The global server market size is anticipated to reach USD 175.29 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 9.3% from 2023 to 2030, according to the latest study by Grand View Research, Inc. As businesses are moving to private and public clouds, the edge cloud, co-location facilities, and data centers have started utilizing software-defined networks (SDNs) and virtualization to facilitate the implementation of new data analytics models. However, having realized that the incumbent servers cannot handle the complex workloads, server industry players in the region are introducing new server designs with higher computational power.
Newer applications that demand specific configurations and high computing requirements from users and service providers are increasing the adoption of cloud servers for efficient functioning. Enterprises are adopting virtual or cloud servers to enhance their global networking capabilities and cut operational and maintenance costs on their IT infrastructure. Additionally, cloud service providers have to invest significantly in the maintenance of cooling equipment as physical servers dissipate more heat. Due to this, provisions such as renting servers and virtualization have been gaining traction in recent years.
Tower servers are often used for multiple applications, such as communication, network, and file servers. Tower servers are designed to be positioned on or underneath desks. These servers are flexible and easy to upgrade according to customer requirements. Furthermore, their simplicity and robustness favor their adoption across various applications. Moreover, the demand for low-heat and quick-cooling servers is increasing due to the volume of information stored on these servers. These factors are collectively expected to drive the segment during the forecast period.
The cloud computing sector attracts small enterprises by offering scalable infrastructure and services. Cloud computing also offers benefits such as on-demand self-service, broad network access, resource pooling, flexibility in terms of cost and time, transparency in the form of usage reports and timely updates regarding consumption rates, and cost updates to customers. It not only helps deploy business quickly but also considerably reduces operational costs. Since data security and recovery are critical concerns for small organizations, they prefer to deploy data on private clouds. Furthermore, companies are utilizing big data analytics to provide the best services to their customers. Cloud services assist in optimizing business processes for small enterprises. These factors would further supplement the demand for servers in small enterprises during the forecast period.
