PCB discovery has enabled the compactness of electronic components that provide better conductivity and transmit currents to different components in a precise manner. High-density interconnect (HDI) PCBs have a higher wiring density that significantly reduces the size and weight of the PCB panels. These high-density interconnect PCBs are cost-effective, extremely reliable, and compatible with low-pitch IC packages that support high-speed signal transmission. These features expand the adoption of HDI boards in various fields, including aviation, automobile, and miniaturized electronic gadgets. These capabilities of HDI circuit boards are anticipated to drive the printed circuit board market growth in the long term.


Need for High Precision and Shortage of Skilled Workforce May Hamper PCB Manufacturing

Printed circuit boards are complex to manufacture in small and compact spaces, extra precision and very tiny pad sizes are needed to manufacture them. These challenges are hampering the fabrication and assembly of PCB units. Furthermore, the manufacturing of compact PCB units for high-speed signal transmission and safety requires precision engineering and a skilled workforce. These fabrication needs hamper the current growth rates of the PCB industry.
