CCL is not only the basic material of the electronics industry but also the main material for processing and manufacturing PCB. Under the background of electronic components’ rapid development and the 5G industry, the CCL industry in China is witnessed rapid growth.
According to the data disclosed by the China Electronic Materials Industry Association Copper Clad Laminate Materials Branch (CCLA), China’s CCL output generally showed an upward trend from 2013 to 2020. Its output was 730 million square meters in 2020 with a year-on-year increase of 6.88%. In 2021, the output of PCB CCL in China achieved 1 billion square meters.
It is worth mentioning that a high degree of concentration of a CCL manufacture can bring a higher concentration of high-end products. Here are top 8 China’s CCL manufacturers as follows, let’s check them out.
