Darnell Group’s second-edition report, "DC Building Power: Emerging Trends, Application Drivers and Market Adoption Forecasts" provides the first quantitative forecasts for near-term and longer-term growth for this important emerging market. In the near-term this market is expected to arrive at a minimum "critical mass" of sales needed to cross the chasm into mainstream adoption. At that point, sales will exceed $2 billion annually. Also at that time, growth rates will accelerate. This report identifies the near-term growth and quantifies the longer-term maximum market (saturation) potential for these important emerging powering technologies. Information can be found here.
"This groundbreaking analysis quantifies the potential market for dc power solutions in four specific sectors: data centers, commercial/industrial facilities, residential installations and telecom central offices, according to Richard Ruiz, an analyst at Darnell. "For each sector an analysis identifying two key market penetration rates of adoption for dc power was used. The first is the ’threshold’ rate of market penetration required for dc technology to achieve in each sector in order to continue expanding. The second is the ’saturation’ rate which represents the maximum market share," he concluded.
