UK Connector Orders Up 10% in first quarter 2024, with Book-to-Bill holding at 1:1

In its Q1 report for 2024, ITSA members have seen a 10% overall growth in orders, with some segments outperforming expectations.

Key Stats: –

  • Revenues are flat versus the exit of 2023, but continue to hold up.
  • Some key markets showing significant growth, with Broadcast +70% and Data Centre +31%
  • Mass Transport was +11%, but concerns expressed over two major rolling-stock manufacturers having no current orders.
  • The UK connector market continues to perform well, and this is supported by both the Manufacturing PMI and Make UK data.

Although 2024 has seen a good start for ITSA members, ITSA estimates that the UK connector market will likely only see low single-figure growth over the full year.

Nevertheless, ITSA members remain incredibly positive about the longer-term future.
