Connector Market 2026: Trends & Outlook By Industry Players

Citing one of the recent product releases in the global connector market, GCT has rolled out two USB A connectors having improved current rating and extended mating cycles over standard products. The USB1135 and USB1130 are the latest additions to the company’s USB range and are considered suitable for high traffic and fast charging applications.

While the USB1135 is a 3.0 connector tested to 20,000 mating cycles, the USB1130 is a USB A 2.0 variant that has been tested for around 10,000 cycles. This has been achieved due to enhanced retention forces owing to stainless steel construction utilized for the shell of each connector. This makes the USB1135 two times durable as compared to the standard USB A 3.0 and the USB1130 up to six times durable in comparison to the standard USB A 2.0.
