With the rapid growth of consumer electronics, automotive electronics, communications terminal markets and the global connector production capacity moving to Asia and China, Asia has become the most promising place in the connector market, and China will become the fastest growing connector in the world. And the market with the largest capacity. It is estimated that the growth rate of China's connector market will continue to exceed the global average in the future. In the next five years, the average annual growth rate of China's connector market will reach 15%. By 2010, China's connector market capacity will reach 257. 100 million yuan.
The main supporting fields of electrical connectors include transportation, communication, network, IT, medical, home appliances, etc. The rapid development of product technology in the supporting fields and the rapid growth of the market have strongly led the development of connector technology. So far, the connector has developed into a series of products and specialized products with complete product categories, rich variety specifications, diverse structural types, professional direction subdivision, obvious industry characteristics, and standard system specifications.
In general, the development of connector technology has the following characteristics: high-speed and digitalization of signal transmission, integration of various types of signal transmission, miniaturization and miniaturization of product volume, low cost of products, and termination method of contact parts Sticking, module combination, convenience of plugging and unplugging, etc. The above technology represents the development direction of the connector technology, but it should be noted that the above technology is not required for all connectors, and the connectors of different supporting fields and different use environments have completely different requirements for the above technologies. .
