Microservers Market By Offering (Purchase & Installation, Services), By Processor (AMD, Intel, ARM), By Application (Data & Media Storage, Data Analysis, Cloud Computing, Other), By End-use Enterprise (Small Enterprise, Medium Enterprise, Large Enterprise) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

Microservers are small, specialized servers equipped with processors that are used extensively to execute lightweight tasks compared to traditional rack servers. Microservers are making their way into the data centers of small and medium-sized enterprises with limited technical staff. Owing to their small size, these servers can be packed in clusters and require low power to operate. Such servers are extensively used for various applications, such as data centers, data and media storage, and smart appliances. Because of the constantly expanding application areas and various advantages over traditional servers, the microservers market was valued at $4.27 billion in 2017. Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to drive the market to US$ 35.54 billion in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 26.7%.

Market Synopsis

In the Microservers Market, Purchasing and Installation claimed a sizable market share.

The progressive rate of establishment of new companies and consistently flourishing data applications allowed purchasing and installation to dominate the offering segment. Small and medium-sized enterprises prefer microservers, purchasing and installing them at a considerable rate. As these servers can be easily maintained by limited IT personnel, service for microservers lacks luster at present. However, with the continued proliferation of microservers, service offerings are projected to grow at a faster rate compared to purchasing and installation.

Intel Processors Command an Upper Hand Over Other Processors to Dictate the Market

In 2017, Intel processors emerged as the largest processor used across several microprocessors. Intel processors are already in almost 60% of enterprise-level servers and have a clear lead over Arm processors owing to their dominant market position. ARM processors are gaining momentum in the market with their energy-efficient, small-size microprocessors, offering tough competition to Intel. However, ARM processors necessitate changes to existing architecture and software porting to address compatibility issues. Consequently, ARM processors are projected to experience steady growth in the coming years.

Small businesses are critical to the growth of the microservers market.

A growing number of IT start-ups and web-hosting companies with limited budgets and resources prefer to opt for microservers. These servers are economical, weedy, and diminutive in physical attributes and pack enough power to carry out trivial computing tasks efficiently compared to high-specified alternatives. Because microservers operate on low power and require limited space, the benefits aided small businesses in establishing their infrastructure at a relatively lower set-up and running cost. Small enterprises trail medium enterprises in terms of market value. Such enterprises often use microservers along with traditional servers to get the best of both worlds. Large enterprises and data centers rarely used microserver initially; however, these large enterprises also recognize their power, and their market share is projected to increase consistently in the coming years.

Powered by Intel processors, North America is a clear leader in the global microservers market.

Backed by Intel microservers and the presence of multiple small media and large computing enterprises, North America appears to be at the top of the podium. The dominant position of North America is expected to remain undisputed throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. North America is followed by Europe in terms of market value. However, Asia Pacific is estimated to demonstrate the highest growth rate, all thanks to growing IT and data centers in China and India. With significant advancements in AI and IoT, Asia Pacific is expected to outperform the rest of the world beyond the forecast period.
