A power distribution unit (PDU) is a device fitted with multiple outputs designed to distribute electric power, especially to racks of computers and networking equipment located within a datacenter. The advanced version of a PDU is considered as an intelligent PDU, which provides real-time power distribution information; this helps in controlling, monitoring, and troubleshooting any issue pertaining to power management. Intelligent PDUs are widely used in datacenters as the number of connected devices in datacenters is high. The intelligent PDU market was valued at USD 1.24 Billion in 2017 and is likely to reach USD 2.01 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.4% between 2017 and 2023. The increasing demand for high-power capacities in high-power density environments is one of the major factors boosting the growth of the intelligent PDU market.
