The demand for electronic yarn is strong, and the expansion of the leader is just in time
  Electronic yarn and electronic cloth are an important part of the PCB industry chain, and the trend of high-end electronic cloth is significant. Electronic cloth is woven from different types of electronic yarns. Electronic cloth is often used as a reinforcing material for copper clad laminates, and then applied to printed circuit boards. The trend of thinning and miniaturization of downstream electronic equipment requires electronic cloth to be thinner and lighter. At the same time, downstream requirements for high performance such as low dielectric/low loss and high resistance of electronic cloth are also increasing.
1. Electronic yarn and electronic cloth are an important part of the PCB industry chain

  Electronic cloth, copper clad laminate and printed circuit board are three closely related upstream and downstream basic material industries in the electronic circuit industry chain. Electronic cloth is an indispensable material for the production of copper clad laminate (CCL). The base material for the manufacture of circuit boards (PCBs).

  As an indispensable material for the production of copper clad laminates, electronic cloth is the basic material for the production of printed circuit boards. Electronic-grade glass fiber cloth refers to woven from electronic-grade glass fiber yarn, which can provide two-way (or multi-directional) reinforcement effect. It is an important basic material and is commonly known as "electronic cloth" in the industry.

  Fiberglass yarn refer to the melting and drawing of glass to make glass fiber strands, and then twisting and doubling to make yarns, which are the main raw materials of glass fiber cloth. Electronic yarn products mainly refer to continuous glass fiber spun yarn with a single fiber diameter of 9 microns and below.
The thickness of less than 28 microns is called ultra-thin cloth, and the thickness between 28-35 microns is called ultra-thin cloth. Ultra-thin cloth and ultra-thin cloth belong to high-end varieties, representing cloth types such as 1027; thickness of 36-100 microns is called The thin cloth belongs to the mid-end variety, and the representative cloth type is 1080; the thickness greater than 100 microns is called the thick cloth, which belongs to the low-end variety, and the representative cloth type is 7628.
2.The requirements for high-performance electronic cloth are increasing

  Electronic cloth can be divided into LowDk/Df cloth, Low CTE cloth, high resistance CAF cloth, non woven glass fiber, plain weave fabric, high impregnation cloth, high heat resistance cloth, High flat cloth, low impurity cloth, etc., the specific conditions are shown in the following table:

  From the perspective of my country's downstream fields, the proportion of communications has also increased rapidly, and the proportion of consumer electronics has dropped a lot. Communication is the field with the largest proportion of increase, from 23% in 2009 to 34% in 2015; consumer electronics accounted for the largest decrease, from 26% in 2009 to 18% in 2015, the proportion has been significantly lower than that of communication . The proportion of automotive electronics in my country increased from 12% in 2009 to 15% in 2015.

  Due to the strong demand in communication, automobile and other fields, according to electronics, the compound growth rate of my country's PCB output value is expected to reach 6% in 2020-2024. Considering the high-end of PCB, we believe that the growth rate of CCL will be higher than 6%. Considering the application or increase of multilayer boards in copper clad laminates, the growth rate of demand for glass cloth will be higher than that of copper clad laminates. We predict that the compound growth rate of electronic cloth demand during the 14th Five-Year Plan period is expected to reach 7%.
3. Risk Warning

  Production capacity exceeding expectations: With the advancement of economic development, the construction of communication base stations, and the advancement of automobile intelligentization, the demand for electronic cloth and electronic yarn continues to grow, but if the supply is more, the price of electronic yarn may fluctuate greatly.

  The technological progress of enterprises is slow, and it is difficult to be competitive in the future: as the downstream requirements for PCB, PCB for copper clad laminate, and copper clad laminate for electronic cloth are getting higher and higher, electronic cloth has a trend of thinner and lower dielectric. The speed of technological progress is slow, and it still stays in the market of traditional 7628 cloth (the market share is decreasing), and it will be difficult to gain a foothold in the market competition of electronic cloth in the future.
