According to the latest market research study released by Technavio, the data center UPS market in the US is expected to generate USD 1.5 billion, growing at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period.
This research report titled „Data Center UPS Market in the US 2016-2020“, provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends.
The biggest growth is expected for rackmount UPS systems, where the market in the US is expected to reach USD 330 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 11%.
Rackmount UPS systems are cheaper than centralized and zone UPS systems. However, for a data center with a high number of racks, the installation of rackmount UPS systems will cost more compared to that of zone and centralized UPS systems.
Rackmount UPS systems are mostly adopted in small to medium-sized data centers. These systems are also used in data centers that undergo extension with the addition of racks. Zone and centralized UPS systems may not be able to meet the backup power requirement of such data centers. “With enterprises identifying the benefits of rackmount UPS systems and vendors focusing on improving the scalability of these systems, the market will see considerable growth during the forecast period,” says Rakesh Kumar Panda, a lead analyst at Technavio for data center research.
