After two years of growth, the U.S. printed circuit assembly market decreased by -16.4% to $35.1B in 2019. The market value increased at an average annual rate of +2.9% over the period from 2013 to 2019; however, the trend pattern indicated some noticeable fluctuations being recorded throughout the analyzed period. Over the period under review, the market hit record highs at $41.9B in 2018, and then contracted markedly in the following year. This rapid decrease was caused b a plunge in printed circuit imports from China.
In terms of supplying countries, South Korea ($4.1B), Taiwan ($4.1B), and China ($3.4B) were the main suppliers of printed circuit assembly to the U.S., together accounting for 67% of total imports (IndexBox estimates). Imports from Taiwan recorded tangible growth in 2019, while supplies from China dropped dramatically in the last year. This went along with a new round of trade confrontation between the U.S. and China when the U.S. tries to limit the influence of Chinese technology companies on the American market.
Printed circuit assembly production, meanwhile, amounted to $18.3B in 2019. The total output value increased at an average annual rate of +1.4% from 2013 to 2019. Despite the pandemic, preliminary data show that in the first half, cumulative revenues of electronic component manufacturers did not decline from the previous year. This could indicate that the printed circuit assemblies and microelectronics market, in general, will be more resilient to a pandemic than many other markets.
Printed circuit assemblies constitute integrated electronic systems containing various semiconductors and other elements mounted on printed circuit boards. Such systems are widely used in the production of electronic, computer, digital, video, audio and other types of apparatus, in aerospace, industrial automation, telecommunications, and many other areas.
Therefore, the key factor determining the development of the printed circuit assembly market is the dynamics of industrial manufacturing, which, in turn, depends on economic growth, employment and income of the population, and investments, which altogether reflect the overall GDP growth. In addition, the growth of the market is also shaped by the growing digitalization of the economy, the development of smart technology and the Internet of Things, as well as the rapid development of mobile communication networks and the expansion of their coverage.
