This is especially true for connected devices found in rapidly-growing sectors, including connected vehicles (in-vehicle infotainment
systems and clusters), wearables (fitness trackers, smart watches), the smart home (including appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines), industrial (handheld devices, measuring devices) and healthcare (medical devices).
The rising applicability of rigid-flex PCBs, the penetration of in-vehicle infotainment
systems, the arrival of new energy vehicles, and the increased potential of ADAS are expected to contribute to the growth of the global automotive PCB market.
