Research and Forecast of Connector Industry in China, 2015-2020

Overseas market keeps depressed in recent two years, also it makes overseas connector manufacturers speed up to distribute in China, technical level and production capacity of China domestic enterprises is largely raised, this accelerates the development of China connector market.

Application field of connector continuously expands, and medical application is expected to be among top5. According to statistics, top5 application fields of global connector sales are: automobile, computer & peripherals, communication, industrial equipment and aerospace & military, while the top5 applications in growing rate are: consumer electronics, traffic electronics, medical electronics, communication electronics, computer & peripherals.

Therefore, medical electronics will become new growth point of connector application.

In 2014, connector market size in China reached CNY 88.3 billion, up 8% compared with CNY 81.7 billion in 2013. With the rapid growth of China consumer electronics, network design, communication terminal product output and the continuous transferring of global connector production capacity into China, China has become the fastest and biggest connector market in the world.

In 2014, China connector output reached 12.864 billion, up 7.2% compared with 12 billion in 2013.

In 2014, as to end application market, the top 5 applications are still automotive electronics, computer and peripherals, telecommunications and data communication, industry, military/aerospace, the pattern change is not obvious, of which, the share of automotive electronics is 21.3%, computer & peripherals takes up 19.8%, others in proper order are telecommunications and data communication (17.9%), industry (11.1%) and military/aerospace (8.4%).

Electrical connector is one of components connecting electrical circuit, mainly taking the role of electrical connection and signal transmission between device and component, component and cabinet, system and subsystem, and keeping no change of signal distortion and energy loss between system and system, its quality affects the reliability of system equipment operation, and it belongs to important supporting product of host manufacturer, its technical feature is greatly affected by the technical development of downstream industry. A complete connector product generally needs to get through three processes – design, manufacture and package/assembly. As to design, it must consider resistance, pin form, insertion force, etc., manufacture generally gets through such flow – development & design, stamping, injection molding (plastic injection), electroplating, assembling, etc., for assembling, it must consider the reliability and stability of signal transmission (like circuit) affected by quality, so connector manufacturing technologies include such multi-element technologies: terminal manufacture, mould making, plastic molding, surface treatment, wire manufacture, assembly & inspection, test, etc.

With the development of downstream industries like computer & peripheral industry, automobile, communication, industry, aerospace/military and medical treatment, the connector overall develops towards miniaturization, high density, high-speed transmission and high frequency. To be specific, its technological development is mainly six directions as following: the first, FEC and IC packaging miniaturization: density is less than a space of 200mm; the second, correspond to various high-speed transmission interfaces, connector must be matched with high bandwidth and high-speed circuit, realizing high speed; the third, make sure reliability and stability of peak current mode, making full use of cooling air and providing more excellent long-term stability; the fourth, response to the trend of electronics environmental protection, lead-free, halogen-free and nanometer environmental protection materials will be widely adopted; the fifth, as to processing, standardized assembly will become increasingly common; the sixth, more new IC design electronic automation tools will be adopted, greatly speeding up the design quantity and direction of future connector.

Take the application of 3C field (laptop, cell phone, etc.) for example, because of the miniaturization, intelligentization, high speed, wireless and environmental protection of 3C products, the connectors applied in the above products also gradually develop out miniaturization technology, wireless transmission technology, high frequency high-speed transmission technology, environmental protection technology, etc., to be specific: the first, miniaturization technology requires smaller PIN space (center space of connector terminal), lower height; the second, high-frequency high speed transmission technology means it can transmit higher bandwidth and has good electromagnetic compatible and shielding technology, which can effectively solve electronic equipment signal transmission interference issue, simultaneously transmit uncompressed high-resolution video, multi-channel voice data and related control signal, and satisfy people’s pursue of HD video and HD audio; the third, wireless transmission technology can realize wireless signal sending & receiving function and satisfy the demand of people for mobility; the fourth, environmental protection, with continuous enhancement of recognition degree to environmental protection, environmental protection requirements in electronic products and production process become stricter and stricter, therefore, management and control ability to harmful substance in environment also become higher requirement to connector manufacturer.
