APCB Sees DRAM Module Boards as New Growth Driver


Reading time ( words)

APCB, after experiencing lackluster revenue and profit performances in the first half of 2019, expects to perform better in the second half on increased shipments of high-end DRAM module boards, with its third-quarter revenues likely to enjoy a 10% sequential growth.

The Taiwan-based PCB maker saw its capacity utilization rate at its plant in Kunshan, China fall to 70% in the first half of the year from 80% a year earlier due to the US-China trade war. And the utilization rates at plants in Taiwan and Thailand also declined to 60% and 50%, respectively.
