India proposes to impose a 10% tariff on imported mobile phone PCB
As a key part of a mobile phone, a circuit board is embedded with a processor, a memory, and a wireless chip set, which can be said to be the core of an electronic device, and accounts for about half of the cost of a smart phone. At present, most smart phone manufacturers import circuit boards with embedded components to India and then assemble them locally. Last year, India sold a total of 134 million smartphones, making it the second largest smartphone market in the world after China.
Indian government and industry sources said that if the Indian Ministry of Finance agrees with this proposal, it may be implemented in the next few days, when the cost of PCBs that have imported built-in parts will increase, forcing manufacturers to switch to welding these parts in India.
Taiwan PCB industry analysis, this move has little effect on China's PCB industry, but it is feared that the cost of assembly plants in India will increase.
