Terminal Block Market Dynamics

DRIVERS: Ongoing advancements in connection technologies

Advancements have been observed in connection technologies in the last few years. Previously, screw-type technology was used in all types of terminal blocks. In this type of connection, users had to ensure a long-lasting connection, which was time-consuming. Screw terminals posed installation challenges, and there was also a risk of loosening wires over time. Most terminal blocks possess nearly 8 to 10 poles on average, and several terminal blocks may be in a single assembly. It takes much time for a user to unscrew and screw each connection during installation or maintenance. As a result, various versions of connection technologies evolved; for example, push-in connection technology and insulation-displacement connection (IDC).

RESTRAINT: Difficulty in selecting right terminal block according to applications

A terminal block enables connectivity between multiple wires and circuits, and the connections are enclosed in an insulated housing. It is the backbone of automation and electrical control systems. Since terminal blocks are used in various applications, such as industrial controls, lighting controls, and power distribution systems, they come with different types of wire termination connections. Similarly, terminal blocks that find applications in power supplies, HVAC systems, signal transmissions systems, etc., require different types of terminal connections, such as screw-type, spring cage, insulation displacement connection, and cable lugs and connectors.

OPPORTUNITIES: Rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing countries

Urbanization is a new trend witnessed across the world. According to the United Nations data (2018), the growing population and increasing urbanization are projected to add 2.5 billion people to the world's urban population by 2050, with nearly 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. It would eventually impact the terminal block market. Rapid industrialization and factory automation have been observed in developing countries in the last few years. This is because developed countries outsource their production task to developing countries since the cost of production in the developing countries is very low.

CHALLENGES: Difficulties in disposing of terminal block

Surface-mount technology (SMT) is a method for producing electronic circuits in which components are mounted or placed directly on the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). An electronic device powered by SMT is called a surface-mount device (SMD). SMT uses an assembly process wherein the components are joined on the surface of the board rather than inserted into holes running through the board. In the industry, through-hole technology for fitting components with wire is replaced with SMT. The manufacturing process for SMT is much more sophisticated than through-hole technology.

Sectional terminal blocks were the most extensively used terminal blocks in the market in 2021

The sectional terminal blocks segment holds the largest share of the terminal block market in 2021 and is expected to hold significant share during the forecast period. Advancements in NEMA and IEC DIN Rail sectional blocks have resulted in high adoption of these blocks in various applications such as construction, harsh environment, amusement park ride controls, discrete manufacturing, conveyance lines, special machines, educational campuses, commercial office buildings, and building automation. Sectional blocks provide more terminations per linear foot, fulfilling industry’s demands for the maximum number of terminations in a control panel.

Process control instruments industry to hold significant growth rate during the forecast period

Rapid industrialization and increased adoption of automation and instrumentation tools in process plants are the driving factors. Increased installation of terminal blocks in process monitoring and control instruments that find applications in process industries such as oil & gas and chemicals and rapid industrialization spur the growth of the terminal block industry.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the leading region in the terminal block market during the forecast period

Asia Pacific accounted for a share of more than 30% of the terminal block market and is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increased industrialization in the region, particularly in developing countries such as China, India, and Indonesia, is the major factor boosting the market growth. Further, it helps avoid non-compliance with strict environmental laws in developed countries, build good ties with other countries, and get market access. The strong focus of regional companies from the consumer electronics and automotive sectors to produce reliable and quality products using automation tools creates the need for terminal blocks for several applications in these sectors.
