VDC Expects Power Management Integrated Circuit Shipments to Grow

12/24/2003 - A new study from Venture Development Corporation (VDC) titled "The Global Market for Power Supply and Power Management Integrated Circuits, Fourth Edition - Volume 1: Market Analysis" finds that combined worldwide shipments for power supply and power management ICs totaled about 5.0 billion in 2003 and is forecast to grow 8.8% until 2006.

Factors influencing forecasted growth include:

According to industry analyst Marianne D'Aquila, "The PSIC industry, although poised for recovery, is facing a paradigm shift as outsourcing and manufacturing are forecasted to continue migration to Asia. This will challenge the way vendors do business: partnership agreements become increasingly important as seen by International Recticfier and Sanyo joint venture to design, develop and market their products; and vendors need to look at increasing direct sales to build personal relations in Asia."

D'Aquila continues, "Our latest research reveals that companies who are diversified as a whole as well as through their product lines across many vertical markets fare much better in the long run as economies and product markets change. Therefore the vendors who are either a division of a large parent company or who penetrate multiple types of applications typically fare better overall."
