The “Data Center Generator Market – Global Outlook and Forecast 2018-2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global data center generator market is estimated to reach revenues of around $5 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of more than 5% during 2017-2023.
The installation of generators with intelligent control systems with real-time monitoring software that can predict maintenance requirements, component failures, and automatic switchovers for uninterrupted operations is driving the global market. The increasing mega data center construction facilities with higher power capacities will lead to the adoption of high-capacity systems in the market.
The global data center generator marketis driven by the presence of leading vendors such as MTU, Kohler (SDMO), Euro-Diesel, General Power Systems, and Himoinsa offering innovative systems. The growing concerns about carbon emissions are leading to the launch of eco-friendly generators such as natural generators and bi-fuel generators in the global market. The market research report provides in-depth market analysis and segmental analysis of the global data center generator market by generator capacity, systems, tier standards, and geography.
The report considers the present scenario of the global data center generator market and its market dynamics for the period 2018-2023. It covers a detailed overview of various market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The study covers both the demand and supply sides of the market. It also profiles and analyzes the leading companies and various other prominent companies operating in the market.
Data Center Generator Market- Dynamics
Modular data center development comprising containerized and performance optimized data center (POD) facilities are being offered by multiple market vendors on a standalone basis or in partnership with other providers. Modular data center development is especially being used among organizations with a stringent budget.Modular deployment with less than 10 racks is being carried out by providers in developing countries such as Latin America, Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East and Africa.
Data center automation identifies the maintenance requirements of power infrastructure to avoid operational failure. For example, generators are monitored for maintenance to avoid backup power failure during outages.
The reduction in power consumption and wastage in modern data centers is achieved through end-to-end monitoring and automation of facilities. Most of the modern power infrastructure is supplied along with controls for direct and remote monitoring of facilities. Most of the power infrastructure vendors are heavily investing in software solutions that monitorthe power infrastructures such as Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare, Vertiv’s Trellis, and ABB’s Ability automation platforms.
DRUPS is popular because of its a flywheel or battery-powered UPS along with a diesel generator. DRUPS is still witnessing low adoption as compared to traditional UPS systems and generators. However, its adoption is expected to grow throughout the forecast period, especially among data centers that use traditional UPS systems and thereby incur high operational costs. Some of the recent deployments of DRUPS was by Singtel in Singapore and NextDC in Australia.
Data Center Generator Market- Segmentation
This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the market by generator capacity, systems, tier standards, and geography.The global data center generator market by generator capacity is classified into < 1 MW, 1MW – 2MW, and >2MW. >2MW dominated more than half of the total market share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The multiple installations of 2.25 MW and 2.5 MW capacity generators identified across the globe in 2017 are driving the growth of this segment in the global market. The increasing deployment of mega facilities by hyperscale facilities operators is contributing to the growing revenues in this market segment.
The market vendors are currently offering multiple generator sets with a capacity of < 1 MW. However, the use of these systems is highly dependent on the power consumed by data centers. Similar to UPS systems, generators with a power capacity of < 1 MW are mostly adopted in modular data center deployments.
The systems segment in the global data center generator market is divided into generators and DRUPS systems. DRUPS systems are the fastest growing segment in the global market, at a CAGR of approximately 7% during the forecast period. The increasing use of DRUPS systems eliminates the use of separate UPS and generator systems and increases the overall efficiency of the facilities by 96% in the global market. These systems use flywheel UPS technology overcoming the issues incurred for using VRLA batteries in UPS systems in the market.
Data center operators are highly reliable on diesel generator to provide backup power or to adopt as stand-by power sources. However, the use of these generators in highly populated areas is becoming costlyand a non-sustainable solution. In addition, space taken by diesel generator was also high. Continuous innovations by vendors have brought the availability of modular systems that reduce the installation space by up to 20%.
The global data center generator market by tier standards is segmented into Tier I & II, Tier III, and Tier IV. Tier III segment occupied the largest market share in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The new facilities of Tier III standards are designed with a minimum of N+1 redundancy and can be reconfigured with up to 2N+1 redundancy. The changes in the redundancyare done as per consumer requirements and allow flexibility in designs in the global market.
The 80% occupancy rate of facilities with Tier III standards will encourage operators to invest in these designs in the market over the next few years.Tier IV data centers are also being developed as modular facilities like Switch’s data center in Nevada. These facilities generate more revenue for the market, with focused investment on highly efficient and scalable generator systems. There are few Tier IV facilities operated by providers such as Facebook are involved in installation of fewer gensets.
Data Center Generator Market- Geography
The geographical segment in the global data center generator market is divided into APAC, Americas, and EMEA. The APAC is the fastest growing region in the global market, at a CAGR of more than 8% during the forecast period. The increasing investments by international and regional facility operators and the growing adoption of public cloud and hybrid cloud services are the major factors attributing to the growth of the APAC region in the global market. AWS, Microsoft, Google, Baidu, Alibaba, and Apple are the largest investors in the APAC market.
In Western Europe, the investment is higher in the UK, Germany, Ireland, France, and the Netherlands. In the Nordic region, most of the investment is identified in Denmark and Sweden.The data center market in Western Europe witnessed significant investments in 2017, with multiple projects carried out by colocation, cloud, telecommunication, and internet service providers in the UK, Germany, France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal, and Austria.
