DUBLIN, Ireland, 2 Sept. 2005. The worldwide market for DC-DC converter modules is projected to increase from $3.3 billion in 2005 to $5.4 billion in 2010, according to the analyst firm Research and Markets.

A number of trends are driving this growth, which represents a compound annual growth rate of 10.5 percent. Factors include:

* faster-than-expected adoption of the intermediate bus architecture (IBA),
* fast growth in the server segments, particularly strong VRM sales in North America, and
* equipment based on the Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA or ATCA) standard coming to market after two years of rather slow adoption.

This report provides estimates of the potential worldwide market for DC-DC converters in units, dollars and pricing from 2005 to 2010, by application, wattage, input and output voltage and product type. It also predicts the dollar market for low-wattage power versus high-wattage power, design type and amperage.

The report forecasts markets growth for four application segments: military/aerospace, communications, computers, and industrial.

Power level forecasts include:
* wattage (Less than 50 Watt segments: <4W, 4-12W, 13-24W, 25-49W; Greater than 50 Watt segments: 50-99W, 100-249W, 250-500W, >500W);
* amperage (<1Amps, 1-4Amps, 5-9Amps, 10-49Amps, 50-100Amps, >100Amps);
* input voltage (3.3V, 5V, 12V, 24V, 48V, 270V+); and
* output voltage (1.0V and Below, 1.5V, 2.5V, 3.3V, 5V, >5V).
* isolated vs. nonisolated converters, and
* custom vs. standard products.

Overall, the report covers forecasts of nine topics: power level, wattage, amperage, input voltage, output voltage, product type, application, communications sub-segment, and computer sub-segment.
