External ac-dc power supplies are traditionally a large stable market, with fewer major changes affecting the technology than other power supply markets such as the embedded dc-dc converter and module markets. However, given the areas of opportunity within the traditional three "C"s; communications, computer, consumer, as well as portable medical, military and a growing solid state lighting market, a number of new dynamics are coming into play.

Worldwide demand for lighting fixtures is projected to increase at a 7% annual rate through 2018 to $174.5 billion, improving upon growth that was recorded during the 2008-2013 period. Advances will be bolstered by industrialization efforts in developing nations. Specifically, locations that maintain significant and fast growing construction and motor vehicle production markets, such as India and China, will post the fastest gains in lighting fixture demand. In addition, the rebounding economies in much of the developed world will facilitate rising lighting fixture sales. Furthermore, the continued adoption of higher value lighting fixtures that are optimized for use with more efficient light sources, such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs), will fuel demand.

Supercapacitors, or ultracapacitors, or for the more technically inclined, electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs), are a kind of hybrid between a capacitor and electrochemical batteries, like lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries. They can deliver an enormous amount of power very quickly, a capability known as power density (the maximum amount of power that can be supplied per unit mass), like a capacitor. But unlike capacitors, they can store that power for longer, a capability known as energy density (the amount of energy stored per unit mass).
