2017 - A Good Year for all Regions

What a great year for the connector industry! 2017 turned out to be the best year for the connector industry since 2010, when connector industry sales grew an astonishing 28.2% after declining a whopping 21.8% in 2009. Not since 2006, over a decade ago, have we had a year where connector sales grew in the double-digits, and growth was not driven by a drastic decline the previous year.

All regions showed growth in 2017, with four of the regions, Europe, Japan, China, and ROW, exhibiting double-digit growth. The greatest growth was seen in China, where connector sales grew 15.9%. China is now over $6 billion dollars larger than any other region and approaching the $20 billion-dollar mark. China was followed by the ROW region, where connector sales grew 12.9%. This is the strongest growth the ROW region has seen since 2011. Unfortunately, since connector sales in the ROW region have been extremely sluggish over the last five years, even with the strong double-digit growth of 2017, total connector sales still fall behind total ROW connector sales achieved in 2011.

The ROW region was followed by the Japanese region, where connector sales grew 11.7% in 2017. Like the world connector number, this was the greatest growth seen in the Japanese region since 2010, when connector sales grew 34.1%, following a year where Japanese connector sales declined 24.1%. Because of lack luster performance over the last seven years, two years with double-digit decline in sales, the Japanese region still is almost 25% smaller than it was in 2012!

Japan was followed by Europe with sales growth of 11.6% and North America with sales growth of 6.8%. The poorest performing region was Asia-Pacific, where sales grew only 5.3%. Although this was the lowest growth rate in 2017, it was better growth than was exhibited by this region in the last two years, when sales grew a mere 0.1% in 2015 and declined 3.4% in 2016.

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

2018 Outlook

We are forecasting 2018 sales to grow X.X to $6X,XXX.X million.

Here are some points to consider in support of the 2018 forecast:

  • This projected mid-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 and generally trending upward.
  • Continuation of low energy prices. Energy prices, in particular oil prices, stabilized in 2017 at a relatively modest level. Although OPEC succeeded in reducing oil inventories by cutting back on production, US output keeps rising, threatening to replace much of OPEC's cut back. Oil prices are anticipated to remain steady to slightly down, at least through the first half of 2018.
  • Although still at historical lows, interest rates are increasing. In fact, it is estimated that there will be more interest rate hikes in 2018 in the US, and an increase in the UK to offset higher inflation. The EU will also continue to scale back their quantitative easing. This will likely have a mixed effect on the economy, with many expressing concern that it could derail the slow, but steady growth currently underway in western economies.
  • Economic growth may be modest in 2018, but the growth of electronics (with connector content) will continue to outpace the general economies.
