Chinese UPS maker KSTAR has been ranked by market intelligence firm Omdia as the number four supplier of modular UPS in Asia by market share for 2020 in its recent Modular UPS Hardware Market Tracker 2020 report.
Compared with the traditional UPS, modular UPS has obvious advantages: reducing MTTR, internal system redundancy, a smaller physical footprint, and scalability. Buyers of industrial uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and on-premises data center operators are increasingly adopting this kind of UPS, which are forecast to accelerate modular UPS market growth in the post-COVID-19 world starting in 2021, said the report.
“We have seen strong growth in demand for MODULAR UPSs as customers realized the benefits of scalability, cost-efficiency and simple O&M that they provide. This year, we have gained market share growth despite challenging conditions market-wide. Kstar's path-breaking technology places it at the forefront of the modular UPS industry.” said MR Li, Head of International Sales (Asia).
Up to now, Kstar modular UPS found wide applications across global industries including telecom, banking, government, and, etc. Its strong R&D team combined with 27 years experiences in the field provides it with a unique edge in the market.
“Rising energy costs, intense environmental restrictions, and higher power densities are the pain points of the data center industry, Kstar modular UPS were born to manage these problems. With a footprint of just 0.5 m², the UPSs can save valuable floor space and with 96.5% efficiency, they are able to improve energy utilization thereby reducing energy costs. They can also save labor costs as the maintenance time can be reduced to 5 minutes. These benefits all perfectly match the requirements of data centers in the digital era. ” Rayo, the pre-sales engineer of Kstar UPS, said.
Although COVID-19 spurs modular UPS revenue decline by 6% in 2020, it followed by a strong period of growth thereafter. According to the report, the global modular UPS hardware market hit $993 million in 2020 and is forecast to reach $1.35 billion by 2024.
