Growth in the UPS market is tied to the performance of telecommunication systems comprising of extensive networked infrastructure of computers. Power management technologies are portended to rule high in the coming years.
An uninterruptible power supply system or UPS system offers continuous power in an acceptable mode to the load, regardless of the input power. The UPS system is increasingly utilized to provide a clean and continuous wave of power to high technology electronic equipments. The concept of power management has evolved with the proliferation of Internet and networking applications and the replacement of electro-mechanical devices by electronic equipment in manufacturing and laboratory sectors. This market dynamic has accentuated demand for UPS systems in recent years. Also, demand for power across the globe is growing over 12% annually, riding on thriving economies. In an extremely competitive environment, characterized by rapidly changing industry demands related to design and development of complex systems, mission critical applications require uninterrupted and reliable source of power supply for their widespread Internet infrastructure. The global consumption of electrical power is projected to leap to 20 trillion kilowatt-hours by 2015.
United States and Europe dominate the worldwide uninterruptible power supply systems market, capturing over 55% of sales for 2006. Asia-Pacific, with a CAGR of over 6.5%, is projected to be the fastest growing regional market over the ten-year analysis period and reach sales of US$1.1 billion by 2009. Less than 5 KVA market represent the leading product segment, accounting for more than 50% of the sales in 2006. Extensive growth in the personal computers market, across consumer and SOHO (Small Office Home Office) segments, has also contributed to the rising demand for UPS equipment. The report offers unequivocal discussions on growth drivers such as expanding Internet and client-server based networks, decentralization of LAN/WAN applications, phenomenal growth in large networks and Internet connectivity, and the need for protecting electronic appliances against unregulated or faulty power supply. The 5.1 KVA to 20 KVA market is set to witness the fastest growth of over 4.5% over the ten-year analysis period. The segment is projected to cross sales of US$1.3 billion by the year 2010. The study throws light on problems related to power supply, and evaluates technological alternatives to UPS systems.
