China PCB Firms May See 5G Opportunities Affected by Trade War


Reading time ( words)

China-based PCB makers are eyeing bright business prospects for 2019, bolstered by numerous 5G base stations actively under construction in the country and their close partnerships with leading telecom equipment suppliers Huawei and ZTE. But the opportunities may be undermined by uncertain fallouts of the US-China trade war, Digitimes reports.

According to Digitimes, 5G mobile communication networks boast high transmission speed yet with smaller coverage areas, and therefore the number of 5G base stations needed will be more than twice that of 4G ones. This in turn will drastically drive up demand for PCBs, and the unit price of 5G-spec PCBs will double that of 4G ones, providing lucrative business opportunities for major China PCB makers including Shennan Circuits and Wus Printed Circuits.
