Top 7 Vendors in the Global Data Center Rack PDU Market from 2017-2021: Technavio

Technavio has published a new report on the global data center rack PDU market from 2017-2021.

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recent global data center rack PDU market report until 2021. This research report also lists 20 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global data center rack power distribution unit (PDU) market is expected to be valued at USD 1.93 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of almost 7% through the forecast period. The Americas dominate this market, occupying over 49% of the total share.

Increased demand for data centers is the main driving force behind the growth of this market. Increased use of cloud computing and big data analytics has fueled this demand, which is, in turn, driving the demand for data center rack PDUs. Other key drivers expected to impact this market through the forecast period are the growing need for redundant and reliable power solutions and rising requirement for power monitoring abilities,” says Abhishek Sharma, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for data center research.

Competitive vendor landscape

Vendors in the market offer several types of PDUs with features like real-time digital monitoring, remote monitoring and management, and power scaling. Since vendors cannot compete much in terms of pricing, they are involved in extending warranty periods to increase market penetration of their product.

Intelligent PDUs are expected to be the most popular product during the forecast period, as they aid in reducing power wastage in data centers. Vendors are likely to reduce the average selling price of these PDUs to increase their adoption. Additionally, vendors have started providing PDUs with primary and secondary power supplies, where the PDU begins to supply power through a secondary socket in case of failure of the primary socket. Vendors who offer such distinguishing offerings are likely to flourish in this market.
