For instance, in medical industry lightweight, compact and high density connectors are used to connect with sensors, handle high signal speeds, and encounter frequent mating cycles and sterilization. Furthermore, in medical industry, precision connectors are used for medical devices and instruments, which include inhalation dental care treatment units, mobile X-ray devices, MRI machines, clinic communication systems, intraoral camera systems, devices for respiratory therapy, fetal heart rate monitors, handheld pulse oximeters, cardiac assist devices, and disposable equipment. There are various market players, which offers precision connectors for medical sector such as Fischer Connectors SA, ODU-USA, Inc., Mouser Electronics, Inc., Rosenberger Hochfrequenztechnik GmbH & Co. KG , and others.
Therefore, growing demand for high performance connectors in various sectors is one of the primary factors, which is expected to drive growth of the U.S., Japan, and Germany precision connector market
Government Initiatives to Improve Connectivity
Government initiatives to improve connectivity and wireless infrastructure of the country is expected to propel growth of the U.S., Japan & Germany precision connector market
For instance, in 2017, in order to support network expansion and the development of 5G applications, the federal government of Germany developed a framework for action with the 5G Strategy for Germany. In March 2018, the German Federal Government signed coalition agreement with the goal of nationwide expansion of gigabit networks by 2025. Furthermore, in 2019, the German government approved a mobile communications strategy. The aim of the strategy is to ensure nationwide supply of mobile voice and data services.
High Cost of Precision Connectors
High cost of precision connectors is expected to restrain the growth of U.S., Japan & Germany precision connector market. The connectors which provide high frequency have high cost. For instance, 1.85 mm i.e. V-connector can cost high.
Furthermore, use of high-quality raw materials such as stainless-steel, copper beryllium (CuBe), and sophisticated gold surface layer thickness on the center of connectors by manufacturers increases the cost of precision connectors as well
Mergers & Acquisitions and Product Launch Intended To Strengthen Market Position
The companies operating in the market are engaged in strategic mergers & acquisitions and product launch, in order to strengthen their market position and to enhance their offerings
For instance, in October 2019, Samtec acquired Precision Connector, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of microwave coaxial cables and precision RF having 25 years of experience in the same. As a part of this acquisition Samtec added support to their precision interconnects portfolio such as 1.0 mm, 3.50 mm, SMPM, 2.92 mm, 1.85 mm, 2.40 mm, and 2.92 mm.
In March 2021, Rosenberger launched high-speed or new generation connectors, which are around 45% smaller than standard SMP (Sub miniature push-on) connectors and can be used for applications up to 100 GHz. Moreover, in April 2021, NorComp launched MICRO-D Series machined, micro miniature connectors, which offers high reliability performance in spite of harsh environment applications such as measurement and test applications, industrial robotics, and other electronics applications.
