Indian PCB Market to Reach $6.33 Billion by 2024


Reading time ( words)

The Indian PCB (printed circuit board) market in India was worth US$2.37 Billion in 2018.

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are non-conductive, copper laminated boards that help to connect electronic and electrical components without the use of wires. These boards are composed of epoxy, fiberglass and other composite materials which reduce the complexity of the overall circuit design. PCBs are installed in various electronic products, ranging from consumer gadgets, such as PCs, tablets, smartphones and gaming consoles, to industrial and high-tech products. Over the past few years, the demand for PCBs in India has witnessed a steady rise on account of increasing investment in digitization and favorable government initiatives.

Looking forward, the PCB market in India is projected to reach $6.33 billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.9% during 2019-2024.

Indian PCB (Printed Circuit Board) Market: Drivers

India represents one of the largest and fastest growing consumer electronics market in the Asia Pacific region. Computers, laptops, mobile phones, etc. often use rigid PCBs in areas vital to the functionality of these devices, such as the motherboard, thereby creating a positive impact on the growth of the PCB industry.

PCBs find application in large number of industries which includes electronic products, automotive (dashboards, engine management system, power supplies etc.), medical (heart monitors, imaging probes, drug metering devices), defence (radar, armoured car control and security), lighting, broadcasting, Aerospace etc. It represents the foundation of a majority of electronic products and continues to evolve into new industries and applications.

The advancements made in the PCB functionalities and manufacturing along with the miniaturisation of semiconductor devices are expected to drive the demand for more complex PCBs with higher number of layers.

The Government of India is strongly encouraging the manufacturing and usage of PCBs in the country. It has launched many initiatives such as Make in India, Digital India, etc. Under these schemes, the government aims to encourage manufacturers to set up more local plants in the country by easing tax regime, reducing bureaucratic hurdles, etc. This is expected to bring in significant achievement in various end-use industries (automotive, electrical, etc.), thereby creating a positive impact on the overall PCB demand.

PCBs are the back bone of the electronics industry as it is deployed in almost all the electronic products from consumer gadgets to industrial high-tech products. The Indian electronic devices market has witnessed double digit growth rates driven by rising disposable incomes and increasing urbanisation levels in the country. This, coupled with miniaturisation of semiconductor devices and enhanced functionality in electronic products, is expected to drive the demand for more complex PCBs in the near future.

PCBs represent a fundamental component for the manufacturing of devices which are required for military navigation, guidance and control, electronic warfare, missiles and surveillance, and communication. India currently has the 5th largest defense budget in the world and these figures are expected to increase continuously over the next five years. Moreover, catalyzed by rising demand and increasing government initiatives, the defense equipment manufacturing industry in the country is also undergoing strong growth. This is also expected to drive the demand of PCBs in the next five years.
