Filtered connectors are used to strip electric signals of unwarranted or unwanted HRF or RF noise. The unwanted capacity can lead to malfunction or damage in electrical equipment. Hence, it is ideal in electronics like broadband modems, tv connectors, electric cars, and a wide variety of other electronics. The growing demands in electronics sector for wearable technology, electronic vehicles, among others are expected to drive significant growth for the filtered connectors market in the near future. The looming introduction of 5G technology globally is expected to create significant opportunities for players in the filtered connectors market.

5G technology is expected to drive virtual reality, 3D printing, more connectivity for electric vehicles, trends Internet of Vehicles among many other developments. The manufacturing of electric vehicles will also likely to be a major boost for players in the filtered connectors market. Recently, due to economic slowdown and high interest rates in the US, the demand for automobiles has decreased considerably. Additionally, trends like rent-a-vehicle are expected to further empty the pockets of automobile manufacturers in the near future. Hence, the auto industry is quickly moving towards the manufacturing of next-gen electric vehicles which are expected to drive significant growth for players in the filtered connectors market.

On one hand, electric vehicles (apart from the engine component) are easier to manufacture. Additionally, these vehicles are generating a keen interest among consumers as oil prices continue to rise and new emission standards have made consumers stall purchases. Moreover, electric components will make way for easier monitoring, automated driving, and robust connectivity. The filtered connectors are essential in electric vehicles for regular operations. The jump in electric vehicle manufacturing by all major global automobile manufacturers is a promising sign for players in the filtered connectors market. Additionally, technologies like 5G will also open new opportunities in the filtered connectors market.

Filtered Connectors Market - Introduction

Electromagnetic noise suppression or filtering in connectors can be accomplished by adding diodes and condensers to separate high-voltage or high-frequency noise interference from the required reduced frequency signals. These connectors are called filtered connectors and have been used for over three centuries in the sector to provide cost-effective and space-efficient alternatives to EMI issues. They can be used in various applications such as consumer electronics, avionics systems, satellites, missiles, communications and medical instruments.

A low-pass filtered connector is incorporated into the connector body with ferrite inductors and condensers. Two kinds of condensers are planar arrays and tubular condensers used in filtered connectors. Both of these condensers function as high frequency (> 1 GHz) effective filters and are reliable when incorporated into a connector.

Filtered Connectors Market - Dynamics

Growing Use of Personal Electronic Devices and Rapid industrialization

The extended use of personal electronic devices is one of the main drivers of market development. The need for individuals to remain connected has resulted to the growth of the Things Internet that allows devices to communicate wirelessly to each other. Such wireless connections have led to enhanced problems of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) that could lead to deadly crashes when dealing with medical devices or aircraft navigation systems. Using filtered connectors, unwanted electromagnetic interference is filtered out.

Military applications also require high-end filtered connectors to filter the EMI radiated by radar signals sent out by airports and aircraft. It is also expected that emerging developments such as the use of composite metals to produce filtered connectors will help market growth in the years to come. Plastic is the only material capable of matching metals such as aluminum, titanium and steel performance. To shape composites that achieve high-performance levels, plastic polymers can be mixed with glass or other materials. Some of the benefits of making filtered connectors using composites are corrosion resistance, weight reduction, and vibration dampening.

Geographically, Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at highest growth rate during the forecast period. The increasing demand from developing economies such as India and Malaysia is expected to have a positive influence on the regional market growth.
