Data Center Market: Key Drivers and Trends
Based on our research output, there has been a neutral impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The rise in adoption of multi-cloud and network upgrades to support 5G is notably driving the data center market growth, although factors such as cybersecurity issues may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the data center industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Data Center Market Key Driver
The rise in the adoption of multi-cloud and network upgrades to support 5G will fuel the growth of the data center market size. Enterprises are embracing multi-cloud architecture to prevent data loss or downtime due to a localized component failure, ensure security compliances, and meet workload requirements. The demand for the deployment of 4G/5G networks globally is also expected to increase during the forecast period. With the implementation of 5G technologies and the consequent increase in speed, the rate at which data is generated, transmitted, and consumed will grow. This will drive the demand for the upgrade of the existing data center network infrastructure and increase in new data centers constructed closer to the data origins to reduce latency.
Data Center Market Key Trend
The rise in the adoption of edge computing is another major factor supporting the data center market share growth. Edge computing is a network architecture wherein the data is stored and processed near its origin. An edge server in this network serves as the connection between separate networks. The advantage of edge computing is that the stored content is close to the client machine, thereby reducing latency and improving server response. This type of network architecture was initially implemented by SMEs, but the growing demand for efficient and secure data management has spurred its implementation in large-scale enterprises. Market vendors are focusing on developing and introducing new edge computing platforms, which will help clients to improve their data management capabilities at the edge of the network. The growing deployment of edge computing will, thus, spur the demand for edge data centers, and the trend of edge data center deployments will continue during the forecast period, led by the advent of 5G and IoT technologies.
Data Center Market Key Challenge
Cybersecurity issues will be a major challenge for the data center market. Data is increasingly recognized as one of the prime assets for enterprises to derive revenue opportunities by analyzing past trends and for decision-making for the future. However, the security of sensitive data, which includes customer/usernames, addresses, telephone numbers, and social security numbers, is a major concern for enterprises. The threat of cyberattacks is rising with the growing adoption of cloud services and an increase in the adoption of IoT-based solutions. With a rise in cybercrime, enterprise server estate is at risk of being hacked by cybercriminals, who can take advantage of the IT security loopholes to gain access to enterprise servers. Such events would be a major challenge in the global data center market during the forecast period.
This data center market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
