Details

Bishop and Associates Inc. announces the release of a new ten chapter, 248-page research report providing both qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global RF connector market. RF connector sales by region, for the years 2014, 2015, 2016F, and 2021F are provided for each RF connector family and type.

Major changes currently are underway for coaxial connectors and applications. This report recaps applicable connector technology, applications, trends, and marketplace information with the intent of providing an understanding of different connector types and performance.

Supplier data, test report methodology and results, may vary by model and by manufacturer. Design, production tolerances, test equipment and methods, all become more complex as frequency increases. Often specific-product (financial) margins follow frequency (as a 1.0 mm should be more profitable/costly than a SMA) while usage and higher production quantities favor those with older technology and lower frequency. The result is that most microwave and millimeter wave products are manufactured in the US or Europe, while the majority of lower frequency RF interconnect are produced in Asia. This report does not delve into the rationale behind the “where, how and why” of resulting output, but rather focuses on the “what” involving RF, microwave, and millimeter connectors.
