Copper terminal classification
The copper terminal is generally made of copper, brass or phosphor bronze. The appearance of the product is the round head of the spatula, the top side is the fixed screw side, and the end is the copper core of the wire and cable after the upper peeling. The varieties are divided into oil blocking Type and tube pressure type. The oil-blocking type is better. In order to resist air oxidation, copper terminals are generally plated with a plating layer, usually aluminum plating, nickel plating, copper plating, nickel plating copper alloy, etc., to prevent oxidation and blackening.
Copper terminal market analysis
In recent years, due to the rapid development of the upstream industries of copper terminal products such as computers, communications and networks, and consumer electronics products in China, the Chinese copper terminal market has maintained an annual growth rate of more than 20%. However, in 2008, due to the severe recession in the international market, the growth rate of China's copper terminal market dropped to 9.1%, which was the low level in recent years. Since 2009, with the recovery of the world market, China's copper terminal market has begun to resume a relatively high growth trend. The total domestic copper terminal market sales for the year reached 16.52 billion pieces, an increase of 11.8% over 2008. Total sales reached 14.1 billion yuan, an increase of 11.3% from the 7.9 billion yuan in 2008. The domestic copper terminal market was 14.1 billion yuan in 2009 and increased to 17.2 billion yuan in 2010, an increase of 22% year-on-year.
The rapid growth of the domestic copper terminal market firstly benefits from the rapid development of the domestic network communication industry, and the demand for domestic copper terminal products is mostly concentrated in the network communication industry. Although some copper terminal manufacturers have gradually shifted their products to new consumer electronic devices in recent years, in terms of the overall application of copper terminal products, the country still focuses on the field of network communications. In 2010, China's network communications market demand for copper terminal products reached 7.1 billion yuan, accounting for 41% of the total domestic connector market sales. With the rapid development of consumer electronics and electrical appliances industry in China, the electrical and electronic device fields have also become the second largest demand for domestic copper terminal products. In 2010, the required copper terminals were 3.3 billion yuan, accounting for a total of 3.3 billion yuan in the market. 20%.
With the expansion of production, the export of domestic copper terminals is also increasing year by year. In 2010, China's copper terminal exports reached 794 million US dollars, an increase of 15.2% over 2009.
With the continuous development of the electronic information industry, the Chinese market's demand for copper terminals continues to expand. It is expected that the average annual growth rate of the Chinese terminal market will remain at about 15% in the next five years, which is much higher than the world market's growth expectation of about 7%. It is estimated that by the end of 2012, China's copper terminal sales will reach 26.1 billion yuan, becoming one of the world's terminal markets with development potential.
In terms of import and export, the average annual growth rate of China's copper terminal market exports will remain at about 14% in the next five years. By 2012, China's copper terminal exports are expected to reach 25.11 billion pieces and sales will reach 14.58 billion yuan. By 2015, China's copper terminal market exports are expected to reach 32.31 billion pieces and sales will reach 18.76 billion yuan.
