- How has the consumer appliance market changed over the last five years? How is this market anticipated to change in the next five years, the next 10-years? What factors are driving these changes? What role do interconnect products play in the future of the consumer appliance market?
- What is driving the rise and fall of the personal computer and tablets market, the consumer mobile phone and watch markets? Over the next ten years, which of these markets have the potential for the greatest growth in units? How will this growth affect the number of connectors currently being consumed in the manufacturing of these products?
- What unique product enhancements will drive the growth of the television market? Which I/O's will prevail, and which ones will be replaced or incorporated into other connector products? How will these changes affect the number of connectors used in this market?
Bishop & Associates latest research report, ‘World Consumer Market for Connectors - 2019’ examines the technology, products, and outside influences that are shaping the consumer market. Individual chapters are devoted to the connected home appliance market, consumer mobile phone and watch markets, as well as the HD/UHDTV from 1080P to 8K, and the personal computer and tablet markets.
The report covers major OEM markets and high-volume connector products for consumer-purchased systems from 2018 to 2028.
The report examines the huge shifts in technology that have occurred with digital convergence and how formerly distinct market segments from across the spectrum of electronic products are now using or are beginning to use the same or similar technologies related to Wi-Fi, 5G, and IoT. This report covers the connector products that are helping to make these changes possible.
The report reviews the connected home appliance market, consumer mobile phone and watch markets, as well as the HD/UHDTV from 1080P to 8K, and the personal computer and tablet markets. It provides unit forecasts and outlook for these markets and discusses connector volumes and types by market.
For many in the connector and its associated industries, these markets have been abandoned as being too price-conscious, and most equipment is currently assembled in Asia. Due to international trade disputes and political turmoil in the South China Sea area looming, many OEM manufacturers are reevaluating their manufacturing footprints.
