TAIPEI--Taiwan-based Delta Electronics Inc. said Saturday that it ranked as the largest power management system supplier in Europe in 2013 due to the region's intensive efforts to develop its fourth generation Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) networks.
Jackie Chang, head of Delta Electronics' EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) operations, said his company has benefited from strong demand from Europe, where the 4G networks have made a leap, so that the Taiwanese firm for the first time has won a 23 percent share in the European power management market to become the largest vendor there.
Due to rising demand overseas, Chang said Delta Electronics rolls out power management systems on two working shifts a day, expanding from the previous single shift, but its supply is still unable to satisfy customers' growing orders.
Chang said Delta Electronics' power management systems have been used by the first-tier telecom operators in Europe, such as the U.K.-based Vodafone, which applied Delta Electronics' power solutions in both of its 3G and 4G services.
In some regions with limited electricity grid infrastructure, Delta Electronics is able to integrate hybrid renewable solutions for remote telecom base stations, which is expected to cut electricity and fuel consumption, Chang said.
Chang added that Delta Electronics' uninterruptible power supply technology has become a reliable key product in a wide range of business sectors in several countries in the EMEA region, such as the railway system in Germany, the banking system in Poland, the medical care business in Russia and airliners in Turkey.
In addition to the increased shipments in power management supply in the EMEA market, Delta Electronics has witnessed sales of its industrial automation equipment and Internet communications products growing in the region, Chang said.
He said his company posted about US$1.1 billion in revenue in the region last year, and with rising demand from the area, sales for 2014 are expected to grow by double digits, with revenue generated from industrial automation products likely to grow 20 to 30 percent year-on-year.
