The automotive connector market was valued at USD 20.2 billion in 2020 and is estimated to register a substantial CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to increasing demand for convenience, connectivity, and safety features in commercial vehicles as well as passenger cars. Advancements in technology have resulted in many features that provide better safety and enhance driving experience.

Automotive Connector Market-Key Takeaways

An electrical connector refers to a device that connects electrical terminations to form a circuit. Electrical connectors comprise of jacks (female-ended) and plugs (male-ended). Automotive connectors form connection in a vehicle similar to connection of blood vessels in a human body.

Automotive connectors comprises of two categories: un-sealed and sealed. Majority of un-sealed connectors are used inside vehicles and sealed connectors are used in engine compartments. Wire to wire connection links two terminal wires to form a circuit. In wire to board connectors, the electrical connections through wire terminals are inserted into the printed circuit boards (PCB) and a circuit is made. A board-to-board connector is used to connect other electric components with PCBs and each terminal of a board-to-board connector is connected to a PCB.

The Covid-19 pandemic had an unpleasant impact on the automotive connector market. The automotive production has been on halt and the demand and supply ware affected. The market suffered significant loss; however, the government’s steps and strategies have helped to neutralised the situation. This pandemic has encouraged the key players to implement advance technologies to overcome these challenges and expand the market growth.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • The rise in safety-related initiatives from government agencies along with safety concerns among consumers has uplifted the demand for a dependable connector in various vehicle systems. For instance, safety systems such as airbags, seatbelts, and brakes used in vehicles require a connection system comprising a retainer and safety restraint system connector. This has a direct influence in driving the growth of the market.
  • Rising vehicle electrification among different vehicle segments is propelling the demand for connectors.
  • The increasing usage of electronics in other applications, such as advanced and convenient systems, like infotainment and automatic transmissions, which is driving the need for connectors in these systems, thereby, fuelling the market growth of automotive connector.
  • Major applications of automotive connector in the powertrain systems along with safety and infotainment systems are projected to propel the market expansion during the forecast period.
  • Durability and reliability concerns are some functional challenges that are estimated to impede the growth of the market.
  • R&D investment and technological advancement in automotive connector market are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market players.
