As these vehicles with automotive on-board power inverter are more reliable than conventional internal combustion engine or hybrid vehicles, rapid electrification of the automotive industry is likely to propel the growth of the automotive on-board power inverter market.
With the rise in a number of travelers enjoying long-distance travelling for pleasure, demand for various infotainment devices such as smartphone, laptops, small TV and others has increased. This has led manufacturers to install automotive on-board power inverters which can provide power to these infotainment devices. In addition, the inclusion of additional electronic devices drive-by-wire technologies, collision sensors, GPS, and other connected systems have increased power need of vehicles, in turn driving the adoption of automotive on-board power inverter by automotive manufacturers. The evident growth of OEMs in the automotive industry and their entry into the electric vehicle industry is likely to propel the growth of the automotive on-board power inverter market in future.
Inverter is plugged in vehicle’s 12v supply of power. With the help of this device vehicle’s power supply is increased from 12v to 230v Alternating Current, thus allow the consumer to function the electronic and electrical equipment carefully at a distance from the standard mains power. There is an increasing requirement for inverters that can convert the power from Direct Current to Alternating Current. This requirement is mainly from various manufacturers electronic gadgets as these gadgets need more power. The automotive on-board power inverters are typically forced to function on the power of 120-volt Alternating Current. One of the important features of these inverters are they constantly change their polarity and transmit the current one way over the circuit. Afterwards they disappear and send the current the other way. The whole process happens very quickly i.e. at a speed of around 60 periods per second. Cigarette lighter, 12v socket of accessories, fuse panel and direct to battery are most common configuration.
