Only 8 major European PCB manufacturers left
The consolidation within the European PCB industry started well before the onset of the current financial and economic crisis. In 2008, there were only 8 European companies that reported a turnover of more than €50 million.
Not surprisingly, the overwhelming majority of these companies are located in German-speaking countries. As the PCB industry is directly affected by the market downturn within the Automotive sector (e.g.), we will see a different picture in the 2009 analysis.
