Bishop & Associates Inc. is pleased to announce the release of its newest, information intensive, 12-chapter, 380‐page research report on the World RF Coax Connector Market. The report presents the latest sales results and forecasts, plus technical details on the most current coax connector product developments and industry standards. The report was delayed and revised so that effects of the COVID-19 pandemic could be studied and included. Sales results and forecasts are provided by total world, regions, and by key RF coax connector family and product type. Sales are provided for the years 2018, 2019, and 2020F with a forecast for 2025. For the first time in these RF Coax Connector Reports, market information on RF Cable Assemblies is presented to provide a more complete overview of the RF coax connector industry.

Projections include a discussion on how 5G, IoT, DIN, VITA, EICA/EIA, IEEE, MIL/SOSA new programs and standards, plus trends for miniaturization, COTS, LEO satellites, higher frequencies, higher RF power, broader application bandwidths, and international supply chain shifts will affect the overall market and specific connector types. With a forecasted CAGR of XX.X% from 2020 to 2025, growth of the world RF coax connector market is expected to exceed many other sectors.

The economic impact of RF coaxial connectors is multiplied when cable assemblies and accessories are considered. This report’s market numbers are based upon actual manufacturers’ data carefully augmented by related historical knowledge and expert inputs. In 2019, RF coax connectors were one of the world’s top six connector categories, falling just behind fiber optic connectors, offering a significant business potential for those knowing market(s) direction and product details.

Sales of electronic connectors continue to grow to match consumer and industry needs. The RF coax connector portion is becoming increasingly important as the number of wireless enabled devices, and the amount of data consumed grows, at an almost unfathomable rate. This report examines which RF coax interconnect products are expected to achieve growth, versus those that may be static, or in decline. In addition to worldwide and regional marketplace sales data, supportive chapters on connector technology and specific product families are included to provide an understanding of the connectors involved, how they are used, and what affects their sales.

A sampling of the RF coax connectors types included in this report is shown below.
