Dawn of the Sensor Era
We are just the beginning chapter of the changes brought about by the Internet of Things. Sensors will play an increasingly important role in the home (smart home), factory floor (Industry 4.0), hospitals, public access and transmission grids (smart cities). The opportunities presented by the sensors are not lost in connector manufacturers seeking new sales growth channels.
Electronic connector manufacturers are involved in a $6 billion global business each year, and this business has flourished over the past 75 years as electronics replaced mechanical systems and became an integral part of modern equipment. The connector industry has experienced years of steady growth and profitability due to the continuous introduction of new interfaces that provide higher current, bandwidth, package density, improved signal integrity and durability.
