Southeast Asian DC Power Systems Market – Out Now

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Southeast Asian DC Power Systems Market" to their offering.

Widespread Deployment of Wireline Applications Augment Growth of the Southeast Asian DC Power Systems Market

The booming telecommunications sector has enabled the Southeast Asian DC power systems market to take great strides forward. The deployment of high-speed Internet transmission in wireline applications has greatly buffered growth in the region and the rollout of fixed lines in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam is likely to escalate the demand for DC power systems in the foreseeable future. Vietnam and Indonesia have emerged as the major hubs of activity thanks to their low mobile penetration rates of below 44.0 percent and 7.0 percent, respectively. In Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines, global system for mobile (GSM) applications are helping market penetration due to inadequate infrastructure and management, particularly in the rural areas. Low mobile telephony adoption in these regions has led to the increasing reliance on mobile telephone switching office (MTSO), switching centers, and base stations.

Further, there is increasing demand for low-power DC systems in the industrial sector, especially in the manufacturing sector for monitoring and control applications. Other end-user sectors that have contributed to market progression are the oil and gas, marine, manufacturing, and military segments. In Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam, the oil and gas sector has helped sustain the tempo of development with huge demand arising from the supply of power to the additional communications systems and power distribution to new platforms and vessels. "Nonetheless, the market is price-competitive and pre- and post-sales services are becoming key factors in business development," notes the analyst of this research service.

Efficient Lead Times and Cost-Effectiveness Vital for Business Continuity in this Highly Competitive Space

To overcome pricing pressure, manufacturers are exploring other options such as design outsourcing or establishing manufacturing bases in China. Fostering and establishing partnerships with local manufacturers, value-added resellers, and distributors is one of the strategies for business expansion and divergence. Manufacturers are striving hard to widen their portfolio of products and develop DC power systems with higher power density, lower power dissipation, and smaller footprint. Ultimately, the combination of efficient lead time and competitive pricing will provide a potent mix for successful business outcomes.

DC power systems with integrated solar power were introduced into the market to provide systems more in tune with environmental regulations. It can help reduce the dependence on generator sets in base stations and lower the levels of consumption of diesel and petrol. However, cost-efficiency remains the primary concern for end users and this is dependent on government initiatives and schemes to promote the green approach. Intense price competition is lowering the average selling price of DC power systems. "The average price per watt per unit has shown a substantial decrease over the past five years, declining from $5.00 to below $0.20 per watt per unit, depending on system specification," explains the analyst. "Volatility in the cost of raw materials such as copper and lead are also eroding profit margins."
