An interface connector is an electromechanical device that connects electrical wires to form a circuit. The connection could be removable, need a tool for assembly and removal, or act as a permanent electrical connection between two places. Dissimilar connectors can be joined with the help of an adaptor. Interface connectors are used in a wide range of applications such as, from power supply to data communication. Connectors must not only meet functional requirements, but also optical and haptic demands in a range of applications, as they serve as a user interface. An electrical connector is an electromechanical device that connects electrical wires to form a circuit. The male component, termed a plug, attaches to the female component, or socket, in most electrical connectors. The connection could be removable (as with portable equipment), need a tool for assembly and removal, or act as a permanent electrical connection between two places. Dissimilar connectors can be joined with the help of an adaptor. All these factors are assisting the growth of interface connectors market share globally.

The global interface connectors market is segmented on the basis of type, application and region. Based on type, the market is divided into digital, and analog. In terms of devices, the market is categorized into USB, Firewire, HDMI, MIDI and Others. In terms of devices, the market is categorized into military, commercial, consumer electronics, industrial, communications, medical, automotive, aerospace and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Key players operating in the global interface connectors industry include Goldenconn Electronic Technology Co., Ltd, Yamaichi Electronics Co., Ltd, KYOCERA Corporation, KEL Corporation, SMK Corporation, JST, nVent, HARTING, Hirose Electric Co., Ltd, UDE. These companies have adopted several strategies such as product launches, partnerships, collaborations, mergers & acquisitions, and joint ventures to strengthen their foothold in the global interface connectors market.

COVID-19 impact analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the growth of several sectors, including automobiles, oil & gas, and others. It has three major effects on the global economy—directly impacting production and demand, causing supply chain and market disruption, and having a financial impact on businesses and financial markets. The COVID-19 outbreak has posed a significant strategic threat to electronics and manufacturing companies in recent months. The electronics and semiconductor manufacturing industries have been harmed by disruptions in raw material supply, temporary shutdown of manufacturing units, inadequate finance, and weak consumer demand. All these factors are hampering the growth of interface connectors market size globally

Top impacting factors

The use of interface connectors in electronic sector is most prominent. Many other electronic devices, in addition to computers, use an interface connector to connect to other devices. For instance, a TV, may use an HDMI cable to connect to a Blu-ray player and component wires to connect to a cable box. Audio devices can feature analogue or digital audio connectors, as well as a MIDI interface for sending and receiving MIDI data. iPods include a proprietary "dock connection" interface that allows them to charge and transfer data over USB. Expensive manufacturing cost is expected to be a restraining factor in the interface connectors market growth.

Market trends

New product launches to flourish the market

ODS, a Taiwan professional waterproof connector solutions provider released USB 3.1 Type C Connectors in May 2020, which are the next-generation interfaces that enable 3A and 20V power supplies. The tiny and modest form is excellent for applications with limited space. It also has an additional mode for audio and video signal output. In June 2021, a prototype image of the Apple Watch Series 3 had posted online, showing the gadget with a distinctive potential Smart Connector. Apple Watches have a concealed connection port that allows for quick internal diagnostics by Apple and other internal tests. It revealed the presence of two additional ports that were not covered and looked similar to the Apple iPad's Smart Connector but were considerably smaller.

Surge in usage in automotive industry and space industry

In the automotive sector, AI-based autonomous vehicles are the frontrunners. Self-driving cars, which use artificial intelligence, are already enabling smart travel alternatives. These automobiles are self-driving and rely on sensors, software, as well as connectors. The goal of autonomous vehicles is to eliminate the need for human drivers and make everyday transportation more convenient. The number of people who are willing to use or trust autonomous vehicles is steadily increasing. Big firms like Tesla, Google, and Uber are pushing the boundaries of autonomous vehicles to improve their reliability. In space travel applications, three types of connectors are used: D-subminiature, micro-miniature, and round. When an engineer chooses a connection for use in space, he or she analyses the type of application, size constraints, and the physically demanding needs. D-sub and Micro-D connections are commonly used on PCBs, panel mounts, and basic cables, whereas circular connectors are employed on heavy-duty cable and panel mount applications.
