2020 – A Year of “Firsts”

Economic Impact of COVID-19 on Connectors

How long will the pandemic last? How fast will world economies recover once the pandemic is over? What will be the economic impact on the connector industry?

These are big, important questions that we asked ourselves in March, and as of today, still have no clear answer to. However, one can postulate by analyzing past performance in downturns and develop assumptions on what might happen next, based on this analysis.

In the two most recent downturns, connector industry sales declined for up to five consecutive quarters. The sales declines were high double-digits with the worst quarter down 35.6% (first quarter of 2009).

2001-2002: Dotcom Bubble and September 11th Attacks

Connector industry sales declined 18.8% in 2001 and 6.9% in 2002. At the time, this was the worst downturn in the connector industry since Bishop started tracking industry performance in 1980.

The following table shows the industry’s performance by quarter during the 2001-2002 dotcom bubble crisis and September 11th attacks.

/media/images/product/f-2020-2/2001-03-losses.jpg

The downturn lasted five quarters, the longest contraction in connector industry history. Following the downturn, connector industry demand came back strong, growing 11.4% in 2003.

2008-2009: Financial/Housing Crisis and H1N1

Undoubtably, the H1N1 pandemic had some measurable effect on the global economy. However, it paled in comparison to the financial crisis’s devastating impact.

The following table shows industry sales performance by quarter for the period 2008 through 2010.

/media/images/product/f-2020-2/2008-10-losses.jpg

This downturn lasted only four quarters but produced the two worst quarters in connector industry history (1Q09 = -35.6%; 2Q09= -32.1%).

Some interesting observations:

  • 2001 sales declined 18.8% followed by a 2002 decline of 6.8%. The downturn lasted five quarters (three quarters in 2001 and two quarters in 2002). The worst sales decline was 30.9% in 4Q01.
  • Sales rebounded 11.4% in 2003 and 18.0% in 2004. The industry achieved growth in the six consecutive years following the dotcom downturn.
  • During the 2009 financial crisis, industry sales declined 21.8%. This downturn lasted only four quarters, but it resulted in the industry’s historical worst year and worst quarter (2009: -28.2%, 1Q09: -35.6%).

Although we initially forecasted that 2020 (COVID-19 crisis) would result in the industry’s worst decline in sales ever, we have found the industry is more resilient than we had anticipated, declining just a fraction of our original predictions.

2020 Outlook

Due to economic effects spurred by the pandemic, Bishop is forecasting 2020 sales to decline by X.X% to $XX.XXX million. We anticipate the greatest percentage decline will occur in the ROW region, where sales will decline XX.X%, followed by Japan where sales will decline XX.9%. In US dollars, the greatest decline will occur in Europe, where connector sales are forecasted to decline by XX.2% or $X,XXX.4 million, followed by North America where connector sales are forecasted to decline by XX.X% or $X.XXX.5.

/media/images/product/f-2020-2/2020-forecast.jpg

Forecast Assumptions

The following are the assumptions we are using to develop the connector industry forecast.

  • New cases of COVID-19 will continue to decline, with most economies avoiding additional shutdowns or shelter in place directives.
  • The continued slow reopening of “other” industries (shopping malls, restaurants, beauty salons, barbershops, and other nonessential businesses). The timing for opening and the rules and regulations that will be implemented to reopen will vary drastically by country, state, county, and city.
  • World economies will recover slowly throughout the fourth quarter of 2020. We expect a U-shaped and not a V-shaped recovery, meaning that in many regions previous levels of demand will not be reached until well into 2022.
  • There will be some pent-up demand for lower priced consumer goods (mobile phones, televisions, appliances, laptops, etc.) in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Consumers will be very conservative with big ticket item purchases such as cars, boats, recreational vehicles, pickup trucks, vacations, etc. We expect demand for these products not to ramp up until 2021.
