Apex Expects Rising PCB Orders from 8K TVs


Reading time ( words)

PCB maker Apex International expects its 10-layer PCB shipments for 8K Ultra HD TVs to pick up each quarter in the second half and to become a key growth driver for the company during the period. Because of strong orders for both car-use and 8K TV-use 10-layer PCBs, Apex's revenues increased nearly 10% on year in the first half, while profits have also been picking up steadily.

Despite the fact that demand from 8K TVs will continue growing in the second half, that from the car-use sector is unlikely to see any major growth. Apex is currently a key PCB supplier to its Korea-based client for 8K TV products, while its new Japan-based client may also begin to pull in orders in the third quarter for its new 8K TV devices.
