My Mighty Mule gate opener quit working two days after installing. It worked intermittently then quit all together.
Update 2017: After I shot this video, I ended up replacing the board under warranty and it has worked well for years.
Internet of Things, Automotive Electronics Pushing FPCB Industry Expansion
Flexible Printed Circuit Boards Market report, created by Allied Survey, prophecies that the worldwide market is likely to gather 27 billion dollars by the year 2022, fast growing at a CAGR of 10.4Per-cent from 2016 To 2022.
Asia-Pacific led the world-wide market, as far as revenue, comprising greater than 46Pct in 2015, then North America.
FPCBs are frequently used across applications for instance , LCD display, phone screen, connectivity antennas, and flexible circuitry used in rechargeable batteries. Boost in demand for consumer electronic items, surge in fascination with Internet of Things (IoT), and consumption of FPCBs in motor vehicle applications drive the market progress. Additionally, increase in desire for programmed bots is supposed to deliver highly profitable chances to market members. Multilayer FPCBs directed the FPCBs industry, and is anticipated to keep this trend through the forecast period of time. In spite of this, the rigid-flex FPCBs segment is likely to witness significant development in the long term, attributable to the lightweight size and low power usage.
Among consumer, gadgets ruled the world-wide market in 2015, comprising about 30% market share. However, automotive electronics is predicted to increase at the highest possible CAGR of 10.7%, as a result of increase in demand for sturdy products with increased efficiency.
Asia-Pacific was the main revenue donor in 2015, and is anticipated to keep up its dominance in the foreseeable future, on account of increase in amount of electronic applications. Besides, improvements in electronic products and industrial systems are expected to skyrocket the FPCBs market growth rate, especially in the Asian countries, which include China, Japan, Oceania, plus India.
Flexible PCBs are hugely productive interconnectivity alternatives utilized for a wide selection of electronic devices with elaborate circuitry. Besides, they have a good number of benefits for instance , high efficiency and decreased system maintenance. Multilayer FPCBs account for more or less 30% of the complete FPCBs market, because of their resilience and high efficiency. At the same time, sizeable desire for electronics applications and customer shift towards small sized printing to realize better efficiency are expected to stimulate its use in the electronic products, motor vehicle, as well as other industry sectors, says Jeshin Jayamon, Research Analyzer, Semiconductor & Electronics Research, Allied Survey.
LAMEA is estimated to expand at the highest possible CAGR over the analysis period of time, on account of increase in handheld appliances and surge in the use of FPCBs in motor vehicle applications. Besides, technological advancements to overcome power loss complications in extreme situations are projected to deliver financially rewarding chances for market competitors in the foreseeable future.
