Usb Type C Market

According to Future Market Insights, the market is anticipated to reflect very strong growth prospects throughout 2030, growing at 29% CAGR. The FMI report states that the industry will gain from developments associated to the automotive industry in the near future.

FMI analysts have stated that telecommunications industry applications will be a major contributor to revenue growth in the industry in data transfer and power delivery systems. On the other hand, competition from other alternative technologies such as micro-USB is an obstacle for market players.

The USB type C industry is expected to reflect exponential growth throughout the forecast period on the back of component standardization efforts taken by manufacturers in the consumer electronics, and industrial electronics sectors. Also, the impending surge in demand for electric automobiles will also contribute to better market dynamics in the long term.

While the USB type C market is expected to continue soaring, issues in automotive applications in terms of voltage fluctuations and heat dissipation continue to be notable issues for participants in the industry.

The study by FMI covers a comprehensive overview of the industry, discussing key dynamics of the market. Some of the critical takeaways of the report include:

  • The USB type C market was valued at 7.9 billion in 2019, with growth in demand marginally impacted during the coronavirus outbreak, with supply chain disruptions.
  • Telecommunication industry applications of USB type C products contribute substantially to revenues, with the development and implementation of power delivery and connector technologies.
  • Smartphone and tablet applications of USB type C technology is reflecting higher demand than computers, cameras, TVs, and media players. However, charger and adapter applications are likely to reflect faster growth through 2030.
  • North America remains a major market, supported by demand for smartphone charging and internet applications. However, East Asia is generating lucrative growth opportunities with investments in production facilities from international players, and growing focus on industrial and automotive electronics.

“Widespread proliferation of consumer electronics and growing application of USB C chipsets in display devices and imaging applications in healthcare supports the growth of the market. Competition from alternative interfacing technologies challenges market players,” said a lead analyst at FMI.

Covid-19 Impact on USB Type C Market

The increasing penetration and use of smartphone, tablet, and laptop devices, and the increased power consumption and data transfer applications in the consumer electronics sector have remained key factors supporting the growth of the USB type C market. However, the coronavirus pandemic is estimated to marginally impact the market in the short term.

The industry is expected to face issues in terms of component and raw material supplies owing to lockdown restrictions imposed by governments around the world.

Also, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the automotive industry could restrain market growth.

However, the shift towards work from home business models and the growing popularity of remote learning options are anticipated to drive up application and demand for USB type C products.
