2015 - A Tough Year for Foreign Currency

Connector sales grew +8.2% in 2014 to $55,402 million. China had a stellar year with sales up +14.5%, the only region to grow in double-digits. This made the China region more than 25% larger than Europe, the second largest region in 2014. North America also had a very good year with sales up +7.8% compared to the prior year. Europe and Japan's growth decreased over the year and ROW never really got going. Unfortunately, connector sales in 2015 are not faring as well. With only Asia-Pacific anticipated to finish 2015 with year-over-year growth, the connector industry is forecast to decline -5.6%. In percentage growth, the largest decrease will be seen in ROW, where connector sales are anticipated to decline -19.5%. In pure US dollars, the greatest loss in connector sales will in the European region, where sales will contract over $1.5 billion dollars.

This contraction in European sales will place Europe behind North America in sales for the first time since 2007, when Europe overtook North America in total connector sales. It will also strengthen China's first place position, giving them over 28% of all connector sales in 2015.

The connector industry's sales by region are noted in the following table.

2016 Outlook

2016 Connector Forecast by Geographic Region With Percent Change

XX Commercial in Confidence.

Here are some points to consider in support of the 2016 forecast:

  • This projected low-single-digit growth is in line with GDP growth projections by the IMF for the various regions of the world.
  • For most of the major economies of the world, consumer confidence and business confidence are positive, but they are fragile.
  • Low energy prices are putting more money in consumer's pockets which they are spending.
  • Interest rates are still at historical lows.
  • The US Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank and the People's Bank of China are all keeping a close eye on interest rates, inflation/deflation and money supplies to keep their economies in control and on an even keel. The financial markets, however, are likely to remain unstable as quantitative easing in Europe is drawn down and the United States Federal Reserve tries to increase interest rates.
  • Economic growth may be modest in 2016, but the growth of electronics (with connector content) will continue to outpace the general economies.
