Flexible Printed Circuit Boards Market report, published by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the global market is expected to garner $27 billion by 2022,growing at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2016-2022. 

Asia-Pacific dominated the global market, in terms of revenue, accounting for more than 46% in 2015, followed by North America. 

FPCBs are widely used across applications such as LCD display, mobile screen, connectivity antennas, and flexible circuitry used in rechargeable batteries. Growth in demand for consumer electronic goods, increase in popularity of Internet of Things (IoT), and adoption of FPCBs in automotive applications drive the market growth. Moreover, increase in demand for automated robots is expected to provide lucrative opportunities to market players. Multilayer FPCBs led the FPCBs market, and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. However, the rigid-flex FPCBs segment is expected to witness significant growth in the future, owing to the compact size and low power consumption. 

Among end user, consumer electronics dominated the global market in 2015, accounting for about 30% share. However, automotive electronics is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 10.7%, owing to increase in demand for durable devices with enhanced efficiency. 

Asia-Pacific was the major revenue contributor in 2015, and is expected to maintain its dominance in the future, owing to increase in number of electronic applications. Moreover, developments in consumer electronics and industrial systems are expected to boost the FPCBs market growth, especially in the Asian countries, such as China, Japan, Oceania, and India. 

Flexible PCBs are highly efficient interconnectivity solutions used for a wide range of electronic devices with complex circuitry. Moreover, they offer numerous benefits such as high efficiency and reduced system maintenance. Multilayer FPCBs represent almost 30% of the total FPCBs market, owing to their resilience and high efficiency. In addition, substantial demand for electronics applications and customer shift towards compact printing to achieve better efficiency are expected to fuel its adoption in the consumer electronics, automotive, and other industry sectors, states Jeshin Jayamon, Research Analyst, Semiconductor & Electronics Research, Allied Market Research. 

LAMEA is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the analysis period, owing to increase in portable appliances and rise in the adoption of FPCBs in automotive applications. Moreover, technological advancements to overcome power loss issues in extreme conditions are projected to offer lucrative opportunities for market players in the near future.
