Prices of Copper-Clad Laminates Continue to Rise

12/18/2020 | I-Connect007 China Team
Forces within and outside the PCB industry have led to concerns over rising prices for raw materials of copper-clad laminates (CCL). Recently, two major explosions at epoxy resin plants in China had a great impact on domestic resin suppliers. Prices have risen steadily in 2020, with leading CCL manufacturers announcing price increases of 20-30% recently. As the cost of raw materials such as electronic copper foil, resin and glass fiber have risen, the cost for manufacturing CCL has taken off as well.
