First, the connector products began in the Second World War, mainly used in military enterprises. With the end of World War II, the world economy began to transform into people’s livelihood, the application of connectors has been extended to various fields, now let us briefly understand the connection Development miles!
Second, the connector products began during the Second World War in 1939. After the war, with the development of consumer electronics products such as TV and telephone, the connectors were rapidly expanded from early military applications to general consumer electronics, automobiles and computers. And other information fields.
Third, the development of China’s connector industry is also closely related to military use. From the embryonic stage of the 1940s, the United States invested in the production of military connectors in China to equip the Chinese army in the war. In 1949, the US capital retreated and some of the technical equipment was left behind, which formed the prototype of the development of China’s connector industry in the future.
Fourth, from 1950 to 1970, in the initial stage of development, China formed a public-private partnership with private enterprises and related enterprises before the war, and established various subordinate factories and local state-owned factories, collective factories, such as 769, 851, and eight. Wu 0 Factory, 117 Factory, Zhenjiang Connector Factory, Beijing Radio Components 9 Factory, Shanghai Radio 9 Factory, etc. The main applications of the connectors produced at this time are related to the military industry, aerospace industry.
Fifth, In the 1980s, China implemented the policy of reform and opening up, and began to switch to the production of consumer electronics products. At this time, China continued to carry out economic reforms and opened up to the outside world. Many foreign investors entered the mainland market to invest. In 1987, Japan’s First Electronics Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen SEG Electronics Group, together with Radio 9 Factory (Shenzhen Sandu SAS Electronics Co., Ltd.), was the earliest foreign joint venture. After the 1990s, encouraged by the mainland’s various foreign investment policies and incentives, connector manufacturers around the world almost transferred their production bases to China’s hot land, including the largest world-class connector manufacturers, such as: AMP, MOLEX, Amphenol, etc. all invested in China in 1992. At the same time, many other foreign companies in the 1980s, with the rise of the personal computer industry, connector manufacturers have sprung up, including JST, KET, JAM, FCI and other manufacturers, in addition, Taiwan Kang Xu, Taiwan Anpu, Taiwan Airlines International companies such as electronics have also come to the mainland to invest.
Sixth,like the Taiwan connector industry is also in the beginning stage in the 1970s, the main manufacturers such as Xinsheng Seiko, Liangwei, Ruifang Electronics, Xinyin, Zhijia, etc., mostly to produce power outlets, plugs or wiring harnesses, etc. The order of products is mainly based on the size of the company. Even DuPont has set up factories in China to produce connectors. They bring advanced machinery and equipment and a relatively large-scale production system. It can be said to be a pioneer in the connector industry.
Seventh, Around 1993, with the enthusiasm of the computer factory in China and the consideration of cost reduction, foreign connector manufacturers have gone to China to set up factories, so that the connector industry has developed rapidly! Not only do connector manufacturers in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, and Europe strengthen their investment in China, but the output value of China’s connectors is increasing day by day. The production scale of China’s connector industry also provides customers in various industries around the world.
Eighth, In recent years, China’s huge information industry market has provided a considerable space for the connector supporting market, plus the supporting share of other industries, which is growing at a rate of 15% per year. The communication and computer connector supporting market The development rate is 75% to 35%. Exports increased by 23.9% year-on-year, and imports increased by 60.4% year-on-year. Among them, the export of connectors reached 310 million US dollars, and the import reached 543 million US dollars. The gap presented was $233 million. In 2000, domestic connector demand reached RMB 90-10 billion. Communications, computers and peripherals account for more than 50%; consumer products account for about 30%.
