|In the 3Q of 2007 the global UPS market continued its outstanding recent performance with estimated 20% year on year growth over 3Q06. Large three-phase installations continue to drive revenues to record levels and it is anticipated that the global UPS market will break the $7 billion mark in 2007, according to latest analysis from IMS Research. |
“Three-phase growth continues to be the main driver for the global UPS market, but it should noted the Americas showed a significant slowdown in the 3Q for sub-10 kVA UPS, which can be attributed to economic concerns. The sub-10 kVA segment of UPS is a good barometer of IT spending by small-to-medium sized businesses and our analysis show a flat sub-10 kVA market for the Americas from the 3Q of 2006 to the 3Q of 2007” said analyst Michael Markides.
“The UPS market has been experiencing record growth over the past few years, with average yearly growth of almost 20%. It is widely believed within the industry that this surge will continue over the next year or two with the main driver being the installation of what is termed “mega data centers”. It will be interesting to see if the EMEA and Asian markets maintain their current growth levels with the economic uncertainly in the US and the impact of the falling dollar.” added Markides.
