According to recent quarterly tracker results of the global UPS market from IMS Research, year-over-year growth slowed to 5% in Q4 2011 following three consecutive quarters of double digit growth. As part of its ongoing UPS market analysis, IMS Research shows 2011 revenues roughly in line with what was forecast. The year started out relatively strongly, ending with a nearly 12-point gain year-to-date over 2010. However, fourth quarter's sales slumped, which IMS believes is a trend likely to continue rather than be just a seasonal slowdown in the market.
