Reading time ( words)

IPC's World PCB Production Report for the Year 2014 has been published and is available in the online store at 2014WORLDPCB. It is the most authoritative source of current PCB production value estimates, in both U.S. dollars and local currencies, by product type and by country. In addition, it includes commentary on global and regional PCB industry trends, a special section on metal-core PCBs, and historical data on regional PCB production trends.

In this year's report, you will find out what countries are the top producers of PCBs in high-growth segments such as microvia boards and rigid flexible circuits. Regional trends are also examined, including China's slowing production growth and the rise of Thailand and Vietnam among the top PCB-producing countries.

Now in its 36th year of continuous publication, this landmark annual study is the most trusted source of PCB production data, having been developed through a consensus process by a team of the world's leading PCB industry analysts.

The report can be purchased for immediate download in IPC's online store using a credit card. If you prefer to order the report using another form of payment, an electronic order form is available. The report costs $475 for IPC members and $950 for nonmembers.
