The global telecom power systems market size was valued at USD 3.30 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.2% from 2023 to 2030. These power systems are designed for fixed-line applications and wireless broadband access. Factors such as the growing penetration of telecom towers in remote locations, as well as the increasing deployment of cell power systems used for LTE networks, are expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period. Telecom power systems are designed to support telecommunication services by controlling and monitoring the flow of power in case there are any disruptions or grid power fluctuations in the network. The market has evolved in recent years due to the large-scale adoption of digital disruptive technologies and their integration into telecom infrastructure.

U.S. Telecom Power Systems Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The significant rise in cellular data traffic has encouraged the expansion of mobile networks even in remote and rural areas. Moreover, the rapid increase in the adoption of a range of connected devices has stimulated the deployment of picocells and femtocells, which require power systems. This continuous expansion of cellular networks for improving connectivity infrastructure is creating opportunities for the market globally.

To cater to the rising demand for faster connections, telecom operators are integrating their products with next-generation Wi-Fi 6, and 5G networks, and other advanced wireless technologies. Telecom operators are also offering products equipped with increased data capacities, lower latency, precise location sensing, and greater device density. For instance, Robert Bosch GmbH, an industrial technology conglomerate, collaborated with Nokia and launched a new private 5G network at its lead Industry 4.0 plant in Stuttgart-Feuerbach, Germany, in November 2020.

The rising focus of businesses on reducing the environmental impact and carbon footprint of their operations could create growth avenues for renewable energy-powered telecom power systems in the future. The global telecom power system market can benefit from renewable power by allowing businesses to reduce operational costs while also meeting carbon emission targets significantly.

Several regulatory bodies worldwide are favoring the establishment of hybrid power plants to ensure the viability of power systems in locations with more consumption requirements. For instance, directives issued by the Department of Telecommunication (DoT), India, recommended that 33% of the telecom towers in India’s urban areas and 75% of telecom towers in its rural areas be hybrid-powered by 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions imposed by the governments of various countries compelled a large share of the global population to spend more time working remotely from their homes. This led to a sudden increase in data consumption and a significant rise in demand for faster internet, overloading the existing telecom infrastructure and boosting the demand for advanced telecom power systems. Leading telecom service providers are leveraging advanced telecom power systems to maintain a continuous power supply without any outages and fluctuations in the IT sector.

Power Source Insights

The diesel-battery segment held the largest revenue share of 43.1% in 2022. This power system helps reduce carbon emissions and needs lower capital investment. Consequently, these power sources are majorly preferred in developing countries, including Mexico, Brazil, and India. Telecom operators in these countries are increasingly employing diesel-battery solutions to charge telecom towers as an economically feasible option. The diesel-wind segment is expected to foresee significant growth over the forecast period owing to the installation of new plants, long-term contracts, and priority access to the grids.

Global Telecom Power Systems Market share and size, 2022

The diesel-solar segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 14.3% through 2030. This can be attributed to the rising demand for hybrid energy sources with a low operational cost. Diesel-solar systems combine solar power from a photovoltaic system with a diesel energy source. These systems are reliable and help reduce maintenance, and operational & logistics costs by minimizing fuel consumption and diesel runtime. Hybrid power sources are gaining popularity due to the rising need for reducing carbon footprint and boosting the adoption of green telecom infrastructure over the forecast period.

Product Type Insights

The DC power systems segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 62.7% in 2022 and is expected to further expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. In Direct Current (DC) power systems, a rectifier converts the Alternating Current (AC) to DC and provides the required power to charge the batteries. DC power systems also control and monitor the power being sourced to the equipment, retain accurate voltage, and activate alarms when required.

DC power systems have a wide range of applications in areas such as telecommunication systems, data centers, electric vehicles, aircraft, commercial buildings, and residential homes, among others. DC distribution systems in data centers and telecommunication systems utilize low-voltage 48 VDC systems, thereby enhancing the efficiency, flexibility, and reliability, and reducing the cost of the systems.

The digital electricity segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. The evolution of digital electricity in recent years has offered performance improvements that were earlier not achievable. Digital electricity, also known as switching power supply, comprises smart meters that manage and record electricity and performance of electronic equipment. It also offers accurate & detailed digital algorithms on power usage in real-time or at scheduled intervals. As per the U.S. Department of Energy, over 94.8 million smart meters were installed in the U.S. in 2019.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific held the largest revenue share of 35.7% in 2022 in the market. Furthermore, the region is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the rapid digital transformation of several industries in developing countries of the region, offering a promising growth opportunity for telecom operators to create a sustainable ecosystem.

Telecom Power Systems Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Moreover, telecom service providers are focusing on expanding telecommunication networks to meet the growing cellular subscriber base in the region. Asia Pacific has accounted for the highest number of smartphone users over the past few years. This development has led to an increased deployment of telecom towers in rural and remote locations in this region.

North America is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to the robust and consistent regional network connectivity. This region has been one of the early adopters of several innovative developments and telecommunication technologies, owing to the high penetration rate of mobile devices and 4G-LTE networks.

The rising demand to commercialize 5G networks in the U.S. is encouraging telecom companies to develop advanced telecom infrastructure and related equipment. For instance, according to 5G Americas, a wireless industry trade association that facilitates the transformation of LTE networks, the LTE penetration rate was 130.0% for the U.S. in the third quarter of 2019. Thus, the rapid adoption of digital electricity solutions and smart devices is supporting the growth prospects of the regional market.

Grid Type Insights

The on-grid segment accounted for the largest revenue share of around 41.7% in 2022 in the telecom power systems market. An on-grid system is a power generation system connected to the utility grid. The electricity generated by the system is transmitted to the grid, from where it is utilized to run multiple appliances. These grid systems are the simplest, most cost-effective to install, and, most likely, pay for themselves by compensating utility bills in a span of 3 to 8 years.

The bad grid segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 13.5% over the forecast period. This demand can be attributed to the expansion of telecom networks in rural areas in several countries, owing to a rise in the mobile subscriber base and investments by tower companies to achieve universal coverage. Most of the population in developing countries resides in rural areas that lack telecommunication networks and electricity. According to ‘Our World In Data,’ around 13.0% of the global population does not have access to grid-based electricity.
