Product Overview

Power Distribution Units (PDUs) are devices designed to distribute electricity to various facilities or systems. They are commonly used in commercial buildings, data centres, and industrial settings to efficiently manage and transfer electricity to various connections. PDUs can be of different types catering to various needs and requirements. While Basic PDUs provide power straightforwardly without any advanced features, Metered PDUs help in measuring power consumption. Monitored PDUs provide remote control features to consumers, allowing them to observe and monitor them. Switched PDUs provide consumers with the power to turn the outlets on or off. The choice of PDU depends on specific requirements in accordance with the applications; some may need monitored, while others may require metered connections. Consumers always check the energy efficiency and criticality of connected equipment before purchasing power distribution units.

Power Distribution Unit Market Segmentation

Basic PDUs will keep on dominating the market due to simple usage and wider popularity

Power Distribution Units, based on Type are segmented into Metered, Basic, Monitored, Switched, Intelligent. Basic PDUs lead the market as they are considered cheaper than their alternatives, making them effective for budgetary projects. They are simpler and easier to use due to their plug-and-play experience and lack of complexities compared to monitored or switched PDUs. Basic PDUs are widely used in offices, hospitals, residential buildings, schools, and other environments where monitored or individual outlets are not required, providing a cost-effective option. Many older infrastructures are equipped with basic units, and upgrading them can become costly and may require various wirings. While Basic PDUs dominate the residential and commercial sectors, advanced options are emerging in the market with increased competition and consumer awareness.

Single Phase Units influence the industrial demand due to widespread application

Power Distribution Market based on Phase is segmented into Single and Triple phase. Single phase power distribution units act as a dominant force in this segment contributing to more than 50% of the market demand. The wider application of single-phase units in residential and commercial setups makes them suitable for offices, schools, and hospitals. These units are cheaper than their three-phase counterparts due to their simpler design and wiring system. Single-phase PDUs are easier to install and operate, making them a better option for consumers while providing substantial power supply. They offer substantial power supply capabilities while remaining user-friendly, making them a popular choice for a variety of industries and applications. As the demand for dependable and efficient power distribution grows, single-phase PDUs are set to maintain their market dominance by fulfilling the changing needs of consumers and industries alike.
