Working in power electronics industry, both in marketing and sales, I faced many obstacles when I had to prepare a marketing analysis of a certain product, market, technology, etc. The world of power electronics is so huge, so when it comes to digging some information, you have to consider a lot of things. First is that power electronics is everywhere. Power electronics surround us everywhere in everyday life – from household electronics in your kitchen and living room, then on your way to work or studies, in the office, in the shopping centers, cinemas, etc. It is literally everywhere. It powers every aspect of a human’s life.
Secondly, as a consequence of the first point, it varies, and there is no way to trace every power electronics unit. There are many applications, even more designs, brands, and a lot of things also depend on the region and country. Historically in some countries engineers tend to work with one design, in other countries the design is absolutely different.
And when as a marketer you need to run a marketing analysis of a certain power electronics equipment, let it be UPS (uninterruptable power supply), you have to understand that it is almost impossible to perform such an analysis, because there are thousands of UPS designs for various power ranges, various target applications, produced by hundreds of companies around the world. To be able to prepare a perfect analysis, which will be of maximum use to the end-users of it, you need to set certain and tasks. When you know what exactly to do, what region to study, what power range to consider, etc., you can get your job done well. Do not try to analyze the whole world, as there is no such thing.
Today I want to share with you information about the companies, that work in the field of marketing analysis of the power electronics market. These agencies have been working in this area for many years already, and the data they provide is reliable and can be used in your own analytical researches.
