AC/DC Switching Power Supplies; Slow and Steady Replaces Inflated Growth of the Past

4/23/2003 - The revenues from North American shipments of AC/DC switching power supplies have declined dramatically in the past few years. The industry is still shrinking in certain vertical markets and growing slowly in other markets.

In general, VDC observed the following for the overall AC/DC switching power supply market for the next five years:

Global economies are not to fully recover as previously expected. Vendors who realize that near and long-term business strategies should be focused on slow economic recovery scenarios will be better equipped to make informed, intelligent and tough decisions.

Vendors will no longer have the opportunity to chase high dollar volume growth as they did during the telecom boom. Slower, steady growth with long-term market potential in markets such as industrial/instrumentation and military are now being sought after.
