2019 – Preparing for Headwinds!

After two outstanding years, 2017 and 2018, where connector sales grew a strong 11.0% each year, the connector industry is experiencing headwinds. Not anticipated to be as strong as headwinds experienced in 2009 where sales declined an astonishing 21.8% or even 2015 when sales declined 6.1%, but strong enough to have the overall connector market decline 1.5%.

All regions, except North America, are anticipated to show a contraction in 2019. China, which has been the golden child of the electronic connector industry, is anticipated to have the greatest decline. This is the largest decline in Chinese connector sales since 2009, when sales declined 12.3%. Europe, who has seen two very strong years, with sales increasing 11.6% in 2017 and 14.7% in 2018, is anticipated to see the next greatest decrease. Japan, who has experienced a decline in four of the last ten years, will follow Europe. Although over the last ten years Japan has experienced a couple of years of outstanding growth, including 2010 when sales grew an astonishing 34.1% and 2017 where sales exceeded the overall industry growth of 11%, increasing 11.7%, it will still not reach the sales levels seen in 2011 or 2012.

The Asia Pacific region, which over the last ten years has witnessed steady, but lack luster growth, will follow Japan, with sales anticipated to decline in the low single-digits. The ROW region, with double digit growth in both 2017 and 2018, will see the smallest decline.

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

2019 Outlook

We are forecasting 2019 sales to decline -1.5% to $65,687.3 million.

/media/images/product/f-2019-1/percent-performance-by-region.jpg

It is important to note that this forecast is based on the following assumptions:

  • No US or European recession.
  • Minimal impact on the electronic connector industry by the establishment of tariffs, especially those on raw materials such as aluminum and steel.
  • Currency fluctuations will be minimal.
  • Energy prices will remain relatively stable with no unusual high spikes.
  • Stable interest rates with few short-term increases, particularly in North America and Europe.
  • No major geo-political blow up in the Ukraine, Middle East, South China Sea or Korean Peninsula.
