Organizations focus on the acquisition and management of energy efficiency solutions, due to increasing power consumption. PDU manufacturers provide technologies that monitor power and make better use of resources to manage power consumption. In addition to reducing the use of power and improving the efficiency of the data center, solutions are also expected to reduce the carbon footprint of the organization.

Rack PDUs can provide energy tracking right down to the socket point, if necessary, and can calculate energy usage with ±1 per cent accuracy. This means that users can easily determine exactly where the energy is being used and ensure rogue hardware that consumes more energy than should be quickly identified. Accurate metering also streamlines load balancing and reveals locations where there is a spare power capacity.

Requirements for data centers are increasing, while space and budgets are declining. Due to the fact that data center workers are obligated to be more efficient, they turn to PDUs. A metered PDU offers the possibility to conserve resources at granular level money, staff hours and space, thus enabling employees to focus on more strategic tasks. The cost of regulating the temperature of a data center can be absorbed by the operating budget. Modern hot-air containment solutions help to minimize costs, but lower operating temperatures for legacy rackmount PDUs mean that they can only help a lot.

Based on Product, the market is segmented into Non-intelligent and Intelligent. Based on Intelligent Type, the market is segmented into Metered and Switched. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
