The data center rack & enclosure market is anticipated to witness a considerable growth over the coming years owing to the rise in the modernization and construction of new data centers by managed hosting and colocation providers. The market is witnessing an increasing requirement to provide enhanced protection and support to critical IT infrastructure and facilities. To protect the sensitive data, several providers and operators are increasingly investing in safeguarding the equipment. For instance, the rack security developed by the manufacturers operating in the industry is fitted with advanced features such as biometrics and video surveillance. Moreover, the cabinets in facilities are also protected with readers, which can read fingerprints and the cabinets are sealed inside the steel frames secured by cameras that are built with motion sensors on the top of every rack and can be monitored from the control rooms. Such factors are revolutionizing and driving the market growth.

Rapid growth in the number of businesses globally has led to a rise in the number of facilities to efficiently store and process information. Digitalization across all verticals, such as IT & telecom, BFSI, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and the government, is encouraging the demand for sophisticated cabinets. A large amount of data being generated has propelled the demand for innovative networking equipment for the data to be stored, thereby providing an impetus to data center rack & enclosure market. The rise in the adoption of high-density cabinets coupled with the growing importance of cooling, power, and efficiency has stressed the need for efficient cabinets. Initially, the focus on cabinets was limited with cost and size being the only considerations during the deployment. However, several colocation and managed hosting providers are implementing systems that can house more number of servers per unit area thereby increasing the capacity of the infrastructure.

Data Center Rack & Enclosure Market, By Component

The hardware segment is anticipated to witness a high growth rate of around 12% in the overall data center rack & enclosure market owing to the increasing focus of infrastructure manufacturers on the miniaturization of hardware. High-density networking server applications are demanding an infrastructure that can mount a combination of different equipment and support high-capacity cable management and airflow in a flexible and efficient design. Several vendors in market are focusing on engineering the cabinet systems that optimize the airflow and limit the cable density. Moreover, the rise in the server processing power and virtualization is enhancing the infrastructure capabilities by allowing multiple applications to operate on a single server. New server designs are facilitating more servers to fit into a rack. These refurbishments have led to increasing power densities of each rack thereby generating more heat. The need to manage airflow and heat is causing a rise in the demand for innovative cabinets, thereby providing an impetus to the market growth.

Data Center Rack & Enclosure Market, By Application

The trend of colocation is gaining traction owing to various advantages offered by the collocation providers. The colocation data center rack & enclosure market accounted for approximately 23% of the revenue share in 2017. There is an exponential rise in the amount of data generated from the increasing number of SMEs, which is generating a demand for scalable and reliable facilities that provide low installation and operation costs. Constructing a new facility drains the company’s labor, time, and money, owing to which colocation has become a feasible option for several SMBs that have budgetary constraints.

Colocation vendors offer sophisticated maintenance and services to businesses to maximize the productivity and also enable the enterprises to focus on their core business with improved data management. The increasing amount of data generated has also led to the need to expand the existing facilities thereby taking up space on the premises. The rising trend of cloud adoption has eliminated the requirement for exclusively-owned facilities. The demand for colocation services from the healthcare, BFSI, manufacturing, IT & telecom sectors is projected to aid the data center rack & enclosure market growth in the coming years.

Data Center Rack & Enclosure Market, By Region

South America data center rack & enclosure market is anticipated to witness a substantial CAGR of nearly 9% over the coming years.
