The global printed circuit board market was nearly $60 billion in 2012, up 1.7% over 2011, according to IPC's World PCB Production Report for 2012.

According to the report:
* Asia overall has 90% share of world PCB production.
* China was the No. 1 PCB-producing nation, with a share of 42.8%.
* Japan was No. 2, with a share of 16%.
* South Korea surpassed Taiwan in 2012 to become the No. 3 global PCB producers.
* The United States remains in the No. 5 spot with a share of less than 5%.
* Vietnam joined the Top 10 list of PCB-producing countries, but still has a share of less than 1%.

Among the PCB categories covered in the IPC report, rigid flex saw the strongest growth in 2012. Strong growth was also seen in the market for high density-interconnect (HDI) microvia boards.

The report estimates 2012 PCB production value by product category and by country. It provides commentary on PCB industry trends by region and worldwide.
