Jump wire cable is a group of electric wires in a cable with a pin or connector at each end. It is also known as jumper wire, jumper, jumper cable, DuPont cable, or DuPont wire. It is generally used to interconnect internally or with other components of a prototype, breadboard, or test circuit without soldering. Jump wires are fitted in slots provided in the header connector of a circuit board or breadboard or in a part of test equipment by inserting its end connectors into it.
The rising demand for renewable power generation is a key factor fueling the cables & wires industry. This may lead to increase in the demand for jump wire cables across the globe. The focus of numerous countries across the world on commercialization of renewable power generation would generate substantial demand for jump wires in the near future. This is mostly due to shortage of transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure at the place where renewable energy resources are established. Moreover, development of the existing renewable power generation plants is likely to raise the demand for jump wire cables in developing countries.
The jump wire cables market can be segmented based on connector type, application, and region. Based on connector type, the market can be divided into solid tips, banana connectors, crocodile clips, registered jacks, RCA connectors, and RF connectors. In terms of application, the market can be segregated into automotive, locomotive, commercial, consumer electronics, breadboard, and others. Jump wire cables are used to control multiple-unit train and the transmission of lower-voltage electricity. Jump wire cables in the consumer electronics industry are short-length conductors employed to open, close, or bypass the electronic circuit part. Jump wires are typically used to configure or set up printed circuit boards (PCBs) such as motherboards of computers.
Based on region, the market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is the leading consumer of jump wire cable materials, followed by North America and Europe. This is attributable to the increasing demand for commercial vehicles and personal vehicles led by high GDP growth and increase in purchasing power in countries in Asia Pacific such as China, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Though the maximum number of renowned automotive manufacturers are based in Europe, the demand for vehicles is typically generated from other geographies, predominantly Asia Pacific. Jump wire cables are widely used in the automobile industry. Hence, the demand for jump wire cables is high in the Asia Pacific region.
Increase in the production of motor vehicles and rise in the need to upgrade the power transmission and distribution network in North America would drive the jump wire cables market in the region during the forecast period. However, emergence of wireless technology in the electronics industry can hamper the demand for jump wire cables, which are used to connect devices. The jump wire cables market in India is highly fragmented due to presence of numerous small- and medium-sized enterprises. However, extensive research and development activities and innovative technologies introduced by market players can be one of the opportunity, in order to collect more information to understand the demand for jump wire cables applications in varied end-user industries.
Key players operating in the global jump wire cables market include Molex, Wurth Electronics, TE Connectivity, Adafruit Industries, Mikroelektronika, Yamaichi Electronics, and Newhaven Display.
