The global RF Coaxial Connector Market was valued at $4279.8m in 2017 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.24% during the forecast period 2018-2024. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) held the major market share in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.93% during the forecast period. The increase in new telecom towers and base stations across the globe has resulted in the increased demand for coaxial connectors, which are used extensively in various telecom applications.

RF-Coaxial Connector Market Outlook

RF Coaxial Connector, referred to as radio frequency connector, typically uses coaxial cables to transmit radio frequency signals to provide a much higher level of screening. RF Coaxial connectors are used in test and measurement instruments as well as broadcast, communications, wireless, GPD, and Bluetooth devices. The different types of RX coaxial connectors include BNC connectors, MCX connectors, N-type, F-type connectors, SMT, UHF, TNC SMC, and a few others. N-type connectors, in particular, are high performance coaxial connectors used in many applications such as radio frequency applications, receivers, and medium power transmitters.

According to these findings, wireless communication devices will hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Coaxial connectors find a wide range of applications in the telecommunication sector, smart grid meters, and commercialized applications in Military and Aerospace industries.

The RF-Coaxial Connector market report includes a pricing analysis for different types of connectors. The price of telecom infrastructure was $0.34 $/unit in 2017.
