At present, the most important consumer electronic product promoting the development of FPC is mobile phone. There is a large quantity of FPCs used in cell phones, such as the cell phone keyboard, battery, display screen, display components, and motherboards.
The second most important is LCD. LCD is divided into categories such as TN, STN and TFT. TN type LCD is applied in black and white display products, such as calculators and electronic watches; STN is mainly applied in colorful display products; TFT is mainly applied in medium-big flat panel display, such as notebooks, LCD Monitor, LCD TV. Due to the stable growth of those consumer products in recent years, FPC also grows stably. Its market and manufacture is mainly distributed in Japan. The combined growth rate of the IC substrate market in 2001~2006 promotes the corresponding growth of FPC.
