Global SFF Board Market 2017-2021

About SFF Board

A small form factor (SFF) board integrates both analog and digital circuits. SFF boards do not come in standard sizes but in different form factors. They are rugged, durable, customizable, and application-ready. They are used in SFF PCs and single-board computers (SBCs).SFF boards include the latest high-speed interconnect technology and next-generation processors, coupled with enhanced reliability, manageability, and serviceability features. They are designed to meet communication network infrastructure requirements. SFF boards offer various benefits, such as faster time to market, support a wide range of products, and allow end-users entry with low barriers or cost efficiencies. They provide sophisticated and robust system management architecture for the global telecommunication infrastructure.Technavio’s analysts forecast the global SFF board market to decline at a CAGR of (5.36%) during the period 2017-2021.

Press Releases

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global SFF board Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global SFF board market: Advantech, ADLINK Technology, Emerson Network Power, Kontron, and Radisys.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: American Portwell Technology, Eurotech, Mercury Systems, and WinSystems.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing demand for data centers. With the rise in M2M communication, IoT applications are generating large volumes of new data every minute. This data has to be managed, stored, and retrieved in several data centers located worldwide. The growing amount of data in the cloud increases the need for the development of data centers. As the cloud computing platform and services are growing exponentially, telecom network operators and cloud service providers are investing heavily in the construction of data centers worldwide. For instance, in July 2014, Tata Communications announced an investment of $200 million to expand its data center capacity in India to 10 lakh square feet over the next three years.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rapid increase in mobile data traffic. The growing use of tablets, smartphones, and other wireless communication devices has led to a rapid increase in the mobile data traffic. The increase in mobile video content also contributes to the growth of mobile data traffic. By 2021, the amount of mobile data crossing a network will exceed 45 exabytes per month, and video traffic will account for more than 73% of the total data consumed. The increase in video traffic is driven by various factors, such as a large screen size with high resolution that offers an ultra-HD video streaming experience. To improve the network capacity and reduce the cost per bit, mobile network operators are increasingly focusing on enhancing the network infrastructure.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Increasing technological complexity of SFF boards. The increasing technological complexity of SFF boards is a major challenge faced by SFF board manufacturers. Electronic device vendors are developing faster, smaller, and more efficient products because of the growing demand for consumer electronics, computers, and communication devices. This is encouraging semiconductor manufacturers to increase the development and adoption of new technologies. The technological complexity of SFF boards is increasing with the integration of more features and functions in SFF boards to meet the growing demands of end-users. This makes the designing of SFF boards difficult for manufacturers and leads to a delay in production and increase in expenditure.
