2017 – Connector Industry on an Upward Roll

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.

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

2017 Outlook

We are forecasting 2017 sales to grow X.X to $5X,XXX.X million.

Here are some points to consider in support of the 2017 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, have stabilized in 2016 at a relatively modest level. This is anticipated to continue into 2017. This will put an additional strain on countries who rely heavily on fuel exports and discourage mining and exploration equipment investments.
  • Although still at historical lows, interest rates are increasing. In fact, it is estimated that there will be three interest rate hikes in 2017 in the US, and an increase in the UK to offset higher inflation. This will likely have a mixed affect 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 2017, but the growth of electronics (with connector content) will continue to outpace the general economies.
