The Asian PCB market, worth $36.25 billion, accounts for nearly 75% of the global PCB industry. Southeast Asia, including China, accounts for $27.25 billion, and Japan, $9 billion. However, the Southeast Asian PCB market including China suffered a 5.4% drop in its 2008 revenues, while the Japanese market declined by 5.3%.
