North America Circular Connectors Market Drivers

Rising technological upgrades for Aerospace & Defense Applications

With the increasing demand of robust and highly efficient Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the Aerospace & Defense sector, there has been surge in the requirement of strong and miniature components used for manufacturing UAVs. Specific applications that benefit from miniature circular connectors include mobile robotic equipment, hand-held electronics and Future Soldier systems. It is possible because these machines and systems require multiple circular connectors to route command signals and functions to different extremities within their instrumentation. Unmanned aircraft design is also trending this way, as many new UAV’s are reducing size and weight in an effort to enable the units themselves to be launched by hand. To do so, the units must remain small and light enough for the launch itself to be conducted by a single person. Micro-miniature circular connectors, such as those offered by Omnetics, can offer high-speed digital surveillance equipment the circuit speed and performance to insure the highest signal integrity. These technological upgrades to offer small-sized but highly efficient circular connectors tend to drive its market growth in the forecast period.

Rising Demand in Healthcare Sector

Circular Connectors plays a major role in the Healthcare sector. Different features including quick mating/unmating, keying, color-coding, chemical resist, vibration resist, enduring high-temperature and pressure are carried out easily due to application of circular connectors in different medical equipment. From patient monitoring device to disposable surgical ablation catheters, circular connectors offer medical grade push-pull, self-latching connector in plastic, metal and even waterproof IP 68 connector features. Different medical equipment which utilizes circular connector applications are patient monitor, dental laser, respiratory humidifier, endoscope, electrotherapy and many others. These rising demands of various medical equipment further drives the market growth of Circular connectors in forecast period.

North America Circular Connectors Market Challenges

Certain Limitations of Circular Connectors 

Circular connectors are currently used widely in various sectors such as Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Healthcare and others. But, in some cases, circular connectors hinder the efficiency of the equipment on which it is used due to its circular shape. Circular surface area limits the arrangement of pins and sockets on the surface of the circular connector. This limitation is typically seen in automotive sector. Moreover, with the technological upgrades and rising demand of robust and light-weight connectors, the application of plastic circular connectors is being used widely. However, not all types of plastic connectors are suitable for use in transportation, industrial, medical, laboratory or other harsh-environment applications. Plastic connectors may break faster than metal connectors, as long-term exposure to heat or direct sunlight can decondition certain types of plastic, causing cracks and deterioration. These limitations may hinder the adoption of circular connectors in these sectors further bringing major challenges in its market growth.
