In 2013, the most significant change of the FPCB industry lied in the slumping profit margin of veterans and the soaring profit margin of new entrants. Veterans lagged behind new entrants in equipment and technical R & D strength. After a high starting point and early difficulties, new entrants witnessed a significant increase in profit margin. In addition, the production bases of veterans were mostly located in Mainland China, where RMB appreciation and rising labor costs led to the substantial fall of profits.

The world's largest FPCB company Mektron suffered its first loss since the establishment, because of three main reasons: First, HDD and ODD markets contracted; second, Mektron began to intervene in the price war; third, Mektron's 45% output came from China where RMB appreciation and rising labor costs eroded profits. Mektron has increased the capacity in Taiwan, and Panasonic has also invested USD100 million in building a new FPCB base in Taiwan.

The gross margin of South Korea's largest FPCB company Interflex fell by nearly 50% in 2013, and its operating margin plummeted from 6.2% to 1.2%. The only FPCB company in the United States MFLEX whose manufacturing bases were in Mainland China also faced loss for the first time. Fast-growing companies such as Flexcom and BHflex transferred their main production bases to Vietnam.
Hon Hai Group's ZDT obtained more orders from Apple with the advantages of the parent company, so that its profit margin went up substantially. ZDT's main base is located in Shenzhen, but it has also transferred part of its bases to low-cost regions: its second base settles down in Qinhuangdao, and the third base is in Huai'an.

China is the world's largest smart phone market, but has experienced a decline in 2014, due to slower domestic economic growth and already high penetration of smart phones, presenting some kind of saturation on the market. Smart phone shipments reached 312 million units in China during Jan.-Oct. 2014, sliding by 10.4% compared with the same period in 2013, and is expected to arrive at 398 million units throughout the year 2014, down 9% against 2013. It is projected that China's economy will grow much slower in 2015, probably more dramatically than that in 2014. The Chinese smart phone market is estimated to fall by 13% in 2015 with 346 million units shipped.

The TFT-LCD industry touched the bottom in 2011, then has warmed up slowly since 2012 and is expected to reach its peak in early 2015, but it will fall into another lengthy decline stage by 2016. After the TFT-LCD industry slumped, TFT-LCD vendors in different countries chose varying countermeasures. South Korean vendors represented by Samsung strived to explore the OLED field. In Japan, Sharp transferred to be a small and medium-sized panel vendor, produced mobile phone panels with 8.5-generation lines and vigorously developed IGZO technology. Hitachi, Sony and Toshiba set up a joint venture ------ Japan Display (referred to as JDI) to develop LTPS technology. Taiwanese vendors developed 4K HD technology. Chinese mainland vendors promoted the construction of new production lines at low costs aggressively. As a result, Chinese mainland vendors are the most notable winners, followed by Taiwanese and Japanese counterparts, while Samsung is the biggest loser.
