Europe: The second-largest market for power distribution unit

The rise in the PDU market is influenced by various end-user industries such as networking, telecoms & IT, BFSI, and healthcare. The increase in investments for AI-driven cloud-based data centers results in the vast growth of intelligent PDUs. It also helps in real-time data monitoring and leads to customer growth & expansion. For instance, Huawei introduced the AI-driven data center switches to improve IT network operations. The new switch has 64-core ARM server processor. Thus, AI-driven data centers lead to innovation and create competitive advantages with new business opportunities.

The hot-swap is projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the power distribution unit

The hot-swap segment, by type, is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. A hot-swap power distribution unit has similar features as an automatic transfer switch power distribution unit; however, it can also switch between the power sources in live mode, i.e., keeping the servers and UPS live while switching the power source from UPS to a live wall outlet. This type of power distribution unit offers dual input connections and a manual bypass switch, enabling the replacement of standard plug-in UPS systems for maintenance without disturbing the power supply to the connected server or networking loads. The primary benefit of installing hot-swap power distribution units is that it minimizes the downtime that affects the operational expenses that occur due to scheduled UPS maintenance periods. Companies offering a comprehensive product portfolio for hot-swap power distribution units include Vertiv (US), Tripp Lite (US), Eaton (Ireland), and others.
