The data center UPS market is expected to witness steady growth owing to increased adoption of UPS solutions in businesses to counter falling tolerance limits pertaining to data loss and disconnections in data transmission. Losing power for even a quarter of a second can result in the unavailability of IT equipment for a considerable amount of time. Increased demand from key application areas such as application servers, cloud storage, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, data warehouses, and file servers is expected to bolster demand.
Growing implementation of cloud computing coupled with the need for sensitive and ubiquitous data has encouraged data center UPS installations. The industry has been buoyed by increased adoption of mobile computing services, online services, and remote access services. Small and medium businesses (SMBs) can save the cost required for building their data warehouses by taking advantage of data centers and backup solutions. Other factors boosting the data center UPS market growth are increased adoption of Software as a Service (SaaS), high-performance computing, online gaming and online media streaming. The use of portable UPS systems has gained prominence, which is further expected to boost data center UPS market growth.
The market has been affected by slow technological developments in the wake of the economic downturn. Intense competition coupled with the lack of product differentiation has constrained market potential. The slowdown of the semiconductor market has resulted in a lack of efficient inventory supply for data center UPS systems, thereby posing a challenge to market growth. The data center UPS market can achieve growth by maintaining product reliability, efficacy, and customer relationship. Innovation in the sector is expected to be a vital opportunity for the market.
