CS Show 2016 gathers PCB players in Greater China

PCB as a key fundamental component of electronics manufacturing accounts for about a quarter of total electronics components market value, representing the biggest factor in the market. Through major industry transformation, restructuring and technological upgrade, now Asia represents the focus of the global PCB market. Particularly, PCB and FPC manufacturers and processing players in the Chinese mainland have seized historical opportunities to see tremendous growth in terms of product quality and scope. Though the cutting-edge PCB technologies still remain with Japanese, Koreans, and Taiwanese, the Chinese mainland players who spearhead Made in China have the strength and capacity to challenge incumbent leaders.

Side by side with NEPCON South China 2016, CS Show 2016 will provide a one-stop PCB/FPC procurement opportunity to exhibitors and trade visitors as global buyers and PCB suppliers exchange face-to-face in a free-trade setting. Leading PCB players from Greater China will all be present to compete against top PCB players in Asia. The PCB zone will attract thousands of buyers from hot sectors across the industry. They come to exchange about key industry issues and play a key role in helping promote brand names.

Emerging electronics sectors rise as smart plant gains momentum

Apart from the two zones mentioned above, the EMS procurement center is highly anticipated by trade visitors as it represents a professional platform offered at NEPCON South China to electronics brand names, designers, and innovators as they seek electronics manufacturing service solutions.
