Adoption Of Cloud-based Services And Big Data Will Boost The Global White-box Server Market Until 2020, Says Technavio

02:15:47 - 27 May 2016

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to the latest market research report by Technavio, the global white-box server market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 19% until 2020.

In this report, Technavio covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global white-box server market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of white-box servers by ODMs present in Americas, EMEA, and APAC.

“Adoption of cloud-based services and big data analytics is growing rapidly. In addition, digitalization has eased processing of application workloads on servers with cross-platform support. Processor manufacturers such as Intel are thereby looking to increase server efficiencies for distributed computing environments. It will greatly help enterprises draw a competitive advantage with the effective utilization of data center infrastructure,” said Rakesh Panda, one of Technavio’s lead industry analysts for M2M connected devices research.

“It has prompted many enterprises to design their own servers as per their operational needs. To fulfill this demand, the market is witnessing the entry of vendors that offer customers the flexibility to configure their own servers from available components,” added Rakesh.

Americas: largest region for the global white-box server market

The white-box server market in the Americas was valued at USD 1.88 billion in 2015. The US is the primary adopter of data center services in the Americas as the country is home to the highest number of data center facilities. Most of the data centers in the US are extending their existing facilities with more rack cabinets and servers. The adoption of containerized data centers in this region is higher as compared to other regions. Enterprises in this region prefer energy-efficient servers. The region will witness an increase in mission-critical and high-performance computing servers during the forecast period owing to the growing use of cloud services and big data analytics.

From the vendor perspective, there are many US-based organizations involved in consulting activities which includes customization of servers for the organization's business operational needs. These vendors include Celestica, Stack Velocity, and Hyve Solutions.

EMEA: largest region for the global white-box server market

The white-box server market in EMEA was valued at USD 0.94 billion in 2015. Cloud service providers and social networking companies are building mega data centers in this region because of growing business demand. This region also facilitates the use of renewable energy resource for data center operations. Enterprises, government agencies, and telecommunication service providers are planning to construct data centers to add computational power to meet the exponential growth in data and to create a collaborative working environment. Rack servers are quite popular in this region, and the adoption of blade servers will also likely increase during the forecast period.

Revenue from white-box servers is not only generated from hyper-scale data centers but also from small hosting organizations that are experiencing a strong adoption of white-box servers. This trend is expected to gain significant traction and help the market grow over the next four years.

APAC: third largest region for the global white-box server market

The overall server market in APAC was valued at USD 15.1 billion in 2015. In APAC, the demand for data centers and high-performance servers is likely to increase because of growing business and mobile computing services. Many large-scale data center facilities are already well established in the region, and it is leading to a high demand for related services.

In addition, the growing use of connected mobile devices is driving the market for data center servers because computational power is required to support those devices. With the growth of the overall server market, enterprises in the region are shifting to white-box servers as an alternative, particularly in China, where competition between ODMs and other branded vendors such as Inspur and Huawei is high. However, through proper marketing, ODMs will continue to expand over the next four years.
