CCL Firms to Thrive on 5G Infrastructure Construction Boom


Reading time ( words)

Demand for 5G infrastructure materials will grow exponentially in the next few years, generating many business opportunities for smaller suppliers of copper-clad laminates (CCL), which may change the competition scenario of the entire CCL sector, according to a Digitimes report citing industry sources.

Sources said the trait of high-frequency transmission in the 5G era will shorten the distances of signal transmissions and increase the density of signal receiving and transmitting nodes, thus requiring the construction of numerous large and small base stations. This will cause CCL demand for 5G communications equipment to grow by over fivefold in the coming few years.
