This industry research report outlines the growth prospects and segmentation of the global modular UPS market by end-user application (data center, BFSI, telecom, ICT and others) and by power rating (10.1-100 kVA, 100.1-250 kVA, 250.1-500 kVA and 500 kVA and above). It further details the market shares of key regions such as the Americas, EMEA, and APAC. The report also presents a complete analysis of the top vendors operating in the market, including Eaton, Emerson Network Power, and the Schneider-led APC.

Technavio’s market research analysts estimate the global modular UPS market to grow at a CAGR of around 11% between 2016 and 2020. Rise in the development of data center infrastructure is fuelling the demands for modular UPS. These modular systems are easy to install and maintain and are easily adptable compared to the traditional UPS systems.  Currently, the Americas dominate the global market for modular UPS, accounting for 37% of the total market share. However, APAC is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region in the modular UPS market during the forecast period. The wide use of modular UPS by data centers, telecom tower installations, ICT, and healthcare infrastructure is the driving force behind the market in APAC

The new market research report from Technavio provides a breakdown and analysis of the modular UPS segments by technology.

“Modular UPS enhances power supply capacity to the sensitive electronic systems in enterprises, there by preventing loss of data and productivity. It regulates power fluctuations and protects electrical appliances from distorted power failures. Vendors are coming up with light weight UPS with reduced sizes, which can accommodate multiple modules in a single UPS system. Also, the power consumption of this UPS is lower, hence encouraging enterprises to prefer it during power crisis,” says Anju Ajaykumar, Lead Analyst, Heavy Industry, Technavio Research.

Data centers are the major end-users of modular UPS, accounting for 26% of the total market share. Riser in the construction of data center facilities across the globe is the manor reason of this segment’s growth. Increasing need for uninterrupted data access has necessitated the installation of modular UPS among enterprises. The efficient modular UPS adopted in data centers consume less power and require less cooling effort, thus enhancing power savings and equipment efficiency.

The leading vendors in the global modular UPS market include Eaton, Emerson Network Power, and the Schneider-led APC. This market is extremely diverse due to the presence of various international and domestic players offering cost-effective modular UPS. Various private labels are entring this market, hence the existing vendors need to distinguish their product and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition.
