European Printed Circuit Board Market Outlook
A printed circuit board (PCB) is a plastic board made of a non-conductive material, such as plastic or fiber-glass, that has copper lines and pads connected to each other. These copper lines allow electrical charge to flow through the different components such as transistors, capacitors, and resistors that are located systematically on the PCB. These successfully fulfil the need for an electronic device that could fit components within the smallest amount of space possible. PCBs are used in monitors, control systems, internal devices, and scientific instruments in Medical applications. In consumer electronics, PCBs are used in mobile devices, computer electronics, recording devices, entertainment systems, and home appliances. In aerospace, they are used in navigation devices, monitoring equipment, testing equipment, and so on.

European Printed Circuit Board Market Growth Drivers 
Wearable electronics, flexible displays and medical applications, and flexible technology are pushing the industry increasingly towards flexible and flex-rigid PCBs. Flexible PCB technology is already outpacing rigid PCB in terms of sales growth. Miniature PCBs enable the creation of mini portable solar panels for consumer applications that include personal device charging, water heating, and Wi-Fi extension, which is driving the market growth.

European Printed Circuit Board Market Challenges 
Most of the PCB waste generated cannot be recycled and this poses a major challenge for the market as there are various hazardous waste disposal regulations imposed by various regulatory bodies in Europe. Increased cost of disposing PCB due to changing regulations regarding e-waste also hinders the market growth.
