Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are everywhere. Indeed, from cars to appliances, there is a huge demand for these components. In spite of supply chain issues during COVID-19, printed circuit board manufacturers have a bright future.
There is a high global demand for PCBs. In fact, this market could reach $69.4 billion by 2024. Consumer products are playing an important part in driving the demand.
However, PCBs aren't limited to phones and appliances. Manufacturers are also making products for the communication and medical sectors. They're changing the aerospace and automotive industries too.
Soon, the Internet of Things and the 5G market will create more opportunities for this industry. Also, PCB makers are using technology to offer new services. With AI-assisted design, they can create customized PCBs and components. With 3D printing, it's possible to create prototypes and small runs in a cost-effective manner. And some manufacturers now offer end-to-end solutions that include designing and testing PCBs.
According to MNI, compiler and publisher of the industrial data that powers IndustrySelect, there are currently 918 printed circuit board manufacturers in the United States. The industry accounts for 54,080 jobs as of July 2022, an increase of 3% over the past twelve months. The industry has reported total sales of $37.5 billion in 2022, up from $36.4 billion in 2021.

Almost a third of PCB manufacturers import raw materials. This is a higher percentage compared to US manufacturing as a whole (only 11%). Demand is high on a global level too. As a result, 41% of printed circuit board manufacturers sell their products in other countries compared to only 29% of the manufacturing sector as a whole.
You’ll find 38% of these businesses concentrated in the Western US. Distribution is somewhat even across the other regions.
