Unlike the slower growth seen over the past several years, the projected 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.
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. Manufacturers will be required to design new products, adopt new standards and completely re-design their approach to power delivery systems.
Measuring real-time energy consumption and adjusting power delivery at critical loads is more important than ever in today’s commercial, residential and industrial environments. Demand for these functions will lead to an over 100 million unit opportunity for certain power supplies in certain applications.
Power-Supply-in-Package (PSiP) products are encroaching the functions currently occupied by LDOs, switching regulators and controllers/FETs. High growth rates are expected for all the application segments targeted by PSiP products. The total worldwide PSiP dollar market is expected to reach nearly $300 million in 2016.
In addition to traditional applications that include communications, computers and the consumer segment, new areas of opportunity such as solid-state lighting, building automation systems and the smart grid are among the expected to play a large role in the growth of the embedded power supply market.
