Global automotive wiring harness market totaled USD24.3 billion in 2009, and rebounded in 2010 especially fueled by explosive growth in Chinese market, plus the skyrocketing copper price, the market size rose by 27.7% to USD31.9 billion. In 2011, the market size also ascended supported by continuously increasing copper price and improved automotive electronization. In 2012, benefited from North America, Japan and xEV market demand, wiring harness market kept growth of 10.5%. In 2013, slumping copper price, sluggish European economy and slipped sales volume of automobile in Europe caused the slowdown of wiring harness market, with growth rate merely 3.3%. In 2014, European economy extended its gloomy situation, Chinese automotive market fell down month by month, American market presented good performance, copper price continued declining, and Japanese Yen kept depreciation. Under such background, the wiring harness market in 2014 is projected to continue slowdown with growth rate only 2.6%.
It is estimated that in 2015 the copper price will go on slumping, Chinese automotive market growth slacken to be 5%, European market continue depressed, American market will be slightly better.
