2017 – A Good Year for all Regions

2017 – A Good Year for all Regions

2017 has turned out to be a good year for the connector industry. Overall, sales are growing in the high single-digit range, with three of the six regions experiencing low double-digit growth.

China has the strongest growth, expanding 13.4%, to a sales high of $18.7 billion. China is followed by Japan and ROW, who will both grow a solid 10.0%. Much of the reason for Japan’s solid growth was that sales declined in 2016, making comparisons in 2017 easier.

Japan and ROW are followed by Europe with growth of 8.2%, North America with growth of 6.0%, and Asia Pacific with growth of 4.4%. Similar to the situation in the ROW region, in reality, Asia Pacific’s growth is very weak considering the fact comparisons were fairly easy due to a decline in sales in 2016.

The connector industry’s sales by region are noted in the following table.

2018 Outlook

We are forecasting 2018 sales to grow X.X to $6X,XXX.X million.

/media/images/product/f-2017-2/2018-forecast-by-region.jpg

Here are some points to consider in support of the 2018 forecast:

  • This projected mid-single-digit growth is in line with GDP growth projections by the IMF for the various regions of the world.
  • For most of the major economies of the world, consumer confidence and business confidence are positive and generally trending upward.
  • Continuation of low energy prices. Energy prices, in particular oil prices, stabilized in 2017 at a relatively modest level. Although OPEC succeeded in reducing oil inventories by cutting back on production, US output keeps rising, threatening to replace much of OPEC’s cut back. Oil prices are anticipated to remain steady to slightly down, at least through the first half of 2018.
  • Although still at historical lows, interest rates are increasing. In fact, it is estimated that there will be more interest rate hikes in 2018 in the US, and an increase in the UK to offset higher inflation. The EU will also continue to scale back their quantitative easing. This will likely have a mixed effect on the economy, with many expressing concern that it could derail the slow, but steady growth currently underway in western economies.
  • Economic growth may be modest in 2018, but the growth of electronics (with connector content) will continue to outpace the general economies.
