Global outlook of the data center rack PDU market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global data center rack power distribution unit (PDU) market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of almost 7% by 2021. This industry research report identifies the growing need for redundant and reliable power solutions to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The recent years have witnessed a rise in the number of data centers suffering power outages that results in the disruption of business operations. This has induced operators to equip their data centers with redundant power units to ensure higher availability. Intelligent PDUs regulate the voltage based on the environment of a data center and also provide real-time information about the input and output power of an IT infrastructure. Moreover, these PDUs also enable better power management during equipment failures, which will also aid in boosting their adoption among modern data centers.

With a rapid increase in power usage, organizations will start focusing on acquiring solutions that will help manage power consumption and increase energy efficiency. To ensure the better usage of available resources and control power consumption, PDU manufacturers have already started providing solutions equipped with monitoring capabilities. In addition to decreasing power usage and increasing the efficiency of a data center, these solutions will also reduce an organization's carbon footprint, in turn, boosting the demand for intelligent rack PDUs.

Overview of the global CFD market in the automotive industry

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global CFD market in the automotive industry to grow at a CAGR of almost 10% by 2021. At present, the automotive manufacturers are undergoing high pressure to minimize the product development cycle. CFD is primarily used in the designing stage of the product development cycle, specifically in the simulation and optimization processes. The designing stage is crucial in the product development lifecycle as it reduces the time and cost of production of automotive products and components. Such advanced characteristics have promptly increased the dependence of several industries on the software to reduce product development cycle time. The effective use of PLM software such as CAD, CFD, and CAM helps minimize product recalls by refining the product design, which will subsequently increase the application of CFD software in the automotive industry.

The automotive industry is witnessing the growing shift towards the adoption of electric vehicles. Several vehicle manufacturers are increasing their investments in the research activities to manufacture fuel-efficient vehicles. They are complying with the set standards and are focusing towards manufacturing cost-effective vehicles. Companies such as General Motors and Ford have increased the

Overview of the global output management software market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global output management software market to grow at a CAGR of close to 3% between 2017 and 2021. The growing requirement to minimize the operational costs in IT departments is a major driving force in the growth of the output management software market. The output management software aids in enhancing the flexibility of the IT department and helping the team to take timely decisions. The IT department can implement decisions speedily, which results in reduced costs and better end-user efficiency. The output management software also makes it convenient to extend the network of the printer with the expansion of the workplaces. The software eliminates the need for additional printing devices and offers services such as pull printing, mobile printing, and auditing functions. It also helps to manage printers from one central location and helps to dispense printing options in the system landscape.

One of the latest trends in the output management software market is the outsourcing of services to the Asian countries. Companies are opting to outsource their output management activities, including the printing process and document management, to Asia. This helps them to focus more on their, such as R&D and product development, rather than spending time and resource on print-related activities.
