Egde computing application to hold highest CAGR in micro server IC market from 2021 to 2026
Edge computing is one of the emerging applications for micro server ICs and is expected to hold the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The implementations of hyperscale cloud and growing investments in IoT have pushed edge computing into further limelight. As organizations strive to remain competitive in the digital business era, especially in a post-pandemic world, edge computing is a new enabler of customer insights and retention. Independent software vendors, system integrators, and enterprises will look to build cloud-independent solutions which will drive edge computing applications. Additionally, the growing adoption of 5G solutions will offer reduced latency and a way to connect the rising number of edge devices, particularly in the consumer space. There has been the rising need for edge computing for applications such as connected and autonomous vehicles, smart manufacturing and IoT, and smart cities. It has spurred the growth of edge data centers, and the rising importance of compact servers due to space constraints provides opportunity for micro servers.
Enterpise end user segment to hold highest market share during the forecast period
The enterprise end-user segment of the micro server IC market is expected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period. With the growth of smartphones, social platforms, big data, and IoT, the quantity and diversity of data has become huge. Managing dense workloads, ramping up data storage and security, upgrading legacy systems, and accommodating the technology demand a mobile workforce. Therefore, it has become important to modernize IT infrastructure, especially servers, to make them easy to manage and completely secure—whether critical applications and data are hosted on-site or in the cloud. Small and medium enterprises need server platforms that not only address current needs but also seamlessly handle future workloads, while lowering costs. Micro servers utilize lower power per node, reduce costs, and increase operational efficiency which makes them an ideal choice for medium-size enterprises.
Micro server IC market in APAC to grow at the highest rate from 2021 to 2026
APAC is expected to grow at the fastest rate for the micro server IC market owing to the presence of countries with large populations and rising adoption of micro servers across small and medium enterprises. The increasing penetration of internet services, along with the adoption of smart devices, has been fueling data generation. This further fuel the expansion of data centers in the APAC region. Rising importance of micro servers due to low power consumption and cost-effective solutions can be used for light load applications in data centers, which also drives the growth of the market. Data centers have become the hotspot of the IT market in China in recent years. China plans to invest an estimated USD 1.4 trillion over 6 years to 2025, in collaboration with government and private technology giants such as Alibaba and Huawei to generate opportunities for connected devices, AI, and autonomous driving applications, which will further drive edge computing applications.
