  13. 13. Micro Coaxial Cable | 13 where the network infrastructure enters the game. Traditionally, coaxial cables have been the right fit for radio frequency signal transmission. However, to sustain this dynamic network, one starts to reconsider the traditional method. Implications for the Cable Industry Relatively stable prices for 2013 would be welcomed by the cable industry and would reduce the risks that volatile copper prices can leave cable manufacturers open to. If, as is forecast, the copper price then starts to fall the cable industry will need to manage its business to limit any potential losses associated with holding high priced stocks, and it will also need to be prepared for falling turnover by value. On the plus side lower prices will reduce the cost of raw material and work in progress stocks which should ease some of the pressure on less well capitalized companies. A lower copper price may also reduce interest in looking at alternatives to copper.
  14. 14. Micro Coaxial Cable | 14 2. Market Trend - Micro Coaxial Cable Assembly or High Speed Cable Assembly suppliers in the global automobile industries/companies The Global Automotive cable assembly market to grow at a CAGR of 6.8 percent in terms of revenue over the period 2011-2015. Micro Coaxial cable assemblies have been used extensively in medical equipment, and they are now beginning to attract considerable attention as wiring component for consumer electronics, especially LCD panels used with notebook computers, and the market demand is increasing.

  15. 15. Micro Coaxial Cable | 15 Micro Coaxial Cable Assembly – Automobile Industry Automotive cable assemblies are the largest end-use equipment market for cable assemblies. Accounting for more than 25% of all cable assemblies built, automotive cable assembles can be found in every region of the world, with production location and type of assembly tied to the vehicle brand and final vehicle assembly location. Growing exponentially with the increased electronic content in vehicles, automotive cable assemblies are generally built to a number of governmental and industry standards. These standards include USCAR, SAE, EC, or JASO, and often involve connector design/choice, cable choice, and even terminating method. Although many assemblies are direct connector-to-connector types, many automotive cable assemblies incorporate multiple connectors, as well as various cable types. The Global Automotive cable assembly market to grow at a CAGR of 6.8 percent in terms of revenue over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors for this growth is the increasing demand for electric vehicles. The Global Automotive cable assembly market has also been witnessing the increasing demand for hybrid vehicles during the forecast period. However, the increasing financial constraints are acting as a barrier to the market growth. Key vendors dominating this market space include Yazaki Corp., Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd., Delphi Automotive plc, and Leoni AG. Other vendors include report Lear Corp., Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd., Kyungshin Corp., PKC Group plc, and Kromberg and Schubert GmbH. In H2 2008, the number of orders obtained by automobile manufacturers shrunk dramatically.

As the increasing electronics get applied to the automobile, and the population of hybrid vehicles increases, automotive cable assembly market grows steadily, and the market value was US$32 billion in 2012.
  16. 16. Micro Coaxial Cable | 16 Market Shares of World’s Major Manufacturers of Automotive cable assembly Global automotive cable assembly market is monopolized by large manufacturers, the top four of which hold more than 75% market shares. All the manufacturers except Delphi are Japanese enterprises. The manufacturers of automotive cable assembly must have production experience and cost control ability. Yazaki, Sumitomo, Leoni, Furukawa, Fujikura, Coroplast and Comba are the manufacturers starting from wire and cable business. Most of these manufacturers own upstream mining resources. Sumitomo and Furukawa have their own copper mines and they do quite well in cost control. Traditional auto parts makers do not have many advantages in wire harness, so Valeo sold cable assembly business to Leoni.
  17. 17. Micro Coaxial Cable | 17 Secondly, the manufacturers of automotive cable assembly should have technical expertise in automotive connectors. Fujikura boasts of the state-of-the-art connector technologies; so do Yazaki and Sumitomo. Hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as the implementation of safety and infotainment options, including GPS systems, electronically-controlled transmissions, rear seat video and game consoles, and multiple zone climate controls, have created new and expanded opportunities for automotive cable assemblies during the last decade. These changes, coupled with the automotive manufacturers desire to reduce size and weight and, in turn, increase fuel economy, will also spark future automotive cable assembly designs, allowing the automotive cable assembly market to remain the largest cable assembly sector for years to come. Impact on the Cable Assembly Industry The worldwide market share for automotive cable assemblies was 3.6% in 2012.  Europe has had two quarters of GDP contraction in 2012. It looks likely that this recession will continue impacting all market sectors in Europe. Year-to-date, the interconnect industry is down more than 10% in Europe. Europe will recover this interconnect sales decline and grow automotive sales by 3.2% compound annual growth rate over the next five years.  China and Asia Pacific will make up for the production volume drop in Europe, so the overall interconnect market and number of vehicles produced will grow. By 2016, China and Asia Pacific will have combined interconnect sales equaling 27% of the global market and 43% of the vehicles produced; thus, the interconnect content per vehicle will be lower.  The growth in electronic/electrical content in light vehicles is growing. Basic systems, such as automatic door locks, keyless entry, side airbags, and navigation systems, have migrated from high-end vehicles down to the middle-level cars and below. Collision avoidance systems, back-up cameras, and stability control systems are following the same path. Over the next five years, 25% of the growth in interconnect sales to the automotive market will come from the increasing content. The worldwide market value for automotive cable assemblies in 2012 is $33.6 billion. The majority of the growth will be in China, Asia Pacific, and North America.
  18. 18. Micro Coaxial Cable | 18 3. The recent trend of Car Module suppliers (Car module is intended for AVN system and AVN Cable Assembly) The global car navigation market size is projected to be 51 million units in 2015.

As CAR AVN falls into automotive electronics segments, the global market for Automotive Electronics, estimated at US$191.3 billion in 2013 and forecast to be US$204.6 billion in 2014, is further projected to reach US$314.4 billion by 2020, thereby maintaining a CAGR of 7.3% between 2012 and 2020. OEM Automotive Electronics, accounting for an estimated share of 86.3% in 2013 equating to US$165.2 billion in the overall Automotive Electronics market, is forecast at US$177.2 billion in 2014 and expected to register a 2012-2020 CAGR of 7.6% in reaching a projected US$277.1 billion by 2020. The major trends driving demand for increased penetration of electronics in automobiles include regulatory mandates for improving fuel economy and stringent emission standards as well as requirements for advanced safety systems, consumer demand for safety & security and comfort & convenience features, and growth of hybrid and electric vehicles. Environmental issues and highly stringent government regulations have been forcing auto OEMs to accord greater importance to fuel efficiency. AVN System – Global Market Status The global car navigation market size is projected to be 51 million units in 2015. Electronic car navigation systems (CNS) have a large and growing market worldwide, especially in Japan. Japan, flowed by United States is the principle global supplier of AVN systems, accounts the largest market share, United States represents the second in market share and rest of the share is largely accounted by European countries. Japanese cities have grown dramatically over many centuries, and are still growing. In Japanese car navigation system market, the sales of low-priced AVN have been growing and they are expected to continue to grow in the future. On the other hand, in overseas
  19. 19. Micro Coaxial Cable | 19 car navigation system market, the demands for AVN to be installed neatly and smartly have been increased. In the current Japanese market, the sales of car navigation system have been increasing. Its prices are lowering with the spread of PND (Personal Navigation Device), and the car navigation system is being clearly polarized between the PND and AVN (installed-type- all-in-one navigation).Also in the AVN, the demand has been shifted to low-priced model of 100,000 yen or less. Transition in Japanese Car Navigation Market (Sales Volume)
  20. 20. Micro Coaxial Cable | 20 In the Market outside Japan, the PND (Personal Navigation Device) has led the car navigation system market and its sales have been significantly increasing. Under this influence, the sale of AVN also has been steadily increasing and a certain size of the AVN market has been established. The AVN has a great future potential. Transition in Overseas AVN Market (Sales Volume)
  21. 21. Micro Coaxial Cable | 21 Because of the above mentioned situation, see the AVN is in high demand Worldwide. However, there is a major challenge of “ price reduction” in both the PND and AVN, and if focusing on more rapid products development, there is a need to develop a platform for Global expansion. The global number of navigation shipments across all form factors including in-dash, portable, and mobile navigation devices is expected to grow from more than 100 million in 2010 to 283 million in 2015. Worldwide demand for car navigation system increased 11.7% year on year to 10.94 million units. In Japan, shipment increased on the back of a rebound in auto production and an expansion in consumer car navigation system lineups sold on the market. In the U.S the shipment were up on strong automobile sales. However in Europe, shipment increased only slightly due to lackluster automobile sales as regional economic conditions remained weak.

AVN Cable Assembly for CARs Global Cable Assembly Market has projected five-year compound annual growth rate of 8.0 percent, the industry value will grow to $130,693 million by 2014. Various components of a car need electrical power, which must all be connected to the battery through the use of cable assemblies. The cables that are used are often used are expected to last a long time and be able to last through a range of environmental conditions – meaning the cable selection is also important. More often than not, a car will use colour coded cables to allow them to gain quick diagnostics and replacement within the car. When the cable assembly is used sufficiently, it will ensure that operations go a lot smoother than it would do without the use of an efficient cable assembly. Cable assemblies are essential for devices powered by electricity, with common example being an automobile (car). The specific design of a cable assembly depends upon its use and the needs of the user. Overall, there are usually industry specifications for each of the major types of use, such as for airplanes or cars. The ever-increasing demand for on-board technology and connectivity may be the market driver for vehicle purchases in the very near future rather than the vehicle brand name. Current estimates are that as much as 35% of the total vehicle cost is the in-car electronics and the content continues to grow.

Furthermore, TechniSat leading quality producer in the fields of LCD TV sets, car communications – car radios and navigation systems – as well as PC components, also secure a significant market share in Germany. The three major German automotive audio video manufacturers — Becker, Blaupunkt and Continental (Siemens VDO) almost monopolize the German market. The European Market The European market for car navigation systems has been slow to develop: the aftermarket has been virtually non-existent until recently. Only in the last decade, the OEM market finally begun to develop significantly. Strategy Analytics expects that Germany will remain the largest market in Europe for factory-fitted navigation systems, followed by the UK and France. Germany: Demand grows for CD-less audio, connected navigation and larger in-car displays In the overall market for in-car multimedia, demand in the main category of portable satellite navigation devices fell by 10% at the start of 2011. Particularly positive results were generated in the niche for multimedia monitors that are permanent in-car fixtures.
  26. 26. Micro Coaxial Cable | 26 Special double DIN navigation devices recorded growth of 4%, which was primarily attributable to products that can be easily integrated with the dashboard and where the technical connections are tailored to the respective car manufacturer. One in three upgrade devices are now customized for specific makes of car. This new product category is experiencing a real boom at present, recording a sales increase of 58%. Consumers are willing to spend more on these high-end devices, with average expenditure of around EUR 1,060. Willingness to spend is clearly high for new products and recognizable brand value, particularly when upgrade devices are more attractively priced than the original equipment from car manufacturers, while offering the same or better technical functions. A comparable development emerges at the high-end of the portable navigation devices (PND) segment. An increase of 70% was recorded for devices that provide up-to-date information such as traffic, flight and weather reports on the move or that have a Google search function. The share of “connected PNDs” in overall portable navigation devices sales therefore increased from 5% to 10%. Rising popularity is also evident for computer graphics navigation support providing photographic images of motorway junctions, sights of interests, landscapes and cities. As a result, screens are increasing in size, and growth is evident in the segment with 5 inch displays in particular.

Applicability of Micro Coaxial Cable Assembly or High Speed Cable Assembly in AVN system Yes, Micro coaxial cable assembly is applicable in AVN system (Through primary research). Method for the applicability of Micro Coaxial Cable Assembly or High Speed Cable Assembly in AVN system Micro Coaxial cable assemblies are used in a variety of products serving many different markets. It is used to carry higher frequency signals from point A to point B with minimal signal loss and degradation. Cables and interconnect systems are getting smaller, and overall volume is increasing. The most common applications include antenna cabling, cable TV equipment interconnects and automotive applications. In automobiles, for example, more and more systems (satellite radio, AM/FM radio, GPS, cell phones, etc.) are being packed into extremely tight spaces. This increased density of signal carrying cables makes coaxial cable an obvious choice to reduce or eliminate signal interference. OEMs tend to outsource coaxial cable assemblies since they are considered a commodity and not part of their core business. Increasingly, cable and connector manufacturers are producing and providing finished cable assemblies to the OEMs. Since they manufacture the cable and connectors, these manufacturers have a cost advantage over subcontractors who must purchase the components on the outside. A coaxial connector and a method for assembling a coaxial connector which can enhance work efficiency and can simplify equipment required for the assembling. The coaxial connector is assembled by  a first process for forming an insulator assembly  a second process for setting the insulator assembly to an outer conductor terminal via the upper-side opening in the terminal from the direction intersecting the terminal axis perpendicularly a third process for holding the insulator of the insulator assembly by caulking a pair of caulking pieces for holding the insulator, and for connecting and fixing the insulator
  28. 28. Micro Coaxial Cable | 28 assembly with a coaxial cable by caulking a pair of caulking pieces for braid connection and a pair of caulking pieces for fixing a sheath, respectively. Methods of Applicability – Micro Coaxial cable assembly There are a myriad of connector types on the market, even greater than the number of different cable types that are available. Some connector designs require additional processing steps, such as folding back the braided shield, tinning the center conductor, etc. Older connector types typically have many parts including the rubber boot, crimp ring, connector body, center contact and connector housing. Newer connector types are being introduced which have fewer parts, sometimes only a single part. For example, the Radiall R3C connector is available on reel and can be applied in a crimping press in one operation. These one-piece connectors lend themselves to automatic assembly methods. The trend is toward fewer connector parts, making it easier for both manual and automatic assembly methods.
  29. 29. Micro Coaxial Cable | 29 Regardless of where coaxial cable assemblies are produced, there is a benefit to using partial or fully automatic assembly methods as opposed to strictly manual methods. For smaller batches and frequent changeovers, producing cable assemblies in a semi- automatic work cell is usually more cost effective. Once the production volume increases above 50,000 cable assemblies per month for a given assembly, it makes sense to invest in a fully automatic assembly system. A fully automatic assembly system can be equipped with quality monitoring equipment such as non-destructive pull testers, electrical testers, etc. to ensure that all products is fully tested as it is built. A good/bad sorting station and destructive piece cutter can be added to cut the ends off of any cable assembly that fails any of the quality tests. The use of coaxial cable assemblies continues to increase. Coaxial cable assemblies can be produced using hand tools or using fully automatic equipment with varying levels of automation in between. The level of automation employed usually depends on the typical batch sizes being produced. Low volume, high mix jobs lend themselves to semi- automatic work cell type assembly, and high volume, low mix jobs are best done on fully automatic systems. Newer connector types have fewer parts. Fewer parts to assemble makes it easier and less expensive to automate the process. This results in lower automation costs and shorter production cycle times than was possible with older multi-part connectors. The higher the level of automation, the easier it will be to maintain consistent high quality. Of course, it's possible to manually assemble a coaxial cable assembly but automation is the key to quality.

As in other fields, military wires primarily serve two purposes: transmission of power and transmission of telecommunications payloads and signals. These two broad usages span a wide array of applications and industries. Consequently cables and wires comprise a formidable market on their own. The underlying operating principle has remained consistent over the years and is fairly
  45. 45. Micro Coaxial Cable | 45 uncomplicated with regards to cables super flexible wires serving as conduits to connect high-tech islands. This simplicity in technology does not rub off on its market dynamics. The result of this simplicity is a large number of significant stakeholders. Additionally, these diverse stakeholders are very sensitive to macroeconomic trends on the global scale. The raw material costs on the supply side explain much of the volatility in the cable market. As a result, the pricing trends of cables and wires are not entirely driven by market demand. The market is also far from being homogenous, with the end user profiles ranging from wholesale purchasers, telecom operators, retail users, utility managers, power supply companies as well as enterprises. The leverage enjoyed by the buyers is by and large proportional to their purchase volumes and inversely proportional to the importance of cables and wires to their applications. Applications Military Coaxial cable has many uses: military, medical, consumer devices, ham radio, cellular phone networks, ethernet computer networks, closed-circuit radio networks, terrestrial microwave and of course CATV Networks. Military is listed first because it seems, as is the case with many technological advances in the last century, that coax specifications were designed for and by the military for its many functions. CATV In effect, the CATV industry has become the Tail-That-Wags-the-Dog, with regards to coaxial cable. This is because the industry has become the single biggest user of coaxial cables. Cable manufacturers are stuck in the middle, creating cables that conform to new and ever changing military specifications(if they want to procure lucrative government contracts), while still supplying the needs of the CableCos(who do not change specs/requirements as often as the military). When a newer/better technology comes along that improves the characteristics of the cable(either electrically or physically) to meet some new military requirement, that cable may or may not be of any interest to the CableCo's.
  46. 46. Micro Coaxial Cable | 46 Present and Future Usage – Coaxial Cable At present, the use of coaxial cabel has reached a level of maturity which results in the integration of services beyond television, including the triad of telephone, television and broadband Internet. Currently, within the various guided media that support the deployment of data networks, one of the best known and most prominence is the coaxial cable. This cable, being a regular in homes today, has turned out to be an inseparable partner of development and infrastructure deployment of television reception in the last decades. Looking back, the original expansion is linked to the sellers of U.S. satellite television and cable who saw it as a way to improve reception in rural areas. The evolution of its use went through various significant stages, as were the beginning of the generation of specific content for distribution on this medium and its combined use with satellite transmission. Currently, the use of coaxial hybrid networks, HFC, has reached a level of maturity which results in the integration of services beyond television, including the triad of telephone, television and broadband Internet. The improvements made by the use of coaxial cable have always been supported by the initiatives undertaken by various entities that have been committed to develop technical standards giving the necessary support to the demands that gradually came up. In the next years its role will be emphasized, along with the demand of video and data communications (Internet) mainly. Given this forecast, the need for higher bandwidth is evident, resulting in the fact that they need to increase existing capacity of networks to handle the future demand, both in the downstream channel as in the return. In addition, other technologies such as DSL and wireless are undergoing major changes that are likely .in the short and long term, to be a threat cable operators markets, forcing an effort in the evolution of cable technology. The progress of the technologies associated to coaxial cable has led to other standards, focusing on the deployment of local networks in the home leveraging existing infrastructure. According to the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, there were approximately 62 million cable TV subscribers in the US as of 2012. The UK had approximately 47 million subscribers. The television transmits multiple channels through the coaxial cable technology.
