DC-DC Converter Market Overview


The present DC-DC Converter Market is estimated to account for USD 4.25 Billion by the end of the year 2025. However, this market is estimated to hold a 2.4% CAGR during the review period of 2019 to 2027. Generally, the DC-DC converter is an electromechanical or electronic circuit device. This device is helpful to convert a direct current (DC) source from one level of voltage to another level. These converters are relatively used to efficiently produce a regulated voltage from a direct current source, which may or may not be controlled effectively—for example, solar power to a connected load that may or may not be controlled well. Here, a constant voltage output has been maintained by its closed feedback loops even at the time of changing output currents and input voltages.


The market segments are playing a vital role in strengthening the global DC-DC Converter Market during the analysis period. The 3 VDC is anticipated to expand a steady CAGR in the assessment period as this voltage requires a smaller number of loads to run. Similarly, this voltage range is extensively used through the satellite power control units. On the other hand, the 24 VDC is projected to witness the highest CAGR over the review timeframe. This segment includes various loads such as telemetry and telecommand (TCTM) unit; magnetometer, reaction wheel (RW); and payload, power, and data handling unit (PPDHU), which requires 24 VDC for its operation.


Further, the 20–40 W converter is anticipated to expand at the highest CAGR in the review period. This segmental converter is driving the market growth because of the integration of 20 to 40 W DC-DC converters with the rising small satellites deployment in the low Earth orbit. For instance, the 20 W converter is projected to show a steady CAGR over the research period. This segment is growing due to its significant features like being available in dual or single output versions, a wide input voltage range, and a very low leakage current.


Covid-19 Impact Analysis


The covid-19 pandemic has hampered the growth of the DC-DC Converter Market Value by disrupting the manufacturing and supply chain of the market. A shortage of labor, production, and raw materials has been witnessed due to the lockdown across the globe.
