2011 was a good year for the PCB materials industry despite troubles and uncertainty throughout the global economy. PCBs were buoyed by the growth in mobile electronics, which has raised the demand for thinner, lighter, and more capable materials. Two obstacles have hampered this build up in the need for more components and parts made from PCBs. The first problem is the need for more rapid prototyping despite the increase in the complexity of the designs. The second, and perhaps even more pressing issue, has been the major global supply issues created by both increased demand and the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan. When combined with the shaky economy it is no wonder companies are reevaluating both the PCB suppliers and their supply chains.
