This market research study analyzes the leading players in the global DCIM market such as CommScope, Emerson Network Power, Nlye, Schneider, Sunbird Software, and Panduit. A competitive analysis of this market is also presented by type (software and services) and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the data center infrastructure management (DCIM) market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global data center infrastructuremanagement (DCIM) market will witness impressive growth and post a staggering CAGR of more than 11% over the forecast period. With several technological advancements such as cloud, big dataIoT, and virtualization, the data center environment is becoming increasingly complex. It has been estimated that nearly 20%-30% of resources are not being utilized properly, including comatose servers and storage and network infrastructure. In addition, a server running at its full capacity emits an enormous amount of heat that needs to be cooled down by the cooling infrastructureDCIM solutions help in the optimum utilization of IT resources in a data center and helps the operations manager to allocate resources for optimum functionality, leading to its increased adoption over the forecast period.

The increasing adoption of containerized data centers is one of the most significant trends propelling this market’s growth over the forecast period. A containerized data center is portable as it is pre-installed in a shipping container. These data centers are a part of a modular data center, in which each module is a container that can host IT, power, and cooling equipment. Several enterprises are building modular data centers that include many data center container modules in a single facility. The installation to deployment time for these modules is less than six months and are highly cost effective. The deployment cost of a containerized data center facility is lower than building and renovating a new conventional data center facility. These data centers are easy to relocate and can be managed centrally. The use of DCIM solutions in containerized data center facilities leads to considerable reduction in operating expenditure (OPEX), along with the reduced initial investment.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Due to the presence of several well-established vendors in the market, the global DCIM market is highly competitive. The adoption of DCIM has increased due to increased popularity of monitoring and management tools that aid in operating energy-efficient data center facilities. From the vendor’s perspective, DCIM solutions are being reinvented with features such as a cloud-based interface for remote monitoring benefits. In addition, competition among vendors is also growing in terms of cost, expertise, and innovative offerings. This market is also witnessing the advent of several new players, such as ABB and Siemens, along with their infrastructure solutions. Small players have made a strong presence in the market by targeting critical areas in data center space that require maximum attention such as power consumption and cooling efficiency.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • CommScope
  • Emerson Network Power
  • Nlye
  • Schneider Electric
  • Sunbird Software
  • Panduit

Other prominent vendors in the market include ABB, Cormant, Device 42, FNT, Geist, Modius, Optimum Path, Rackwise, Vigilent, Advanced DataCentre Systems, Altima Technologies, Aten, Baselayer Technology (IO), Eaton, Graphical Networks, GreenField Software, Methode, NISCOM, Rack Technologies (PLP Group), RiT Technologies, Server Tech, Siemens, Tripplite, and Zoho Corp.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the DCIM market

  • Software
  • Services

In terms of revenue, the software segment dominated the global DCIM market and is expected to reach over USD 1 billion by 2020. DCIM software accounts for almost 70% of the overall cost of implementing DCIM. Due to the increasing operating expenditure year-over-year (YOY) through higher power consumption, carbon emission, equipment failure, and security concerns with data centers, the majority of enterprises are adopting DCIM software for asset management, capacity planning, power and carbon footprint reduction, and real-time monitoring of every asset. As software forms the core of DCIM adoption, the increasing use of DCIM solutions globally will directly impact the DCIM software market in the coming years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the DCIM market 

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

In terms of geography, the Americas led the market and accounted for more than 47% of the total market shares. At present, most of the modern data center projects in the region are being powered by renewable energy sources. However, due to stringent government regulations toward environment protection, data center operators are compelled to adopt DCIM solutions to reduce power consumption and carbon footprint. Also, several old data centers that are being renovated due to equipment failure or to make the equipment compliant with the latest environment protection guidelines.
