MUMBAI, December 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Bharat Book Bureau presents AC-DC Power Supplies Worldwide Forecasts Trends, Developments and Competitive Environment. This report embedded ac-dc power supply market is projected to see considerable growth over the next five years, with the dollar market increasing from $20.0 billion in 2013 to $26.8 billion in 2018, a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0%. Led by a number of traditional applications including communications, computers and industrial as well as a number of emerging ones, the outlook for the embedded power supply market is expected to remain strong. (http://www.bharatbook.com/consumer-electronics-market-research-reports/ac-dc-power-supplies-worldwide-forecasts-trends-developments-and-competitive-environment.html)
Unlike the steady Growth seen over the past several years, the projected 6.0% growth rate for this market is a result of a dynamic combination of trends including the early demise of the large and once dominant desktop power supply market and the rise of a large number of high-growth emerging applications.
These trends should provide manufacturers with a host of opportunities over the next several years as the traditional desktop power supply market was made up of just a few standard form factors and wattage ranges, while the emerging applications are expected to be made up of a variety of power levels, form factors, design types and package styles.
Over 80 tables, graphs and figures are presented in this report covering the embedded power supply market for 41 applications. The focus of this comprehensive analysis will be to provide decision makers with a detailed and insightful look at the current and future opportunities available in the embedded power supply market.
The forecasts presented in this edition are based on a detailed quantitative analysis of 41 applications divided among eight categories: Communications, Computers, Industrial, Solid State Lighting, Medical, Mil/Aero, Consumer and Smart Grid. Additional power supply forecasts are generated for merchant/captive production, wattage, package style, packaging by industry and design type. The forecasts and analysis presented in this report consider application drivers, technology trends, regulatory considerations, market sizes and other factors for each segment.
The communications power supply segment is expected to have the largest dollar market over the forecast period. It will be led by applications in the consumer premises equipment sector, which will record the largest individual dollar market covered in this report. However, the segment will see a slight decline in dollar market share over the forecast period to the faster growing industrial and solid state lighting segments.
Solid state lighting (SSL) is projected to have both the fastest growing unit and dollar markets in this report and it is expected to be one of the stronger areas of opportunity for the embedded power supply market. In fact, efficient general purpose lighting is projected to provide one of the more immediate opportunities over the next several years.
Power supplies for smart grid applications which include smart meters, electric vehicle charges and smart appliances are projected to make up the fastest growing unit market. The largest area of concentration is expected to be in the area of consumer energy consumption, specifically the smart meter market. Although the smart grid segment is currently captive, a number of factors are expected to come into play that should provide opportunities for merchant power supply manufacturers.
In contrast to the last edition which included a number of major application additions and subtractions, the only new modification is the addition of an emerging vs. traditional application forecast section presented towards the end of the report. In one of the more interesting findings, the three emerging application segments - Smart Grid, Solid State Lighting (SSL) and Building Automation are projected to continue growing over three times as fast as the traditional applications, which include the communications, computers, industrial, medical, mil/aero and consumer sectors.
Embedded power supplies in the lower wattage ranges are projected to make up a growing majority of the unit market over the entire forecast period. In fact, the percentage of embedded ac-dc power supplies under 300W is anticipated to grow to over 90.0% of the embedded power supply unit market share by 2018.
Given the new areas of opportunity including the emerging smart grid, the growth of solid state lighting and new developments in building automation, a number of new dynamics are coming into play. Among the areas to watch are advances in technology, components and materials, in particular advanced semiconductor materials such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium nitride (GaN), both of which are expected to have an impact on the power supply market over the coming years?
Despite its large size, the consumer segment will be one of the least attractive areas for power supply manufacturers. This highly commoditized segment is expected to make up one of the larger unit markets, while maintaining one of the smaller dollar markets over the forecast period. Consisting largely of lower-wattage and inexpensive power supplies, this segment depends on lower-cost, captive production to produce the large volumes required for the consumer market.
One of the serious long-term threats facing the embedded ac-dc power supply industry is the further development of direct-current (dc) powered installations and buildings. In fact, the introduction of dc power to industries that traditionally rely on ac power is expected to cause a fundamental shift in how new and existing buildings are designed and operated. It will require manufacturers to design new products, adopt new standards and completely re-design their approach to power delivery systems.
The portable medical device market is one of the smaller segments covered. It does not benefit from the economies of scale and volume pricing conditions existing in the other power supply industries. However, the outlook for the medical power supply market is strong. In addition to hospitals and other medical facilities, medical devices are being purchased for homes, businesses, commercial facilities and other personal uses.
The portable military/aerospace market is also one of the smaller sectors. Like the medical sector, this sector must meet and comply with a number of strict standards and regulations that do not typically apply to other applications. Although it maintains the highest average selling price per unit, it is a small market and does not offer the number of opportunities as the other applications covered in this report.
