IT Needs Continue To Boost UPS Fortunes

12/18/2006


Uninterruptible power supply manufacturers are among the few winners in today's uncertain electricity-supply environment according to a new report that sees UPS producers' annual revenues rising 38% by 2012. Technology advances are driving rising electricity demands, which, in turn, are stressing current generation, transmission and distribution infrastructures—making technology users even more dependent on UPS protection, report authors state.

The report, "North American Three-Phase UPS Market," from industry analysts at Frost & Sullivan, notes that UPS companies are, in many cases, acting as system integrators and even providing outsourced power-quality management services to corporate customers. Products are being developed for every network-infrastructure element, from cooling systems to server racks, and monitoring capabilities are being enhanced.

Increasing technology adoption also is driving growth, especially in such sectors as the healthcare market, where medical professionals are turning to computers and other digital devices to both boost efficiency and meet new regulatory requirements.
