Connector Industry Forecast

Connector Industry Forecast

2016 was a year of recovery and growth for the connector industry. Year-over-year, total connector sales grew +4.1% to $54,164 million. Although not all regions saw growth, China had double-digit expansion while Europe and ROW had solid mid-single digit growth. Japan and Asia Pacific the two regions that did not grow, declined 7.8% and 3.4% respectively. North America, who saw sales decline 3.1% in 2015, saw sales grow 3.1% in 2016. In US dollars, Japan’s decline of -7.8% means connector sales have declined three of the last four years, from a high of $6,400 million in 2012, to $4,391 million in 2016. This represents a loss of over 31% of connector sales in only four years! Asia Pacific’s decline of -3.4% is the first decline in sales they have experienced since the 2009 financial crisis. What is even more astounding is that Asia Pacific is now almost twice the size of Japan. Ten years ago, Japan was larger than Asia Pacific.

The Chinese connector market’s gain of 11.9% was the largest gain in 2016, and puts them almost five billion dollars ahead of any other region. It is interesting to note that in 10 years, the Chinese market has almost doubled in size, going from $8,262 million in 2006 to $16,465 million in 2016. At the same time, China’s market share has grown from 19.1% of the total world market to 30.4%. Although Europe had good growth, increasing sales by 5.4%, they still have only seen one period over the last five years where they had consecutive year-over-year growth. This inconsistent growth puts them below sales levels seen as little as five years ago. The ROW region, which had the second greatest year-over-year increase in 2016, is still experiencing market share loss, with market share dropping from 5.4% in 2006 to 4.5% in 2016.
