Telecom Power System Market in North America to Witness Rise in the Deployment of Small Cell Power Systems

Renewable energy


The telecom power system market in North America was valued at $12 billion in 2015 and is expected to surpass $15 billion by 2020, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on telecom power systems in North America for the forecast period, 2016-2020. This market analysis, under the machine-to-machine (M2M) and connected devices vertical, discusses the major drivers and emerging trends that will influence the growth of the telecom power system market in North America over the next four years. Some of the top vendors listed in this industry analysis include Delta Electronics, Eaton, Emerson Network Power, and GE Industrial Solutions.

The telecom power system market in North America is currently witnessing a rise in the deployment of telecom network infrastructure. Both, telecom towers and data centers together consume more than 70% of the overall energy in the entire telecom industry, on an average. The rising deployment of small cells creates the need for small size power backup. Cellect 600 from Alpha Technologies, for example, integrates battery backup with an AC/DC power supply in a compact, sealed enclosure. The enclosure is specially designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments and offers high-efficiency power conversion, advanced monitoring, and control,” says Abhishek Sharma, a lead analyst at Technavio for machine-to-machine (M2M) and connected devices.

The new industry research report from Technavio analyzes the top three drivers responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

Increased deployment of small cell power systems for LTE

Designing an effective power system for deployment is becoming more imperative with the increased significance of small cells in existing wireless networks. Alpha offers turnkey solutions for DAS and small cell networks with its wide range of products. Telecom tower companies are deploying more number of picocells and femtocells, which have built-in and compact power systems. Eltek (a Delta Group company) offers Chameleon small cells power solutions that minimize the installation, logistics, and the purchasing cost for 4G/LTE operators. The rise in the deployment of small cell sites is creating an upsurge in the demand for power systems that offer a cost-effective solution, easy installation, and operational efficiency.

Regulatory demand for reduced OPEX

Telecom operators in North America face a significant deterioration in the revenues of voice following the reduced usage of voice-based services and declining ARPU that affects their overall profit margins. Furthermore, the influx of OTT players in the telecom sector is posing a threat to telecom operator’s voice revenue. Telecom operators are taking measures to reduce OPEX to enhance their profit margins, while telecom tower operators are moving from the traditional DC power systems to highly efficient hybrid energy solutions. The adoption of hybrid power systems reduces the need for fuel requirements by optimizing the usage of renewable energy resources like solar panels or wind turbines or reusable battery products.

Growing demand for ultra-high-capacity optical networks

Due to IoE, the internet traffic is growing tremendously and has its implications on the telecom broadband infrastructure in fulfilling the capacity requirements. Telecom operators have to invest more in expanding effective and efficient high capacity fiber optic networks that caters to increasing subscriber demand. Optical networks help to achieve more power savings, enabling the efficient use of data transmissions over long distances. It also gives the advantage of having flexibility, high reliability and protection, high speed and convergence.

Some of the other prominent vendors identified in this report are AEG Power Solutions, Alpha, Alstom, Bel Fuse, Benning Power Solutions, C&D Technologies, Cummins Power, Myers Power Products, Pioneer Magnetics, SAFT, Schneider Electric, Shindengen, and ZTE.
