Automotive Electrical Connectors Market Drivers and Opportunities

Improving Power Distribution Architecture to Favor Market

Developed nations such as the US, the UK, and Germany are firmly shifting toward the use of electric vehicles. Companies operating in the developed region are developing high-voltage battery technologies to enhance vehicle power and energy storage capacity. Thus, the demand for supporting connectors to provide efficient power connections is growing, thereby bolstering the market growth. New electrical products such as fuse boxes, cable lugs, and busbars are being developed to improve power distribution. Fuse boxes are required to maintain efficient power distribution, which is boosting the demand for fuse boxes, thereby driving the market.

For instance, in April 2021, Eaton, the eMobility business segment, was awarded a contract to develop Bussmann series fuses and power distribution units (PDUs) for vehicle manufacturers. The PDUs, also known as fuse boxes, will be used for a new battery-electric vehicle (BEV) for light-duty commercial applications. Fuse boxes transmit battery power to vehicle components with a safety function by providing circuit protection. The changing power distribution architecture is creating the demand for new fuse boxes, thereby boosting market growth.

Raising Demand for Electric Vehicles

Governments of different countries issue specific regulations to control emissions from diesel and gasoline vehicles. Therefore, due to this standard, vehicle manufacturers are shifting their focus toward the production of plug-in hybrid vehicles, hybrid vehicles and battery-electric vehicles. Vehicle emissions are the leading source of pollution worldwide, and vehicles such as cars, trucks and buses are the largest contributors in this category. The high efficiency of electric vehicles (EVs) compared to traditional diesel and natural gas vehicles is among the key factors anticipated to fuel the automotive electrical connectors market during the analyzed timeframe. In addition, the governments of various countries such as the USA, UK and Germany offer subsidy programs to promote the utilization of electric vehicles. Therefore, increasing demand for electric vehicles is expected to create opportunity for the key companies in the automotive electrical connectors market from 2023 to 2031.
