Data Center UPS Market – Dynamics
The adoption of lithium-ion UPS systems is growing among colocation providers owing to the increasing CAPEX involved in operating VRLA-powered UPS Systems. Few colocations have installed flywheel UPS. However, the majority have opted for DRUPS systems with flywheel technology. The adoption of fuel cell is a challenge to the market. It is because this installation would not require UPS systems, generators, and other power infrastructure, including local grid supply. The investment in fuel cells by colocation providers can be witnessed across countries or regions where the power cost is more than $12 cents per kWh. Ineffective in operations of VRLA-based UPS systems has brought multiple innovations in the market. In the past three years, prominent vendors operating in the UPS market started providing lithium-ion UPS systems as an effective alternative to VRLA battery systems. In 2018, the market witnessed entry of Nickel-Zinc UPS systems by ZincFive, based in the US and operating in China. According to ZincFive, Nickel-Zinc Battery are very effective than VRLA based systems and much safer compared to lithium-ion battery.Data center automation identifies the maintenance requirements of power infrastructure to avoid operational failure. For example, UPS batteries are monitored for maintenance to avoid backup power failure during outages. The reduction in power consumption and wastage in modern data centers is achieved through end-to-end monitoring and automation of facilities.
Data Center UPS Market – Segmentation
This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the market by systems, system capacity, tier standard, and geography. The global data center UPS market by systems is segmented into VRLA UPS, flywheel UPS, and lithium-ion UPS. VRLA UPS dominated the global market share in 2018. These battery systems find applications in the data center environment and other major industries across the global market. These batteries are cost-effective solutions in facilities environment with an average life cycle of 5 years from the time of installation. Factors such as reduced installation space, less weight, faster-charging cycle, high capacity support and service life, varied operational temperature, low OPEX, limit carbon emission, and reduced maintenance is driving the demand for lithium-ion systems in the global data center UPS market.
The system capacity segment in the global data center UPS market is classified into <=500 kVA, 500 kVA- 1000 kVA, and >1000 kVA. The >1,000 kVA systems are the fastest growing segment in the global market, at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The increasing number of facility operators offering a combination of systems of varied capacity to support a single facility or data hall as per the customer needs is fueling the growth of this segment in the global market. Facebook and Google use the open compute project (OCP) rack design that uses 48V DC UPS battery cabinet to achieve savings of up to 20%, where the only conversion is DC to DC to sub-components of servers such as CPUs, RAM, and hard disks in the market. The use of 500–1,000 kVA systems in the global data center UPS market will dominate during the forecast period.
The global data center UPS market by tier standard categorized into Tier I & II, Tier III, and Tier IV. The Tier III segment occupied the largest market share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of approximately 4% during the forecast period. The growing need for redundant components to support mission-critical applications across facilities is fueling the growth of this segment in the global market.The redundancy of Tier II datacenters is mostly N+1 for UPS infrastructure which is widely adopted in the global market. Hyperscale developers such as Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, and Google are constructing facilities of Tier IV standards and fueling demand in the global data center UPS market.
