Cables and Connectors Market Drivers
Surge in demand for higher bandwidth cables & connectors among different industries
There is a significant demand for high bandwidth in the telecom industry, cloud applications, TV-on-demand, video services, and online gaming. Wired transmission connection offers greater bandwidth, enhanced reliability & agility, and improved security in comparison to wireless communication. For instance, wired LAN offers 100Mpbs bandwidth using Ethernet technology, whereas the maximum bandwidth offered by wireless network is about 11Mbps. Moreover, wireless transmission is lower in underwater operations, due to the use of low frequency to keep the attenuation (power loss in transmitted signal) minimum and prevent slowdown of transmission rate. For instance, if attenuation has to be reduced from 5.4 DB to 0.4 DB, the frequency needs to be reduced from 1.8 MHz to 0.01 MHz. However, wired communication is totally exempted from any such limitations; hence, it is a faster medium as compared to wireless transmission. Thus, increase in demand for higher bandwidth and rise in need of faster transmission are expected to drive the growth of the cables and connector market in future.
Growing investments and innovations by companies of cables and connectors
Rising investments by manufacturers of cables and connectors for innovation in this segment will drive the market growth. In 2019, TE Connectivity launched its AMP+ HVA 1200 HV terminal and connector system. With the new AMP+ HVA1200 HV terminal and connector system (HVA 1200) automotive manufacturers benefitted from a high-performance interconnection system for their next-generation vehicles. In addition several companies are investing heavily for the advancements in this segment. In 2019, YAZAKI had built its first Serbian plant by investing $30 million focusing mainly on automotive cable manufacturing. The company is currently planning to expand its operations to South Eastern Europe in order to expand its global presence. Similarly, in 2019, Prysmian Group had planned to make an investment of $170 million in a new cable laying subsea vessel. In addition this company has secured several contracts in submarine cable laying business with an order intake of $1.2 billion. Hence these advancements are analysed to drive the market growth in the forecast period 2020-2025.
Cables and Connectors Market Challenges
Volatile Prices of Raw Material
Prices of cables & connector are set to continue to rise through 2020, as the price of plastics and steel in particular have risen in 2019. Copper price however was offset by the rise in mine output. This rise in connector material price has seen a corresponding growth in connector prices as manufacturers look to transfer the price change onto their customers. However with the U.S, China trade war and volatile geopolitical conditions, the price of connectors is highly capricious. However the copper and plastic price will remain bearish from 2021 with slight declines projected. Thus, this price volatility will affect the sale of connectors in the short term as bookings have already begun to show slight slowdown. This combined with a potential shift of manufacturing base for a few U.S companies back to the U.S, a price rise can be seen to affect market growth.
