While the Asia Pacific commercial uninterruptible power supply (UPS) market is expected to exhibit discouraging growth in the short term with the global economic turmoil clouding market prospects, the outlook for the medium and long term looks encouraging with resistive areas such as the energy sector waiting to be tapped. Infrastructure development and expanding population have unleashed an ever-increasing demand for power, making the introduction of power grids highly necessary.
Higher technical expertise in energy storage systems also paves the way for high-capacity UPS growth in the long run. In Japan, wind power is gaining traction as the country eases its dependence on oil and gas. Among end-use sectors, the IT/ITEs and financial sectors are expected to rebound eventually, providing a fresh impetus for the UPS market.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (powersupplies.frost.com), Asia Pacific Commercial Uninterruptible Power Supply Market, finds that the market earned revenues of over $1.60 billion in 2008 and estimates this to reach $2.12 billion in 2015.
"The constant concern over reliability and lack of power quality has always been driving the Asia Pacific commercial UPS market," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Teoh Chew Yew. "As IT managers are aware of and emphasize virtualization, there is a growing adoption of such technology."
The market is fiercely competitive, particularly in East Asia. Numerous participants are in the fray and considering the innumerable options to choose from, end users have become highly price sensitive and discerning. The top five market participants held sway over the market, controlling over 57.4 percent of the total Asia Pacific commercial UPS market in 2008. The influx of products from China and Taiwan have exerted pricing pressure on products and services, constraining the profit margins, particularly in the small UPS segment.
Thus, innovation and continuous product development are the critical to success in the commercial UPS market. As electronic devices become increasingly complex, power quality assumes greater significance and UPS market participants are striving to get the cutting edge. For instance, to obtain smaller footprint, product development engineers are under pressure to design compact UPS models with minimal R&D budget and manufacturing cost. For online UPS, manufacturers and clients must collaborate to deliver customised solutions or products for niche applications.
"Going forward, the green approach is a surefire route to advance business growth in the commercial UPS market," adds Teoh. "Participants must go the extra mile to educate and create awareness in the market as this will serve to create a more receptive response for the highly efficient 'green' products in the commercial UPS market."
