Enterprise Server Market Analysis

The enterprise server market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.56% during the forecast period. The market landscape is expected to witness strong innovations to enhance performance, speed, and memory to support the surge of Big Data, high-performance computing, and business intelligence applications.

  • An enterprise server is a computer server that includes programs required to collectively serve the requirements of an enterprise instead of an individual unit, user, or specific application. An enterprise server provides consolidated connections, a choice of broadcast, TCP/IP, or multicast, as well as user-defined tools for conflation and hibernation, resulting in improved network and desktop performance.
  • The market for enterprise servers is majorly driven by the increased investments in the capacity of hyperscale data centers to reshape the core server market. The server market is also expected to witness a server-refresh cycle, which may favorably impact market growth over the next few years.
  • Furthermore, emerging technologies, such as flash storage, virtualization, and advanced management, may offer new avenues for market growth. New applications (developed to meet specific computing requirements of the enterprises and end users) are also expected to contribute significantly to the growth of the enterprise server market.
  • With the current number of servers, managing data traffic, workload, and computing have been unable to keep up with the snowballing growth in data center traffic. With the increasing server computing capacity and virtualization, multiple workloads, and compute instances per physical server, there is a demand for more data centers to handle this load. This has been a significant factor driving investments in data center infrastructure across the world, significantly contributing to the growth of the enterprise server market.
  • However, the high initial and installation costs related to using enterprise servers are one of the main concerns preventing their wider adoption. High-end corporate servers demand a significant level of technical skill to install and maintain, which is a barrier for the studied market.

Enterprise Server Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Enterprise Server Market according to our research experts:

Rack Optimized Server Type to Witness High Growth

  • A rack server is comparatively smaller and mounted within a rack compared to a tower server. It is designed to be positioned vertically, stacking various electronic devices, such as cooling systems, storage units, network peripherals, batteries, and SAN devices, with servers one over the other.
  • The primary advantage of using a rack server is that a user can stack any required electronic devices with the server, wherein a single rack can contain multiple servers, hence, consuming lesser space, due to which it is now mostly preferred by many organizations across the world.
  • Hyperscale data center adoption by cloud service providers is expected to drive the market considerably over the forecast period. Moreover, the demand for rack-optimized servers is rapidly increasing, compelling the industry players to invest in this technology.
  • Supermicro, an IT solution provider for cloud, AI/ML, storage, and 5G/Edge, announced the expanded adoption of key open hardware and open source technologies into the core Supermicro server portfolio. Moreover, the newly launched 8U 8-GPU Rack Optimized Systems delivers superior power and thermal capabilities for large-scale AI Training and includes a host of open technologies.
Number of Data Centers, by Country, Global, 2022

Asia-Pacific to Witness Highest Growth Rate

  • The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to register the highest growth rate, due to the increasing adoption of technologies, such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Big Data, in various end-user industries, thus, increasing the demand for enterprise servers in this region.
  • The increasing data center services in the Asia-Pacific region, owing to the growing number of multinational and domestic enterprises turning toward cloud service providers, are also driving the need for enterprise servers.
  • Moreover, the Indian government’s cloud computing policy, which says that the data generated in India may be stored within the country, may ramp up the number and size of data storage centers in India, thus, boosting the enterprise server market.
  • Furthermore, major firms, such as Google and Apple, are also planning to open their data centers in China to seek enhanced connectivity and scalable solutions for their growing businesses.
