Cable Connector Market Trends



  • Increasing automotive sector is driving the market growth


The demand for versatile miniature connectors, compliance with RoHS regulations, UL certification, IP ratings, and intelligent connectors with EMI/RFI suppression features are just a few of the important market trends. New automotive technology has changed how wiring is done in automobiles. Power, signal, and data transmission reliability under approved conditions depends on the important electrical components. The development of hybrid electric and electric vehicles has broadened the possibilities for transferring reliable connector technology from race cars to robotics in the form of autonomous vehicles. As a result, design, materials, and cable connectors have all undergone significant advancement. The manufacturers of cable connections are placing more and more emphasis on creating cutting-edge products in response to the growing need for connectors that can meet the needs of modern autos. For instance, in December 2021, Hirose Electric created the GT50 Series, a new wire-to-board connector. This tiny, dependable product line can withstand heat up to 125 degrees Celsius and has a 1mm pitch, making it perfect for automotive applications. The automotive industry's current trend change towards electric vehicles quickly displacing conventional internal combustion engines (ICE) engines is also anticipated to promote the growth of the cable connection market CAGR.


Additionally, the development of the market under study has been made possible by the rising number of fixed broadband connections. ITU reports that there had been a large increase in global fixed broadband subscriptions over the previous five years, which presents a growth opportunity for the market under investigation because connectors are needed to install these connections. The International Telecommunication Union predicts that by 2021, there will be roughly 1.3 billion fixed broadband connections worldwide.


Furthermore, the telecom industry is projected to play an even bigger role as 5G wireless technology begins gaining traction among businesses and consumers. The real-time visibility, comprehension, and control over an organization's assets, products, and services is what 5G expressly promises to provide. High-speed connection and fiber optic cable providers can help solve the issues associated with building the infrastructure required to deploy 5G networks. A better link is currently being sought, hence the copper-based mobile backhaul architecture is being replaced with packet-based transport through fiber. Fiber optic links, which have far bigger bandwidth capacity, are required to create 5G networks that can handle the further expansion of speeds. Thus, driving the cable connector market revenue.


Cable Connector Market Segment Insights:


Cable Connector Type Insights
