Connector Industry Roadmap

One of the most difficult jobs for manufacturing personnel is to forecast future demand, trends, and changes or enhancements in technology. Bishop & Associates’ Connector Industry Roadmap will take the guesswork out of this process.

This six-chapter, in-depth analysis and historical perspective of the connector and electronic components industry provides:

A multidimensional look into industry trends, technology strategies, and industrial competitiveness in the electronic component and connector industry
Analysis of the major elements of the electronics industry that parallel, intersect, and influence the design, development, and use of connectors
Details of more than 18 major product roadmaps, with technical parameters, forecasts, encroachment, and possible roadblocks over the next decade.


The latest Bishop & Associates report, “The Connector Roadmap,” examines the electronics industry and connectors over the past decade, and forecasts the decade to come. This six chapter report provides electronics industry insiders with valuable insights and information.

The detailed study includes numerous charts and tables, and various photos and illustrations, giving readers a multidimensional look into industry trends, technology strategies, and industrial competitiveness in the electronic component and connector industry. The report also analyzes major elements of the electronics industry that parallel, intersect, and influence the design, development and use of connectors.

As the global economy has come to define the industry, the report includes a look into the competitive position and strategies affecting various regions, including shifting priorities for North America, Europe, Japan, China, and Asia-Pacific. A discussion of this global dynamic includes the “trickling” of “in-sourcing”, as some manufacturing returns to North America and the easing of taxes and regulations in the European Union.

The study looks at the connector industry’s markets and technology trends, and details over 18 major product roadmaps, with technical parameters, forecasts, encroachment, and possible roadblocks over the next decade. U.S. Census Bureau data is compiled on U.S. shipments in 30 multi-billion dollar equipment markets, including automotive, computer and electronic products, military-aerospace, and semiconductors, charted from 1995-2013, with trend line analysis to 2023.

Also included is a discussion of semiconductor technology, electronics packaging, and printed circuit board technology. The slowing or potential halt of Moore’s Law — a critical driver for connector technology and demand, or the emergence of a new set of technologies, e.g. ‘Beyond Moore’ or ‘More Than Moore’, is also examined.

The report discusses how the industry will move forward, forecasts key markets, and gives long-range projections on both connector and equipment markets. Many forecasters think the recovery will continue to be slow and painful, or backslide into another recession. Others see the potential for renewed growth as governments grapple, perhaps successfully, with tax, energy, sovereign debt, and environmental policies. Recommendations for connector industry research and development is also provided.
