Stable Growth Dictated by Economic Progress and Product Innovation

Although the global programmable DC power supplies and electronic loads market is mature, it continues to exhibit consistent and continuous demand. Industry test equipment vendors specialize in robust test solutions and systems. The sector is characterized by intense competition and limited product differentiation. This study contains global market sizing segmented by North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of World, complemented by key product categories. Each segment covers market challenges, drivers, restraints, technology and price trends, and competitive structure. The study period is 2010–2018 (base year of 2013) with forecasts from 2014 to 2018.

Key Findings
-The market for programmable DC power supplies and electronics loads is mature in nature but continues to exhibit consistent and continuous demand.
-The industry is represented by test equipment vendors that specialize in robust test solutions and systems.
-Considering the large number of suppliers of programmable DC power supplies selling in the global market, the sector is characterized by intense competition and limited product differentiation. The top vendors control % of total sales.
-Fewer participants in the DC electronic loads market make it slightly more concentrated in terms of market share. The top vendors control approximately % of total sales.
oThe degree of technological advancement in this sector is more profound and tailored for emerging applications.
-Key market drivers include emerging applications and new technology rollouts.
-Furthermore, many cancelled projects during the economic downturn have restarted.
-North America remains the largest market for programmable DC power supplies and electronic loads. However, Asia-Pacific is a key region for growth. Rest of World regions are also rapidly gaining momentum due to the emerging opportunities in power systems.

Product Definitions

Programmable DC Power Supplies
-These are used in the testing process to supply a regulated and precise level of voltage.
-Electronic components and devices such as power supplies, battery chargers, solar cells, and fuel cells undergo testing phases.
-Electric vehicles and energy applications also utilize testing equipment.
-DC power supplies can digitally set appropriate current limits for any application. They have a function of balancing and shutting off the power source to provide accurate output voltage levels or power to avoid damaging the device being tested. DC Electronic Loads
-These are used as a testing solution for electrical appliances and electronic equipment by simulating a load on the power supplies in various conditions.
-Quality processes are conducted by repeatedly running a DC electron load through an operation on numerous types of equipment and components.

-Programmable DC power supplies are units capable of providing very specific values of DC power with adjustable parameters of voltage and current. The power conversion is achieved through the use of the linear or the switch-mode method.
-Various packaging styles including bench top, modular, and rack mount are mentioned in this study.
-These units can be programmed to provide the precise and accurate values of DC power, current, voltage, and different power elements.

-The base year for the revenue forecast is 2013. The revenue presented in this study reflects the manufactures’ earnings, not the vertical segment expenditure. Frost & Sullivan describes a single isolation transformer as one unit and single DC electronic load as one unit.
