The company netted the total revenues of 625.45 crores, down from 635.19 crores, a small dip of 1.53% over the previous years turnover. This minor dip may be attributed to change of leadership at the top.

(*Numeric UPS is part of Legrand Group. The registered Indian legal entity is known as Novateur Electrical & Digital Systems Pvt. Ltd. which comprises of 3 Brands / Divisions Legrand, Indo-Asian and Numeric*,) but the turnover figures printed are purely of Online & Inline UPS Systems.

APC - Schneider's UPS sales to be around 664 crore.
Vertiv - Liebert revenue dropped is some where around 590 crore. First Emerson tried to spin of as Vertiv, before finally being taken over by PLATINUM EQUITY, A US based equity firm. So fresh operation may start post December.

Eaton's Power Quality revenue is around 154 crore. These figure are just SD's estimates through our own market sources & our  contacts within the company and information coming out of Government agencies.

Here it is worth mentioning that Govt.'s Right to Information policy has come good to evaluate the unknown to a certain extent.

Hitachi Hi-Rel Power Electronics Pvt. Ltd. Gandhi Nagar, Gujarat which went for major re-positioning in the last two financial year has teamed up with Hitachi. And has finally started delivering. This teaming up has worked wonders for the company but not that much in the UPS field but has started emphasizing as the company started giving more emphasis on Drives for which they have set up a huge plant in Sasan, Gujarat. This year Softdisk estimates the company to have netted revenues of 382.70 crores for UPS & SPCUs. Of which 176 crores are thru sales of UPS alone.

Next in the league are the Bangalore based Techser Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd. They were crowned SD's No. 8 Power Electronic Company of the year. The company slipped by one rank over previous year. Company's growth dipped by over 7.0% has been due to the increased competition and non completion of orders in hand, No wonders, if company ends up even higher in the top 10 rankings chart in the coming years, Signals to this effect are already visible. The company netted total revenues of 90.01 crore up from 97.21 crore it had in 2015-16. Of the total revenues of 97.21 crores 83.77 crore came thru sale of online UPS, which makes it the SD's No. 5 Online UPS Manufacturer of the year 2016-17.

Next are the Hykon India Pvt.

Last on list were the Delhi based Uniline Energy Systems netted a turn over of 73.23 crore in 2016-17. The company was crowned SD's No. 10 Power Electronic Company of the year.

Conclusion: The 2016-17 can be termed as a relatively flat year for the SD's Top 10 UPS Companies. Some of the UPS companies grew well above the industry average while other failed to achieve what they had last year, at a time when margins are squeezed. Volume wise there is increase in sales of almost 16.0%. In all 313 companies responded, while only 178 companies ware rated. Softdisk believes slowdown has taken the rosy freshness out of the business, but with GST implemented and Modi Govt. at the centre and lots of FDI already promised, it is going to be good times ahead post UP election.

These rankings are limited to the companies responding to our survey and data provided by them.
