Rapid expansion of electric vehicles across the globe is a major factor driving the alternating current-direct current (AC-DC) power supply adapter market revenue growth

Vancouver, Sept. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global Alternating Current-Direct Current (AC-DC) power supply adapter market size was USD 11.16 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period, according to the latest analysis by Emergen Research. Rapid expansion of electric vehicles across the globe is a major factor driving market revenue growth.

Revenue growth of the Alternating Current-Direct Current (AC-DC) power supply adapter market is driven by global adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs). The electric vehicle market is experiencing remarkable growth, with sales surpassing 10 million in 2022. The proportion of electric cars in total sales has more than tripled in just three years, rising from approximately 4% in 2020 to 14% in 2022. This momentum is expected to continue in 2023, with strong sales expected to persist. In the first quarter of 2023, over 2.3 million electric cars were sold, marking a significant 25% increase compared to the same period the previous year.


 The outlook for the entire year remains promising, with an estimated 14 million electric car sales by the end of 2023, representing a notable 35% year-on-year surge. This growth is expected to accelerate further in the second half of the year as new purchases continue to rise.  The demand for the infrastructure needed to allow charging for electric vehicles is rising as their uptake soars. Adapters for converting alternating current from the grid to direct current needed to charge an electric vehicle’s batteries are crucial parts of EV charging stations. In addition, there is a rising demand for portable charging options including home charging units and portable chargers that use AC-DC power supply adapters due to the popularity of electric vehicles. The automotive industry’s rapid shift toward electric mobility is consequently spurring investments in charging infrastructure, thus creating a high demand for AC-DC power supply adapters globally and driving substantial revenue growth for companies operating in this market.

In addition, the transition to Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology is playing a crucial role in driving revenue growth of the Alternating Current-Direct Current (AC-DC) power supply adapter market. GaN technology offers several advantages over conventional Silicon-based power supply adapters, making it a highly sought-after solution. GaN-based adapters exhibit higher power efficiency, enabling reduced energy consumption and heat generation, which translates to cost savings for consumers and businesses. In addition, GaN technology allows for higher power density and miniaturized designs, catering to rising demand for compact and portable electronic devices. In July 2023, Bel Fuse Inc is broadening its range of EOS power supplies by unveiling the EPG300 and EPG500 series of AC-DC power supplies. These new additions utilize a cutting-edge design incorporating Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology, which offers enhanced efficiency and performance.

However, technological complexity and obsolescence present challenges that restrain revenue growth of the Alternating Current-Direct Current (AC-DC) power supply adapter market. As electronic devices and applications become more advanced and diverse, the demand for power supply adapters that can meet specific and intricate requirements also rises. Manufacturers are faced with the challenge of developing adapters that can keep up with rapidly evolving technologies, making it difficult to strike a balance between innovation and cost-effectiveness.
