The global board-to-board connectors market is poised for significant growth, with its value expected to rise from USD 11.6 billion in 2023 to approximately USD 15.4 billion by 2028. This projection signifies a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.8% during the forecast period.

Driving Forces:

The surge in demand for smaller electronic devices like wearables, portable electronics, and smart appliances is a key driver for the board-to-board connectors market. Manufacturers seek connectors that offer space-efficient designs while ensuring reliable interconnections between Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). Additionally, the increasing automation in developing economies is contributing to the demand for board-to-board connectors, which are vital components in automated systems.

Key Market Segment:

The segment featuring board-to-board connectors with pitch sizes less than 1 mm is projected to experience the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The trend towards miniaturization and compact designs in various industries is driving this growth. As the demand for smaller, lighter, and more portable electronic devices increases, the need for connectors with smaller pitch sizes becomes crucial to accommodate components within limited spaces.

Dominance of Consumer Electronics:

The consumer electronics segment holds the largest market share in the board-to-board connectors market. Driven by high consumer demand and shorter product lifecycles, the consumer electronics industry focuses on large-scale production. Board-to-board connectors, being integral to consumer electronics assembly, are supplied in substantial quantities to meet the industry's requirements. The trend of creating smaller and slimmer devices necessitates the use of compact board-to-board connectors to accommodate densely packed components on PCBs.

China's Leadership in Asia Pacific:

China is set to dominate the board-to-board connectors market in the Asia Pacific region. The country's reputation as a global manufacturing hub, known for cost-effective production capabilities and large-scale manufacturing infrastructure, plays a significant role. With an extensive network of electronic component manufacturers and suppliers, China efficiently produces board-to-board connectors at competitive prices. Its manufacturing expertise and economies of scale attract both domestic and international customers.
