This market research report identifies suppliers like Intel and AMD to be the key vendors in the global server MPU market. It also presents a detailed segmentation of the global market by architecture (ARM, x86, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global server microprocessor unit (MPU) market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global server microprocessor unit (MPU) market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 3% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rapidly growing server market. The market for microservers, which can tackle heavy application workloads with more efficiency than tower servers, is expected to grow, with increased adoption among data center vendors. Also, virtualization has helped in the consolidation of data center servers, as a result of this, enterprises are increasingly adopting servers that are compatible for mission-critical and high-performance computing applications to cater to the growing demand. With this increased adoption of blade servers and microservers, the revenue of the server market will increase significantly. Consequently, the market's revenue will increase steadily depending on the business requirement for enterprises in several industry verticals, cloud, government enterprises, colocation and web hosting services, and telecommunications. This, in turn, is expected to propel growth in the global server MPU market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the growing need for micro data center facilities. With the exponentially growing data through the internet of things (IoT) connected devices, the need for micro data centers and containerized data centers has increased. Due to this rise in demand, these data centers are expected to gain considerable traction among enterprises in the future. Infrastructure housed in these data centers include IT infrastructure, UPS systems, power distribution units (PDUs), and cooling units. Moreover, it has been observed that the adoption of the micro server or density optimized servers is higher among containerized data center and micro data centers for edge computing purposes. These advantages of the micro data center are expected to augment growth in the global MPU market in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global server MPU market is highly consolidated due to the presence of few international players holding the majority share of the global market. It is expected that over the next few years, new entrants will enter the market space with advanced technology. This will support companies to develop data centers servers at a much lower cost.

Leading vendors in the market are –

  • Intel
  • AMD

Other prominent vendors in the server MPU market include Broadcom, Cavium, Marvell, Applied Micro, and Qualcomm.

Segmentation by architecture and analysis of the server MPU market

  • ARM
  • x86

During 2016, the x86 architecture dominated the server MPU market and accounted for a major part of the overall market share. Factors such as the ability to execute commands over multiple clock cycles and the easy conversion of human level language such as C to processor level language are the key factors responsible for the growth of this segment in the server MPU market.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the server MPU market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

In this market study, analysts have estimated the Americas to dominate the server MPU market during the forecast period. The dominance of the server MPU market in the Americas is mainly due to the high consolidation of data centres in the region. Also, the adoption of containerized data center is expected to further support the growth of the server MPU market in the region.
