Mainframe Market By Product Type (Z Systems, GS 21 Series and Others), By End-user (BFSI, Healthcare, Defense & Government, Retail, Public Utilities, and Others) - Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Landscape, 2018 – 2026

The global mainframe market is projected to witness substantial growth, growing at a CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Mainframe computers, created in the early 1940s, were designed for managing high volumes of data processing and business transactions. At present, for more than 40 years, mainframes have incessantly developed to meet the numerous challenges related to data processing. They normally have a considerable amount of memory for processing several computing tasks at once, along with great storage capacity.

Mainframes are mainly used by large-scale organizations for mission-critical applications. No computing platform has the capability of handling a diversity of workloads better than a mainframe. As a result, the rising need for high processing power is one of the important factors driving the growth of the overall mainframe market.

Today's mainframe generation offers a significant improvement in system scalability over the preceding mainframe servers. With total system capacity and increased performance, customers continue to consolidate diverse applications on a single platform. Mainframes are often used by banks, government agencies, and large companies that have huge storing and processing needs and can handle hundreds of users at the same time. For instance, a banking sector can use the mainframe to host a database of the customer's financial records, for which transactions can be made from any of the thousands of ATM locations worldwide. Thus, in the years to come, mainframes are likely to become more flexible and faster while also reducing physical size. This, in turn, is expected to facilitate the market's growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

BFSI garnered the largest market share in 2017.

Mainframes occupy a desirable place in various fields like healthcare, banking, insurance, finance, government, and a plethora of other public as well as private enterprises. In 2017, the BFSI sector accounted for the largest market share in the global mainframe market. Mainframes continue to be widely used, especially in the banking sector. Many financial institutions and major banks have mainframes at the center of their technological strategies. More than 70% of corporate banking data still resides on the mainframe. Mainframes alone have the reliable, robust, and rapid processing power that is required by financial institutions to do all major computing functions in one place.
