The top three revenue contributing end-user segments are discussed below

Telecom/datacom: The telecom/datacom segment is anticipated to grow at a steady rate owing to the rapid expansion of telecommunications industry. Optimistic market trends in mobile broadband, cloud computing, and Big Data management are expected to propel the demand for PCB connectors in the segment.

“The expansion of national broadband network policies by numerous countries, such as India and China, is likely to support the demand for PCB connectors. The high rate of mobile penetration in these developing countries will also contribute to the growth of the segment,” says Anju Ajaykumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on engineering tools.

The increase in Internet traffic during 2005-2015 was one of the primary factors that led to the dominance of the telecom/datacom segment. Besides this, the rise in data center construction and increasing smartphone penetration are the two main factors influencing the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

Industrial/instrumentation/medical: The industrial/instrumentation/medical PCB connectors segment includes four major end-users such as energy, industrial automation, machine tools, medical electronics and others (civil engineering and heavy equipment manufacturing). Among these end-users, machine tools accounted for maximum share in the segment. The machine tools segment includes PCB connectors that are used in various machinery, machine tools, and robotics.

Computers and peripherals: The computers and peripherals segment use a varied range of products and services, most of which relate to mainframe and server computers, personal computers, and storage devices. PCB connectors act as tools to connect these hardware products while carrying out operations within a company and between businesses and various other stakeholders, such as suppliers and customers. High-volume products categorize the segment, and APAC-based players are predominant in the market.
