Published On : November 04, 2020 | Report ID: FBI104094 | Status : Ongoing



Automotive connectors are electromechanical components that are essential for connecting electrical terminals to form circuits. The electrical connector consists of a jack and a plug. The automotive connectors form connections in vehicles that can be related to the connections of blood vessels in the human body. In the automotive industry, the connectors are utilized in an automotive-oriented device to connect electrical equipment and wires. The growing demand for safety features in vehicles entails sophisticated automotive sensors, which are expected to create demand for automotive connectors. The share of electronic devices is increasing along with the rise in the automotive components. The demand for electronic products in vehicles is expected to surge the demand for automotive connectors. Majority of the electrical connections in vehicles are made of copper cables. Nowadays, the manufacturers are replacing copper cables with newer plastic optical fibre to enhance the data connection, improve the flexibility of the cables, as well as reduce the overall weight of the vehicle. These plastic optical fibre cables require automotive connectors. Thus, the increasing adoption of plastic optical fibre cables in the automotive industry is likely to fuel the growth of the automotive connectors in the global market.

Market Segmentation:

Globally, the automotive connectors market is segmented by product type, by application type, and by geographic coverage. The product type is further segmented into wire to wire connector, wire to board connectors, and board to board connectors. Wire-to-wire connectors links two terminal wires to form an electrical circuit. In the wire-to-board connector, connections are made through wire terminals and are integrated into a printed circuit board to form a circuit. Whereas, board-to-board connectors are used to connect printed circuit boards other electronic components. All the terminals of these connectors are linked to the printed circuit boards. Amongst these, the wire to wire connectors holds the major share in the global market as these connectors are broadly utilized to generate a connection between two wires for various purposes including body wiring, data connection, and power distribution. The application type is further segmented into powertrain, safety & security, power distribution & body wiring, and CCE among others. The safety and security application accounts for the major share in the global market. Safety and security features includes various ADAS features such as lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, anti-theft alarm system, keyless entry, and adaptive cruise control which assist the drivers, prevents form road fatalities as well as offer a higher level of security. These advanced functions use a large number of electronic gears and are integrated in the vehicle. Automotive connectors play a vital role in providing adequate power distribution for these components. In addition, these connectors can resist extreme temperature, dust and wear and tear.
