According to the forecast of Omdia analytical agency, more than 50% of smartphones that will be put on the market this year will receive a USB Type-C interface. The report also said that the supply of USB Type-C connectors will grow from 824 million units in 2018 to 3.5 billion units in 2023.
Experts believe that by 2022, more than half of all manufactured computing devices that support data transfer will be equipped with at least one USB Type-C port. This means that the interface will be actively used not only in smartphones, but also in products such as laptops.
Although smartphones still do not have a universal charging solution, many manufacturers have stopped using their own solutions, switching to micro-USB and USB Type-C connectors. In recent years, the popularity of the USB Type-C connector, which allows you to not only charge the device, but also transfer data and perform other functions on a single cable, has grown significantly. First of all, this is due to the lower cost of USB Type-C, so this interface has become commonplace in budget devices.
Although not all smartphone manufacturers use the same solution to charge smartphones, this may change in some regions of the world. Earlier this year, an initiative was approved in the European Union that proposed the introduction of a single standard for charging devices shipped to the region. This is to ensure that users can use old chargers with new gadgets, as well as to reduce the amount of electronic waste.
