An electro-mechanical device that is used to attach electrical terminations thereby creating an electrical circuit. An electrical connector consist of a male-ended plug and female-ended jack. A Wire to Board Connector refers to those connectors that connect a bunch of wires or a wire with a printed circuit board (PCB).
Wire to board connector is used widely in a variety of applications. From factory automation to household appliances such as refrigerators, washers and dryers, ovens to anywhere where power or signals are routed, wire to board connectors finds its usage.
The market of wire to board connector market is driven by the rapid growth of communications, consumer electronics and computers market. Growing application of communication technology and computer all over the world has been contributing to the growth of the market. Increasing demand of transmission bandwidth and high-speed connectivity are also responsible for the growth of the market of wire to board connector market.
However, the increasing usage of wireless networking systems across the globe, is restraining the market of wire to board connector. Wireless networking systems are gaining popularity owing to it’s convenience of usage and portability.
The market is segmented by pitch size, application, style and geography. By pitch size, the market is divided into 1.0 mm, 2.0 mm, 3.0 mm, 5.0 mm and others. The wire to board connector segment with 5 mm. The growth of this segment of the market is owing to increasing usage of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in various residential appliances such as refrigerators, heaters and air conditioners, cooktops across the globe. 10.16 mm pitch size is the second most growing segment in this category. Increasing usage of these connectors in office automation, medical, robotics and communication are also propelling the growth of this segment.
On the basis of application, the wire to board connector market is divided into computer and peripherals into computer and peripherals, automotive, medical, data/telecom and others. The automotive category is expected to propel this market. These connectors are increasingly being used in intelligent transport system, safety systems, and automotive electronics.
