Market Insights

The global rigid-flex PCBs market is expected to reach $5,316.3 million in 2026, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% from 2018 to 2026. A prominent factor driving the rigid-flex PCB market is the continual growth observed across the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. IoT has emerged as a critical technology in the IT industry, used to synchronize all smart objects across an integrated network via the Internet. The technology enables end-users to monitor and control connected devices and processes in real time. Additionally, with the rising deployment of digital solutions in a bid to transform existing business processes into connected ones, demand for IoT hardware, solutions, and services is expected to increase across the forecast period. The number of connected devices is expected to exceed 20.0 million by 2020, thereby driving demand for rigid-flex printed circuit boards worldwide. The IT and telecom sectors are witnessing strong and steady growth, with significant spending on ICT products and solutions. This, in turn, is anticipated to favor the demand for rigid-flex PCBs throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Market Synopsis

consumer electronics segment to cement its dominance in the rigid-flex PCB market

Consumer electronics represents the largest application segment for rigid-flex PCBs. In 2017, the segment accounted for more than a quarter of the global market value. The trend shall prolong, and the segment is presumed to retain its leading position, exhibiting strong growth through the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The anticipated growth in this segment will be driven by the growing adoption of rigid-flex circuit boards in smartphones, tablets, and wearable consumer gadgets (smartwatches, etc.). In addition, the superior benefits offered by the rigid-flex technology in terms of size, weight, reliability, and assembly cost are driving the use of these circuit boards in consumer electronic devices. On the other hand, budding application segments, including healthcare and automotive, are also presumed to register strong growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
