The increasing construction of hyperscale data centers is boosting the demand for UPS that helps to minimize downtime caused due to equipment failure by power surges. A hyperscale data center requires high-quality energy management solutions to reduce the Power Usage Efficiency (PUE) ratio. These data centers require a considerable amount of power for peak data-intensive processes, driving the demand for UPS.
The COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on the economic conditions of the U.S. and Canada in 2020. The temporary closure of industrial plants in the region adversely impacted the UPS industry in the first half of 2020 owing to supply chain disruptions and limited availability of electronic components used to manufacture UPS. The industry regained traction in the second half of 2020 with the gradual resumption of manufacturing activities. The high penetration of technologies, such as e-commerce, e-learning, online banking, and video on-demand, resulted in high data traffic in 2020 and 2021, encouraging companies to offer high-quality power management solutions for data centers.
The online UPS market is expanding in North America as it delivers continuous AC power to equipment and protects it from virtually all power disturbances due to blackouts, brownouts, sags, and surges. Several market players are providing inexpensive and high-quality power technology solutions with frequency regulations.
It is essential for use with backup generator systems to protect from power variations. For instance, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. offers the UPS2000-G UPS that safely supplies AC power in the capacity range of 1 kVA to 20 kVA. Data centers, big branch offices, and sales networks employ the online, double conversion power system with rack & tower installation capabilities.
The expanding healthcare sector of North America is supporting the UPS market growth as it helps to provide backup power to critical equipment. The region has a strong presence of renowned medical institutions such as the Cleveland Clinic, Massachusetts General Hospital, Mayo Clinic – Rochester, and Toronto General - University Health Network. The hospital facilities rely heavily on UPS systems to improve the reliability & efficiency of an electrical system used to offer critical care services.
The UPS market in North America is observing a significant surge in demand for reliable power solutions that can support large enterprises with different power range modules. UPSs are designed to support high-scale power requirements and employ an integrated configuration of Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs), fuses, and drive circuits to improve transmission efficiency. This helps to support critical high-density computing environments of large enterprises that use cloud services.
Manufacturers offer advanced UPS technology for cloud computing to enable the large-scale enterprises to achieve optimum level of performance. It helps the large-scale enterprises to avoid the consequences of downtime, prevent implementation delays, and minimize wasted power consumption.
Prominent players operating in the North America UPS market include ABB Ltd., Toshiba Corporation, Ablerex Electronics Co. Ltd., Eaton Corporation, Inc., Emerson Electric Co., ENERSYS, Siemens AG, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Legrand S.A., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Schneider Electric SE, SOCOMEC Group S.A., SolarEdge Solution (Gamatronic), and Vertiv Co. The companies are focusing on expanding their footprint by introducing new UPS solutions with a reduced footprint.
