MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, February 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Small data centers account for the largest share of the revenue pie, registering $1.83 billion in 2010 and a likely $2.76 billion in 2017
The increasing use of software as a service (SaaS), online streaming media, online gaming, and high-performance computing is expected to restore health to the data center uninterrupted power supply (UPS) market. While the small data center market has been the cash cow of the market, medium and large data centers will expand their revenue shares as organizations grow and scale up their equipment.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan's (http://www.powersupplies.frost.com) World Data Center UPS Market research finds that the market earned revenues of $3.01 billion in 2010 and estimates this to reach $4.55 billion in 2017.

The market also received a fillip from the eager acceptance of cloud servers, as they pack more power into smaller spaces. Owing to this heightened demand for cloud computing, manufacturers are gearing up to provide data center UPS with higher efficiency, lower total cost of ownership, and the opportunity to invest in developing reliable technology.
"For instance, blade servers are a highly space-efficient alternative to conventional rack servers; however they have huge power requirements and dissipate a lot of heat," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst Anu Elizabeth Cherian. "This creates a need for UPS systems that can protect high-power density equipment."
As a market limping back to normalcy from the downturn, the data center UPS market has had to deal with the typical issues of slow technological advances. Little product differentiation and intense competition have considerably pegged back the potential of the market.
Additionally, a plethora of supply issues due to the slowing of the semiconductor market had thrown up numerous challenges. Manufacturers are looking to assuage this issue by creating multiple supply chains to preempt unexpected bottlenecks in the future.
"The market can achieve sustained growth by maintaining exemplary customer relationships as well as greater product efficiency and reliability," said Cherian. "Innovation combined with market consolidation is likely to be the best way forward for this mature market."
