The global modular uninterruptible power supply market size was valued at USD 1.32 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 1.41 billion in 2022 to USD 2.60 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with modular uninterruptible power supply experiencing lower-than-anticipated across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global modular uninterruptible power supply market exhibited a decline of -5.9% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

The growing demand for zero power downtime drives industry expansion. This factor increases the dependence on continuous power supplies and reliability. A stable and reliable power source is required in the event of a power outage or loss of primary energy.

Modular Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) offers flexible and redundant power protection as the modular concept gives one the flexibility to adjust the performance of the UPS to meet one’s power needs. Individual modules are hot-swappable and connected modules are automatically recognized. The system can be upgraded within a few minutes while running. Load distribution is automated within all system modules, enabling modular (n + x) redundancy, and can also be used to increase the load. The "n" represents the space filled with the battery and the "x" represents the remaining space. The above factors and benefits are the main factors driving the growth of this market.


Supply Chain Disruptions and Manufacturing Delays of Modular UPS Hampered Market Progress During the Pandemic

Due to the global blockade, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought business continuity challenges to various industries such as construction, real estate, IT, healthcare, and manufacturing. It affects the supply chain, such as import/export control, according to the policies of local governments and the impact on future industries. This factor is negatively impacting the growth rate of the market.

The demand for UPS systems from enterprises is estimated to be negative throughout 2020, particularly in energy, retail, transportation, IT, and government sectors. COVID-19 is expected to impact the market growth significantly. The modular uninterruptible power supply market analysis faces challenges due to supply chain disruptions and logistics issues during COVID-19.

Following the pandemic, the market demand is expected to be positively impacted by increased digitization as manufacturers integrate new technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and analytics, and AI and machine learning into their production facilities throughout their operations.

Growing Dependence on Data Centers May Foster Market Growth

Companies in all industries are experiencing demand for cloud computing, hyperscale data centers, and extensive colocation facilities. They started using digital transformation. For example, in May 2020, Microsoft opened its first data center in New Zealand to help businesses build digital capabilities. Building a new data center is expected to increase the demand for modular systems in New Zealand. In recent years, hyperscalers and large colocation providers have rapidly expanded their data center space to increase revenue.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, despite a decline in enterprise data center infrastructure, there has been growth in hyper scale data center infrastructure, surging the demand for high-end modular uninterruptible power supply systems that can provide scalable and reliable backup power. It is one way to compensate for the loss caused by the loss of primary power. It is possible to use an online UPS to handle various power supply issues without interrupting the overall operation. Several market players are launching affordable, high-quality power technologies to help businesses manage their operations.


Increasing Demand for Reliable and Zero Power Downtime to Fuel Market Growth

Enterprises from all sectors are undergoing digitalization which has led to the reliance on electronic devices to access and collect information about their business processes, thus increasing dependency on reliable and continuous power supplies. If there is power loss owing to power failure or loss, the enterprises cannot run business processes; subsequently, there must be an assured and reliable power supply to overcome those issues. An UPS provides continuity and reliability during power outages, saving ongoing effort and protecting the hardware. Despite the high demand in the IT industry, microprocessor and PC-based systems are used in many industrial processes. They are fragile and sensitive to power outages. It can store work in progress, protect industry hardware, and ensure continuity and reliability during power outages. A power outage that lasts just a few seconds can disrupt industrial processes and cause significant economic losses. Therefore, most industries are beginning to adopt advanced and modular UPS systems.

Growing Investments in Data Centers and Round the Clock Network Usage

In the current market scenario, market is driven primarily by the least visible but most critical components of modern information technology and communication infrastructure. This factor includes data centers, which often require 100% uptime. Demand for modular uninterruptible power supplies is driven primarily by the increasing number of new data centers and lower ownership costs. A significant move toward cloud computing could create data storage and security requirements. These data centers often require continuous power and service, thus increasing the global demand for modular UPS in data centers.

An easy-to-implement and highly scalable model also drives the market. The system can be upgraded within just a few minutes while running. The load distribution is automated within all system modules, providing modular (n+x) redundancy that can also be used for load expansion where "n" indicates the space filled with the battery and "x" indicates the remaining space.


High Installation and Maintenance Cost May Hamper Market Growth

The key restraint for the global market is the high capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) required for modular UPS systems. CAPEX includes purchasing large cabinets, modular systems, and monitoring software. Modular systems require large cabinets to stock modules that allow expansion, so the price of these systems is higher than that of standalone units. Therefore, these systems should be designed to meet the power needs of your business to maximize your business profits. Once the battery is installed, the cost of regular battery maintenance becomes an additional expense for the consumer, negatively impacting the market's growth. Like all electrical units, this system requires regular maintenance. Additionally, there is always a risk during repairs if a service person touches its batteries while the system runs. Therefore, enterprises are occasionally hesitant to opt for modular UPS systems.
