Industrial robots rely on DC-DC converters to efficiently manage and distribute power within their systems. These converters play a pivotal role in ensuring a stable, regulated power supply, vital for the precision and reliability demanded in robot operations. Moreover, as automation gains momentum, the demand for industrial robots will continue to surge, further fueling the need for DC-DC converters. Their role extends beyond just robots; they are essential in a wide range of electronic devices and systems used across industries, including healthcare, telecommunications, and renewable energy. For instance, in March 2022, TDK Corporation lunched FS1412 microPOL power module. At 5.8 x 4.9 x 1.6 mm, the FS1412 is part of a new series of μPOL DC-DC converters with increased performance, smallest available size, ease of use, and simplified integration for applications such as big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), 5G cells, IoT networking, telecommunication, and computing enterprise.
 

However, in the service sector, applications, such as healthcare and logistics, are increasingly relying on robots for tasks such as patient care and package handling. DC-DC converters enable the power management necessary for these autonomous systems.
 

The functionality of DC-DC converters in low-power mode poses a significant market challenge due to their impact on overall efficiency and performance. Inadequate performance in low-power situations can lead to energy wastage and reduced battery life, diminishing the appeal of these converters in applications requiring energy-efficient solutions. As energy conservation and extended battery life become increasingly vital across various industries, addressing this pitfall is crucial to maintaining competitiveness in the DC-DC converter industry.
 

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly disrupted the DC-DC converter market as demand fluctuated, affecting the revenue. Supply chain disruptions caused component shortages, leading to delayed production and increased costs. Work-from-home trends reduced the need for portable devices, affecting specific converter segments. Moreover, travel restrictions hindered market expansion, limiting global reach. The pandemic also highlighted the importance of resilient supply chains and accelerated the adoption of digital technologies. Remote work reduced office energy consumption, impacting data center applications. The DC-DC converter industry, consequently, faced challenges in demand, supply chain management, and adapting to a changing landscape.
 

DC-DC Converter Market Trends

Miniaturization and achieving high power density are key trends in the market. As electronic devices become smaller and more portable, there is a growing demand for compact & lightweight DC-DC converters. These smaller converters are essential for applications such as mobile devices, IoT gadgets, and wearables. They enable manufacturers to create more space-efficient and sleek designs while maintaining or improving power conversion efficiency. This trend aligns with the consumer preference for smaller, more portable, and aesthetically pleasing electronic products.
 

The increasing adoption of remote sensing and monitoring solutions by various industries, such as pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, wastewater treatment & others, for real-time process control, monitoring, and data collection is driving the industry growth. In the petrochemicals sector, DC-DC converters are utilized for real-time remote monitoring and optimization of carbon & other harmful gas emissions to meet strict environmental regulations. Moreover, the integration of artificial intelligence in manufacturing processes is also enhancing the demand for DC-DC converters as they can constantly monitor chemical & other liquid composition, temperature, pressure, and other details. Such real-time and precise data reduces waste, increases throughput and improves resource allocation.
