Top 7 Vendors in the Global Automotive On-Board Power Inverter Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recent global automotive on-board power inverter market report. The report will cover the automotive on-board power inverter market under the following power range: less than 150 W and over 150 W.

North America is the key market in terms of volume demand for on-board inverters, owing to the relatively higher popularity of the features and high availability. Regions such as Asia will gain momentum during the forecast period as high volume sales are expected.

Among passenger cars, sports utility vehicles (SUVs) have the highest penetration of on-board power inverters followed by the luxury sedan segment. Among LCVs, on-board inverters are most popular in the pickup truck segment.

Competitive vendor landscape

The market for on-board power inverters has numerous players, especially in the aftermarket segment. However, the need for expertise with respect to the vehicle's electrical system and the specification for installation of inverters places the OEM of installed power inverters or inverters being installed by the authorized dealer as the preferred choice among vehicle owners.

“Though the market is fragmented with several players, the direct business wins or contracts of Tier-I players that supply on-board power inverters with OEMs will certainly be the best go-to-market strategy for the rapid penetration as more vehicles get equipped with on-board power inverters,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead automotive electronics analyst from Technavio.

The other prime buying criteria lie upon the regulatory approval for on-board power inverter. Inverters that are certified with safety ratings such as UL 458 are preferred choice and hence the suppliers that work with OEMs of on-board power inverters are mandated to have the products listed by the safety regulatory agency such as UL or Electrical Testing Labs (ETL). This is another key area where the players that work with OEMs can win over the fragmented aftermarket.
