How Lithium-ion UPS Systems play a Crucial Role in Global Data Center UPS Market?


Arizton’s recent market research report on the global data center UPS market provides comprehensive industry analysis, trend forecasts, and competitive analysis. The research study segments the market by systems (VRLA UPS, flywheel UPS, and lithium-ion UPS), by system capacity (<=500 kVA, 500 kVA- 1000 kVA, and >1000 kVA), by tier standards (Tier I & II, Tier III, and Tier IV), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

The global data center UPS market is estimated to reach revenues of approximately $5 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 5% during 2018-2024.

The amount of power fluctuations caused by the instability of grid connectivity makes the UPS systems a critical component needed for continuous operations and preventing infrastructure failures.

The global data center UPS market is divided into four major segments that include systems, system capacity, tier standards, and geography.

Lithium-ion UPS systems to grow at the fastest CAGR in the global data center UPS market during the forecast period

Lithium-ion batteries are the most commonly used energy storage component in mobile phones. The continuous innovations by vendors have brought the applicability of these systems in energy consuming industry applications like data centers. Factors such as reduced installation space, lesser weight, faster-charging cycle, high capacity support and service life, varied operational temperature, low OPEX, limited carbon emissions, and reduced maintenance has led to the exponential growth of lithium-ion UPS systems in the market over the past two years.

The average time taken for lithium-ion batteries to reach 80% of its maximum capacity is around 15 years compared to the five-year cycle for VRLA-battery-based UPS systems. The increasing adoption of lithium-ion UPS systems by hyperscale data center operators with facilities consuming over 20 MW of IT power capacity will play a major role in reducing the cost of these systems. Lithium-ion UPS systems have the potential to reduce the market share of VRLA batteries, bringing it to a negative growth rate by 2021.
