Overview of connector market development

With the rapid growth of consumer electronics, automotive electronics and communication terminal markets and the continuous transfer of global connector production capacity to Asia and China, Asia has become the place with the greatest development potential in the connector market, while China will become the market with the fastest growth and the largest capacity in the global connector market. It is estimated that the growth rate of China's connector market will continue to exceed the global average in the future.

The main supporting fields of electrical connectors include transportation, communication, network, IT, medical treatment, home appliances, etc. The rapid development of the technical level of the products in the supporting fields and the rapid growth of the market are powerfully driving the development of connector technology. So far, connectors have developed into a series and specialized product with complete product categories, rich varieties and specifications, diverse structural types, subdivided professional directions, obvious industry characteristics, and standard system specifications.


In general, the development of connector technology shows the following characteristics: high-speed and digitalization of signal transmission, integration of various types of signal transmission, miniaturization and miniaturization of product volume, low cost of product, surface sticking of contact termination method, modular combination, convenience of plugging, etc.
