Globally, there has been rapid development in deploying smart devices that can adjust according to the changing dynamics of next-generation consoles, laptops, televisions, and mobile devices to be introduced into the market. This will result in having additional electrical and communication components in devices, thus increasing the number of printed circuit boards. Printed circuit boards are platforms on which ICs and connections to other electronic devices are installed and served as the brains of electrical devices. The high growth of IoT devices will accelerate the demand for printed circuit boards from OEMs of smart devices.

According to a report, one of the major drivers for this market is the high adoption of printed circuit boards in connected vehicles.
