Shifting Demand in Mobile and Desktop Computing Industry Reverberate in Other Industries -- Connector Manufacturers, Caution

FARMINGTON, Conn., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Never before has the mobile and desktop computing industry experienced such dramatic change – change that has significant implications for the connector industry for at least the next decade. High-volume products typically assembled by Asian-based subcontractors and low-volume regionally built custom products characterize the computer and peripherals market. This major market sector exhibits a need for high-density, high-speed connectors and standardized I/O connectors. A typical PC or laptop contains anywhere from 20 to 30 connectors while server or storage devices contain just as many or even more.


In a new report, "Mobile and Desktop Computing Market Analysis and Forecast: 2010-2020 " Bishop & Associates, the global authority on the connectors industry, details how shifts in demand patterns in the mobile and desktop computing market will affect connector manufacturers. While some major segments have reached near commodity status, the entire industry is upheaval due to maturation of the desktop category, slowing growth in notebooks, and the ups and down of ultra-mobile smartphones and tablets. Shifts from traditional devices will present challenges to existing connector product as well as new design opportunities.  This report examines these dynamic changes from the perspective of leading OEMs and investigates important questions such as whether turmoil will arise between OEMs and ODM suppliers, will current market leaders be replaced, and where future product and customer penetration efforts be directed.
