Global DC Power Supplies Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 – 2035

The global DC power supplies market size is estimated to reach ~USD 3.34 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~7.70% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In addition to this, in the year 2022, the market size of DC power supplies was ~USD 1.41 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to growing adoption of electric vehicles. In 2021, the number of electric vehicle (EV) sales doubled from the previous year to reach about 5 million, a new high globally. Only about 119 000 electric vehicles were sold worldwide in 2012. DC electricity flows continuously in a single direction. Batteries, solar cells, and fuel cells all use this kind of power. Despite the fact that AC mostly replaced DC power for power grid applications, DC power has recently had a rebirth as numerous contemporary devices operate on it. Hence, electric vehicles rely on DC electricity. Therefore, with the growing demand for electric vehicles, the market is estimated to grow.

Moreover, there has been growing initiatives taken by the Government in order to promote adoption of electric vehicles. For instance, Phase-II of the FAME Programme, which began on April 1st 2019, was approved by the Indian government with a budget of USD 121 Million for a three-year term. In order to increase the demand for xEVs in the nation, 86 percent of overall financial support was set aside for the Demand Incentive. In order to create demand, this phase was estimated to support 7000 electric buses, 5 lakh electric three-wheelers, 55,000 electric four-wheel passenger cars (including strong hybrids), and 10 lakh electric two-wheelers. Hence, this factor is estimated to boost the demand for electric vehicles, further influencing the market growth over the forecast period.

Global DC Power Supplies Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand for LED - While about 49% of the world's light sources were LEDs in 2019, it is anticipated that this percentage would increase to about 86% by 2030. Light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, are semiconductor devices resembling transistors or other diode types with the additional capability of converting electrical energy into light energy. As a result, they run on low DC voltages and cannot be directly connected into an AC power source, different from an incandescent light bulb. Hence, the demand for DC power supplies is estimated to grow.

  • Rise in Demand for Smartphones - There are anticipated to be about 5 billion smartphone users worldwide in 2023, which translates to approximately 85% of the world's population having a smartphone. However, the smartphones after a certain period of time face various issues, and DC power supply is used to detect errors. A DC power supply is a necessary piece of equipment for mobile repairs. It is used to identify several kinds of flaws in mobile phones.

  • Surge in Adoption of IoT - IoT has gained great importance in past few years and they are adopted by large number of organizations of all type. In 2021, about 47% of major businesses used the Internet of Things, compared to approximately 25% of small businesses in Europe. The monitoring and regulating process is made accessible everywhere, at any time, as a result of the Internet of Things (IoT). Hence, IoT is deployed in order to control speed of DC motors.

  • Growth in Power Generation from Solar - A record about 178 TWh more electricity was produced by solar PV in 2021. The third-largest renewable electricity technology after hydropower and wind, solar PV accounts for approximately 2 % of the world's electricity production. Hence, the demand for DC power supplies is estimated to increase. When employing solar energy for essential electrical demands, DC systems are typically more dependable and effective.

  • Upsurge in Data Centers - In the entire world, there are about 7,999 data centers. Approximately 32% of the data centers among them are situated in the US. Alternate current (AC) power distribution systems are typically used in data centers. However, there has recently been an increase in interest within the sector to investigate and make use of direct current (DC) power distribution systems as an alternative. Since, compared to AC systems, DC systems require less space, equipment, installation, and maintenance. Hence, their preference is growing in data center.


  • Growing Adoption of High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC)
  • Stringent Government Regulation in Order to Reduce E-Waste
  • Unauthorized & Low-Quality Products - The global producers of DC-DC converters or the owners of their trademarks are facing a significant threat from unlicensed and subpar goods in regional marketplaces. Local producers of AC DC power supply converters frequently offer their products at reduced rates while using stolen trademarks and logos of well-known brands, which causes a significant loss to the market for DC power supplies globally.
