IoT’s Impact on the Telecom Connector Industry

By 2020 there will be more than 50 billion devices connected to the Internet in some way, shape, or form. While most of these “things” will be connected wirelessly, they will still give rise to equipment that communicates and saves all the data that is being collected.

  • How will the increase in equipment needed to support the Internet of Things (IoT) impact the telecom connector industry? How will IoT applications in the computer and consumer industry affect the growth of the telecom industry?
  • Within the consumer, computer, and telecom sectors, what types of equipment will be impacted the most? Among connector types, which connectors will see the greatest growth and which connector types may see a decline in demand?
  • Which regions will most likely be affected by these changes, and will there be a switch in market dynamics as we see them today?
  • What role will technologies like near-field communications, RFID, Wi-Fi (including WiGig), and other wireless technologies like Visual Light Communication and TransferJet play in the growth of the IoT?
  • What data and telecom communication technologies have broadened and enhanced the host of mobile devices available today? What technologies lie on the horizon?

This report focuses on the telecom/datacom sector, and how the IoT intertwines applications within the consumer and computer sectors through the expansion and growth of the telecom industry. IoT’s Impact on the Telecom Connector Industry examines the equipment and connector types within these sectors most likely to be influenced by the IoT. The report offers a quantitative analysis by region, sector, equipment type, and predominant connector type, allowing those most affected by the growth of the IoT to accurately position themselves.
