The global automotive connectors market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Automotive connectors are electrochemical elements that are used for attaching multiple electrical circuits. They join electric terminals to form a complete circuit and ensure effective communication and navigation between the electronics and safety devices of the automobile. They consist of jacks or sockets (female-ended) and plugs (male-ended) that are placed under the hood of the vehicle. Advanced safety and security features such as anti-theft alarms, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and auto emergency braking systems are integrated with electrical components using these connectors. Looking forward, the global automotive connectors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
The increasing incorporation of advanced security features in the automobiles and the rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs) are the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the growing sophistication of automotive sensors and infotainment systems has augmented the demand for automotive wiring harnesses and connectors across the globe. Automobile manufacturers are replacing copper cables with plastic optical fiber (POF) to improve data transmission and design flexibility, along with reducing the overall vehicle weight. The effective functioning of POF requires automotive connectors. Additionally, advanced automotive systems utilize memory and data storage connectors for supporting Wi-Fi networks in automated vehicles. This, coupled with the increasing adoption of hybrid vehicles, is further contributing to the market growth. Moreover, various product innovations such as adaptive front lighting, cruise control, park assistance and departure warning systems, along with the incorporation of machine learning in self-driving vehicles are expected to drive the market in the coming years.
