Automotive Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Automotive Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Market according to our research experts:

Growing Electric Vehicles Sales Driving the Market Growth

Many governments in some of the largest automotive markets like China, India, and Europe are relentlessly promoting the adoption of electric vehicles through various government incentives and policies aimed at boosting the sales of EVs to meet the carbon reduction goals under the Paris Climate Change Accord 2015 to which all these markets are signatories.

ICE engine vehicles and road transport contribute to about 25% of the total greenhouse gas emission worldwide. Thus the adoption of electric vehicles on a very large scale is imperative to mitigate the risks associated with climate change and to smoothen the transition to a greener future.

Various countries in Asia-Pacific and Europe have announced to ban the sales of new ICE vehicles by 2040 in favor of battery electric vehicles. Rising oil prices, growing pollution levels, increasing environmental consciousness, and a number of government incentives to promote electromobility are all contributing to very healthy growth in sales of EVs around the world. For Instance,

  • In China EV sales rose to 3.66 million units in 2022 (till September) posting a YoY growth of 119% while in India EV sals stood at 390399 units (till July) in 2022 registering a YoY increase of 333%.

An automotive PCB controls all the functions of a battery which the core component in an EV. Thus the massive growth in sales of EVs is providing a very high impetus to the growth of automotive PCB industry, worldwide. For instance

  • In June 2021 Changchun HELLA Automotive Lighting Co. Ltd. signed a joint venture with Danyang ENOR Photoelectric Co. Ltd. to develop, manufacture and sell automotive componenets like lighting modules, PCBs and control modules.
  • In October 2021 NOK Corporation launched several new products for elctromobility like sealing parts, flrxible printed boards (FPCBs) and anti vibration rubber materials at Automotive Engineering exposition Online 2021 in Jaoan.

Asia-Pacific Region Anticipated to Grow at Significant Level During the Forecast Period

The Asia -Pacific is the most dominant market followed by North America and Europe.

Asia -Pacific is home to India, China, Japan, and South Korea, the world's largest automobile manufacturing countries. India and China are some of the world's largest markets for electric vehicles, contributing to almost 60% of the worldwide electric vehicle sales, thus making Asia-Pacific the most lucrative market for automotive printed circuit boards. Automotive printed circuit boards are employed in the majority of these vehicles within the region to control the essential functions of an electric vehicle.

Europe and North America are also major markets due to the large presence of automotive OEMs and the rising electrification of the automotive industry, leading to high electric vehicle sales in these geographies. Thus, with companies coming up with innovations in this segment, the market for automotive Printed Circuit Boards is expected to grow over the forecast period for the electric vehicles segment. For instance,

  • in June 2022 PCB Technologies launched iNPACK a System in Package (SIP) solution which offers improved signal integrity and a significant reduction in unwanted inductance effects. The SIP solution can be utilized for a variety of applications in automobiles, consumer electronics, and medical devices industries.
  • In May 2021 Mahle AG premired new type of Printed Circuit Board based hydrogen fuel cell technology named Printed Circuit Board Fuel Cell (PCBFC) which will be integrated in a Renault Kangoo ZE.
