2019 - A Shift in Direction!

After two outstanding years, 2017 and 2018, where connector sales grew a strong 11.0% each year, the connector industry hit headwinds in 2019, declining -3.8%. Nowhere near the strength of headwinds witnessed in 2009, where sales declined an astonishing 21.8% or even 2015 when sales declined 6.1%, the decline in 2019, reduced overall connector sales by over $2.5 billion.

All regions except North America showed negative growth in 2019. China, which has been the golden child of the electronic connector industry experienced the greatest decline, decreasing X.0%. This is the largest decline in Chinese connector sales since 2009, when sales declined 12.3%. Europe, who has seen two very strong years, with sales increasing 11.6% in 2017 and 14.7% in 2018, saw the next greatest decrease, with sales declining X.X%. The ROW region, who has experienced sales growth in eight of the last ten years, followed Europe with a decline of X.8%.

With sales declining X.1%, Japan follows ROW. Although over the last ten years (2009 through 2019) Japan has experienced a couple of years of outstanding growth, including 2010 when sales grew an astonishing 34.1% and 2017 where sales exceeded the overall industry growth, increasing 11.7%, 2019's decline brings Japan to sales levels just slightly better than those seen in 2009, when sales fell to $4,565 million.

The Asia Pacific region, which over the last ten years has witnessed steady, but lack luster growth, follows Japan, with sales declining X.8%.

 We are forecasting 2020 sales to grow +3.5% to $XX,386.4 million. We anticipate the greatest growth will occur in China, where sales will grow X.3% or approximately $832 million. The least growth will be in Japan, where sales will grow X.8%.

It is important to note that this forecast is based on the following assumptions:

  • No US or European recession.
  • Minimal impact on the electronic connector industry by the establishment of tariffs, especially those on raw materials such as aluminum and steel.
  • Currency fluctuations will be minimal.
  • Energy prices will remain relatively stable with no unusual high spikes.
  • Stable interest rates with few short-term increases, particularly in North America and Europe.
  • No major geo-political blow up in the Ukraine, Middle East, South China Sea or Korean Peninsula.
