CPCA Show and productronica China 2019 Review


Reading time ( words)

It was a busy week in China for the electronics industry. With multiple trade shows and conferences going on simultaneously in Shanghai, it appears from the crowds that the market is strong in China. We started at the newly branded PCB event, International Electronics Circuit Exhibition (Shanghai)—also known as the CPCA Show—which is a joint venture between HKPCA and the CPCA.

With more than 700 companies exhibiting over an exhibition area of 50,000 square meters, over 57,000 visitors attended the show. It kicked off with an opening ceremony where dignitaries from around the world joined in. In the opening remarks, the impact of the trade war was mentioned. Uncertainty is never good in a marketplace, but talking with the exhibitors, they expect the effect of 5G to carry them through the trade war and beyond. Of course, all are hoping for a swift resolution to this lingering uncertainty, but only time will tell.
