IPC announced the release of three annual printed-circuit-board (PCB) studies: the 2006-2007 Industry Analysis and Forecast for Flexible Circuits in North America, the 2006-2007 Industry Analysis and Forecast for Rigid PCBs and Laminates in North America, and Technology Trends for Printed Circuit Boards for the Year 2006. The first provides data and analysis on trends in the North American flexible circuit industry; according to this report, flex circuit production in North America has declined, but companies in the region are growing due to worldwide sales. The second report estimates the US rigid PCB market in 2006 at about $4.3 billion. The technology trends report notes that 21 percent of all laminates used were halogen-free, with an emerging market for halogen-free laminates, particularly in consumer electronics. With this technology in use, the market demand will continue to drive production growth. The flexible circuits and rigid PCB studies cost $475 for IPC members and $950 for nonmembers. The technology trends study costs $250 for members and $500 for nonmembers.
