Company’s total addressable market opportunity < $6 billion – Why is the EV larger than $1.8 billion?
“Although numerous third party industry studies estimate the total global merchant market for AC-DC and DC-DC switching power supplies to exceed $20 billion of annual revenue, representing approximately two-thirds of the total annual consumption of switching power supplies (i.e., the sum of merchant and captive volumes consumed), the Company competes in smaller, well-defined commercial and military market segments and niches within those segments. We believe, based on these third party estimates, AC-DC power supplies represent more than 85% of the total merchant market, reflecting a wide range of battery charging applications, primarily in the consumer, mobile device, and office computing segments (commodity segments in which we currently do not compete, together representing more than 50% of the total merchant market). These third party industry studies set forth estimates of varying levels of annual, dollar-based, nominal revenue growth across the merchant market segments in which we compete. These studies indicate most of the market segments we serve with Advanced Products have experienced high single-digit and low double-digit growth over the past three years. These studies also indicate most of the market segments we serve with Brick Products have experienced low to middle single-digit growth over the past three years.” Source: Annual report
“Based on our own assessment of the market segments in which we do compete, we estimate the Company’s total addressable market opportunity within the AC-DC portion of the merchant market may be approximately $1 billion annually. However, because this market is particularly commoditized and customer applications generally do not require the superior performance of our solutions, we pursue narrowly defined niches for which our highly differentiated front-end products, notably the PFM© and RFM©, are well-suited and competitively superior, thereby reducing our served addressable market opportunity. Should we successfully penetrate these potentially high growth niches, we believe that our served addressable market opportunity in AC-DC should expand. We estimate our total addressable market opportunity within the DC-DC portion of the merchant market may exceed $3 billion annually. We estimate our served addressable market to exceed $1 billion annually, with a relatively high dollar and unit volume growth forecast for the market segments and niches we are pursuing with Advanced Products.” Source: Annual report
