High-capital investment data center rack alternatives have a lot of market potential for growth. On the other hand, virtualization, rackmount servers, and centralization pose a threat to the data center rack market's growth. Furthermore, the sector faces high-cost cooling systems, increased workload requirements, limited energy supply, and rising rack density.

A rack is a specific type of physical frame composed of steel and other metals. It stores electronic servers, wires, network equipment, cooling, and other computer equipment in centers. These racks deliver adequate airflow and space for the devices, preventing them from being broken by temperature variations and tangled cords, cables, and other costly components.

Basic-level equipment comprises three or four mounting rails and a structure that holds the rails in position. Enclosures are in charge of storing IT equipment. Although conventional racks do not have as much space for cabling as open-frame racks, more profound or expansive cabinets are available on the data center rack market.

The market is experiencing rapid growth due to the expanding number of service providers, increasing information center interconnection, and the rapid adoption of the centers among end users as global internet traffic grows. According to the World Development Report, worldwide internet activity in 2020 is expected to exceed three zettabytes, or 3,000,000,000,000 gigabytes (GB).

Annual internet traffic is expected to rise by about 50% from 2020 to 2022, attaining 4.8 zettabytes, or 150,000 GB per sec. Furthermore, the number of cellular internet users is predicted to rise from 3.6 billion in 2018 to 5 billion by 2025. IoT interactions are expected to quadruple from 7.5 billion in 2018 to more than 25 billion by 2025.

With the increasing consumption of the information across the globe, the IT infrastructure for data centers will start shifting from small data centers to the much larger cloud as well as hyperscale data centers, requiring greater data center racks capable of handling such large loads and facilitating the system needed for optimal performance among these devices.

Due to government-imposed lockdowns, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hampered market expansion during the first half of 2020. Because of constraints on logistics services during the lockdown period, there were slowdowns in acquiring raw materials and electrical devices. Lockdowns were eased in the second half of 2020, allowing the operators to carry out their industry expansion plans and new residential projects.

With expanding demand for information traffic management across several industry verticals, the industry will see significant growth. The abrupt adoption of remotely operating and e-learning innovations by corporations and academic institutions will drive demand for high-end data center rack solutions for hardware housing.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The increased adoption of data-intensive implementations such as analytics, AI, and machine learning, as well as cloud computing and IoT utilization, have already resulted in market expansion. To maximize efficiency and performance, data centers use rack systems that can encompass more servers for every unit area. Companies on the market also offer customized racks to meet the unique requirements of the companies.

For instance, in August 2022, AMAX, the largest supplier of turnkey rack-scale High-Performance Computing (HPC) alternatives, Deep Learning/AI implementations, and server electronic component manufacturing, announced the launch of AceleMax X-122-Flex server solution, which includes Intel's succeeding GPU Flex Series, and provides the capacity of a graphics processing (GPU) solution managing high density and sophisticated workloads aimed at media delivery, cloud gaming, AWS, and other implementations.

Rapidly rising server and networking applications, including AI and IoT, necessitate a rack transportation system to assist cable management and maintain airflow with maximum flexibility. The industry will benefit from the market's growing global cloud technology and machine learning.

BFSI sector segment is expected to witness fastest growth

The market is predicted to expand at a healthy CAGR as digitization spreads throughout the BFSI sector, resulting in the developing of new IT infrastructure and services for data management. The expansion of digital banking enables the BFSI segment to adopt advanced information center infrastructures.

In April 2021, the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), a meaningful payment technology created by the National Payments Corporation of India, captured 2.73 billion transaction records worth USD 67.31 billion. The BFSI sector invests significantly in the infrastructure upgrades while concentrating on cloud-based solutions for expense and agility. This factor will pressure existing IT infrastructure to adopt new and advanced racks and enclosures to meet the needs of the expanding BFSI sector.

The BFSI sector is also moving into new regions and communicating with massive traffic, necessitating a reliable and consistent infrastructure to process payments. The BFSI sector also manages millions of virtual and physical servers. The industry also has several monitoring devices that must address various challenges, such as allocating resources optimization, preparation time reduction, and daily data center operational accountability.

Cabinets segment industry accounted for the highest market share in 2021

The rising demand for the cabinet platform and the adoption of advanced technology are likely to boost segment growth. The major players also focus on the digital infrastructure and cabinet platform launches to promote market growth. For instance, in May 2022, Nexpand, a data centers cabinet platform from Legrand, offered the required adaptability and future-proof structures for digitalization.

The flexible, strong, and safeguard offering from the electric and digital infrastructure building professional is intended to house devices. In addition to assisting with expanding online transitions, the new system also aids in the Internet of Things integration, 5G assistance, cloud technologies, and AI applications.

Manufacturing sector is expected to hold the significant revenue share

The market was propelled by the increasing penetration of technologies such as Artificial intelligence, IoT, and robotics in manufacturing plants. Large automakers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz use robotics and machine learning at their production facilities.
