DUBLIN, May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Generator Market in Datacentre 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global generator market in data centers to grow at a CAGR of 10.8% during the period 2016-2020.
Generators convert mechanical energy into electric energy. The source of mechanical energy can vary from internal combustion engine, hand crank, and compressed air, to reciprocating steam engine. Internal combustion engines use diesel, gasoline, propane gas, and natural gas to produce mechanical energy; this energy is converted into electric energy with the help of gensets.
An emerging trend in this market is the construction of green data centers. Increase in carbon emissions and consumption of electricity through data centers worldwide is creating awareness among enterprises toward the construction of green data center facilities. These facilities help in the operation of energy-efficient IT power and cooling infrastructure, thus reducing electricity consumption and carbon footprint. Advanced technologies and strategies are implemented in a data center to improve its performance. Concepts such as free cooling, use of renewable energy sources, consolidation, and waste recycling are some of the methods implemented in green data centers. Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook are either operating or in the process of constructing green data center facilities. Therefore, the requirement for advanced power management solutions for data centers aids in operating green data center facilities.
According to the report, a key growth driver for the global generator market is the increase in power outages. Enterprises require data centers to support operations and address growing business requirements on a local and global scale. Several data centers are already operational worldwide; they are equipped with advanced IT and cooling infrastructure, and although advanced equipment consumes less power than older equipment, growing operational requirements mandate the installation of additional equipment. Therefore, overall power consumption is still relatively high. In the US, data centers consume roughly 2% of the overall electricity generated in the country. This situation is predicted to expand worldwide, even in countries where electricity production is low or erratic.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is an increase in carbon emissions due to more data centers being constructed globally.
