The Global Data Center Rack Power Distribution Unit market is to grow at a CAGR of 13.38 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing deployment of data centers. The Global Data Center Rack Power Distribution Unit market has also been witnessing the evolution of alternating phased power. However, the declining investments due to macro-economic conditions could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Traditional three-phase power distribution divides power into multiple branches within the rack PDU. However, alternating phased power alternates each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of per branch basis. In this PDU system, power wiring in simplified as power cords are not required to be laid through the size of the vertical PDU to reach distinct branches. Moreover, servers can be plugged in from the bottom to the top of the rack with lesser risk by installers. Hence, alternating phased power provides noticeable benefits such as shortened cabling, better airflow, improved load balancing, and higher efficiencies.
Among the numerous growth drivers in the Global Data Center Rack PDU market, increasing deployment of data centers is the major growth driver. Growing business expansion and increasing loads from end-users are leading enterprises to invest in expansion of their data center facilities. With plans for enlarging their businesses, enterprises are expanding their data center capacities with additional servers and networking equipment.
One of the main challenges is declining investments due to macroeconomic conditions. During 2012, the market was affected by increasing uncertainties in global economic conditions. This negatively affected future investments by enterprises in data center solutions. Projects that require high-capacity power systems are being put on hold and operational costs are being reduced considerably by using PDU optimization techniques.
The key vendors dominating this market space are APC Corp., CyberPower Systems Inc., Eaton Corp., Emerson Network Power, Raritan Inc., and Server Technology Inc.
The other vendors mentioned are AFCO Systems, Enlogic Systems LLC, Geist Ltd., Hewlett-Packard Co., and Racktivity NV.
