Industrial Connectors Distribution Sales to End-Use Markets Is Strong in North America & Europe but Weaker in Asia Pacific, Finds Bishop & Associates

07 Sep 2012 • by Natalie Aster

The industrial market for connectors typically represents about 11 to 12 percent of the total global connector market, which makes it the fourth largest end-use equipment connector market behind automotive, computer and peripherals, and telecom/data communication. The share of the industrial market for connectors has remained remarkably stable over the years.

Distribution sales to the industrial end-use market are relatively strong in North America and Europe but much weaker in Asia Pacific, China and Japan. On average, the overall POP (Point of Purchase) sales to the distribution channels were about 25 percent of total sales in 2011.

The industrial end-use equipment market is so diverse that it offers plenty of opportunities for niche players and specialized connector manufacturers. Still, the top-10 connector manufacturers in this market have a combined share of more than 60 percent (2010 sales data).

According to the report “World Industrial Market for Connectors” by Bishop & Associates, the diversity of the Industrial Market for Connectors makes it stand out from most other connector end-use equipment markets and the report illustrates this unique characteristic by dedicating separate chapters on the five market segments ranging from Industrial Controls to Heavy Equipment.
