They are increasing their data center footprint, and demand from cloud service providers prompts the growth of the server microprocessor market. Dominated by the duopoly of Intel and AMD, the market for server microprocessors is undergoing product innovations. Companies realize the performance needs for modern workloads such as data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence and are improving their designs accordingly.

  • The server microprocessors are bound to rapid technological change, which results in challenging quality adjustments for the companies. Some of the significant characteristics for measuring the quality of microprocessors include cores, threads, base frequency, turbo frequency, cache size, and thermal design power. Power consumption and performance are expected to remain the focus for microprocessors over the forecast period.
  • According to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), retail sales revenue for the consumer technology industry in the United States was forecasted to reach a record-breaking USD 487 billion in the previous year—a 7.5% increase compared to the previous years. A similar trend has been observed in other countries as well. The rapidly expanding demand for smartphones, tablets, and other smart home devices is among the major factors driving the demand for microprocessors, as microprocessors optimize the performance of these devices by improving speed and efficiency.
  • Apart from this, the increasing penetration of smart home products also drives the demand for microprocessors. Devices like smart locks, fire and smoke alarm systems, smart speakers, etc. are increasingly taking their place in people's lives. Coupled with the increasing spending capacity of the middle class, especially across developing countries such as India and Brazil, this is expected to support further market growth.
  • The growth of big data analytics and cloud computing, as well as the expansion of mobile broadband, drive the demand for new data center infrastructures.According to Cloudscene, North America alone (US and Canada) houses around 3029 data centers as of this year, making it a prominent market for server microprocessors.
  • Furthermore, the rapid rise of the Internet of Things is one significant reason for promoting microprocessor usage (IoT). IoT technologies enable microprocessors because it is now technically and economically feasible to collect data from a far wider range of things than was previously conceivable. Companies frequently misjudge the complexity and volume of data generated by IoT products and platforms, necessitating the deployment of solutions to help them manage and interpret all of the data they are now collecting.
  • The global outbreak of COVID-19 had a mixed impact on the worldwide microprocessor market. While the widespread lockdown across various countries significantly disrupted microprocessor manufacturers' supply chains and manufacturing capabilities, the demand for these semiconductor devices increased substantially across the healthcare and consumer electronics sectors.
