A recently release report by Technavio covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global data center UPS market for the period 2015-2019. Key findings include:
- Large enterprises and SMEs are the major end-users of the global data center UPS market.
- Data center operators are demanding more reliable UPS operating efficiency and lower TCO. This is the main factor prompting vendors to innovate using multimode UPS systems. Multimode UPS technology is highly suitable for Tier 3 and Tier 4 data center environments and will likely see increased use among data center operators worldwide during the forecast period.
- According to the report, the construction of many new data centers across the world may create a shortage of power in some countries in the near future. Many countries also suffer from frequent natural disasters that result in power outages and fluctuations in power distribution. Modern UPS systems are being developed to deal with frequent power outages, thereby boosting the need for these systems in modern data centers.
- Further, the report states that many data centers face a major problem with regard to battery failure in UPS systems.
