PCB Demand Positive from Networking Device Segment in 2H19


Reading time ( words)

Despite growing economic uncertainty triggered by the US-China trade dispute, most Taiwan-based PCB makers still expect demand for rigid PCBs for networking device applications, particularly for switch and router products, to remain robust in the second half of 2019, Digitimes reported.

Rigid PCB suppliers, including Tripod Technology, HannStar Board, Gold Circuit Electronics, Apex International and Advanced Printed Circuit Board (APCB), have deepened their deployments in the networking device sectors for a long period, along with the clusters of Taiwan's IT industry. In addition to supplying rigid PCBs for switches, routers and other networking devices, some makers are ready to kick off volume production of related PCB products supporting 400G transmission specifications.
