Automotive & Transportation Connector Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Automotive & Transportation Connector Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Electronic Components in Automobiles

Safety and security systems such as adaptive cruise control, ant-theft alarm system, lane departure warning, keyless entry, braking systems, and autonomous driving systems help in avoiding fatal accidents as well as provide greater security. Such advanced features are integrated within vehicle using considerable number of electronic components. Connectors play an essential role in delivering proper power distribution to these components. Manufacturers are investing into developing superior connector technology at low price to withstand harsh operation conditions such as high/low temperature, wear and tear, and dirt.  Increasing vehicle electrification among different vehicle segments has boosted the demand for connectors. Further growing awareness regarding eco-friendly mobility has plunged sales of electric vehicles, thereby driving demand for automotive connectors. It is anticipated that over 150 hybrid electric vehicle models are going to be launched during the forecasted period, which creates an immense opportunity for manufacturers of connectors.

Regulations also play an important role in shaping the market. The proposed ban on internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in different countries led to increasing adoption of electric vehicle. For example Norway has set 2025 as the target year for ban on ICE vehicles. China has announced ban by 2030. This amplifies the scope of vehicle electrification, thereby increasing the demand for automotive and transportation connectors market during the forecasted period.
