Global Data Center Rack PDU Market 2017-2021

Global Data Center Rack PDU Market 2017-2021

About Data Center Rack Power Distribution Unit

In a data center environment, a rack PDU is used to supply power to a server rack. Rack-mounted PDUs are available in different sizes and configurations. These traits depend on the type of connection and voltage each unit requires to function. PDUs are classified based on functionalities, including power filtering, remote monitoring, control by local area network (LAN) or simple network management protocol (SNMP), and intelligent load balancing. They are easy to install, configure, and manage.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global data center rack power distribution unit market to grow at a CAGR of 6.78% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Data Center Rack Power Distribution Unit Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global data center rack power distribution unit market: CyberPower Systems, Eaton, Vertiv, Legrand (Raritan), Schneider Electric, Server Technology, and Tripp Lite.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Black Box, Canovate, Chatsworth Products, Cisco, Conteg, Delta Power Solutions, Emcor (Crenlo), Enlogic (CIS Global), Fuji Electric, Geist Global, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Leviton, Methode Electronics, Minkels, Nlyte Software, Panduit, Racktivity, Rittal, Siemens, and TSL Products.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is use of DC power in data center. Powering of data centers using DC is still in its nascent stage. It is difficult for existing data center operators to operate on DC without proven efficiency in long-term operations. However, the use of AC power is more common in data centers. IT infrastructure that currently runs on DC power function by converting AC to DC. Solar panels also produce DC power.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increased demand for data centers. The increased use of technologies such as cloud computing and big data analytics has fueled the demand for data centers worldwide. Therefore, the number of data centers has increased considerably. This, in turn, is fueling the adoption of racks and rack PDU products.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is rise in complexity of data center designs. Designing a data center is a complex task. During the designing process, there are factors such as the present IT load and future loads that are critical for successful operations for a period of around 5-10 years. The wiring architecture of PDUs and IT infrastructure inside a rack are important. With increased operational requirements, the number of IT infrastructure equipped inside a single rack has increased. These installations will lead to the complexity of the wiring infrastructure.
