Only Connect: On worldwide connector demand

connector-cn-logo.jpgWelcome to another post in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has over 15 years experience in the electronics manufacturing industry specialising in interconnection cable assembly.

The brilliant resource that is www.connector.com just gets better and better, the web portal is a mine of information and working in partnership with leading industry experts brings a wealth of information in one easy to access space.

This week I wanted to bring your attention to an interesting report produced by Bishop & Associates detailing their mid-year industry reflections and projections for the rest of the coming year.

A lot of work goes into producing these reports and they are fairly unique in their level of detail that specifically relates to the connector industry. For example, not many other electronic industry reports are a result of actually speaking directly to the people that are at the coal face of the industry.

The good news about the report is that it points to stability in connector prices and is generally positive about world wide demand.  

You can read the report here. I see a lot of projections and report these are as good as it gets. Enjoy.
