Global Micro Server Market - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
The microserver market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.89%, over the forecast period 2018 - 2023. The scope of the market covers all the hardware solutions offered by various vendors in the market.
Increasing demand to improve the operational efficiency of server infrastructure is expected to drive the microserver market. Rise in demand for cloud facilities for various applications and increasing number of medium and small-scale enterprises, globally, are the factors fuelling the market growth of microservers.
Microservers are used for serving dynamic web elements, serving hosted desktops, web 2.0 activities, and digital signal processing tasks. The limited computing power makes it unsuitable for heavy server applications. However, the benefits of low cost and high operational efficiency surpass its drawbacks. Low awareness among the industry players about its benefits and applications is one of the factors hampering the growth of microserver market.
Adoption of Cloud-based Storage by Enterprises to Drive the Market Over the Forecast Period
The adoption of cloud for data storage has been witnessed across various enterprises around the world, since the commercial data requires a large storage space, varying from large firms to SME’s. With the advent of IoT and big data analytics there is a rising amount of data being generated. Since, on-premise storage of these huge amounts of data becomes expensive, many enterprises have started moving their data to the cloud storage by selecting service providers, such as Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud Platform. Microservers are suitable for web-based operations, such as dedicated hosting. Thus, the increase in the adoption of cloud-based storage is expected to fuel the demand for microservers during the forecast period.
North America to Hold the Largest Market Share
Market growth in North America majorly depends on the growth of mobile computing, cloud computing market, IT spending, etc. The leading companies, such as Dell, HP, and AMD are playing a major role in this market; HP currently leads the global microservers market.
