The Global KVM Market is expected to expand at 2.7% CAGR to reach a market value of USD 1,155.8 Million by 2025.
Data center providers constantly strive to reduce the overall IT cost and data center space and take help of various technologies in achieving the same. One such technology/system is KVM. KVM system allows the operator to control multiple computers from a single keyboard, video monitor, and mouse console. It enables the access and control of both local and remote network equipment with various KVM components including KVM extenders. IP KVM switches have the capability to help the operators to access and control devices from any remote location with an internet connection. It, therefore, allows data center operators to connect to any server in the rack from a single centralized location and helps in saving space, reducing additional hardware cost, and streamlining data center design.
Apart from these benefits, the key benefit that makes KVM an integral part of any data center is energy efficiency. Deployment of KVM leads to energy efficiency enhancement. KVM eliminates the need for any additional hardware which reduces redundancy, therefore less power is consumed due to lower electrical load. Due to these benefits, it is being widely used across all type of data centers. Also, there has been an increased discussion over creating green data centers or server rooms. The demand for green data centers has gained pace largely due to various regulatory norms regarding optimizing energy usage. Data centers, in general, are highly energy-intensive. A single server in a data center can use anywhere between 500 to 1,200 watts per hour. So, a single server can consume 20,400 watts, daily (considering average power use to 850 watts) and a data center contains up to a thousand servers which typically means that these data center consume tremendous power. In order to overcome this challenge, various national regulatory bodies, as well as independent organizations, have been promoting green data centers and optimization of power usage in the existing data centers. KVM plays a key role in reducing energy dissipation in server rooms and data centers. As operators and designers of data centers are now striving to optimize power usage in data centers or server rooms, they are significantly deploying KVMs on premise, which in turn is expected to drive the overall market.
Geographic analysis of the KVM market covers North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America led the global KVM market in 2018, whereas the market in Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
North America accounts for the largest market share in the global KVM market owing to the highest adoption of KVM systems from various companies in the US, Canada, and Mexico. The presence of established key players in the KVM market such as Black Box Corporation, SmartAVI, Inc., Raritan Inc., Raloy Inc., Vertiv, Icron, Gefen, and Network Technologies Inc. in this region has led the market to grow significantly. IT and telecommunication and broadcasting sectors are expected to generate significant revenue for the market in this region, while aerospace and defense sector is expected to register the fastest growth during the review period. Among the North American countries, the US market is the key contributor to the KVM followed by Canada and Mexico.
In Europe, increasing demand from the IT & telecom, broadcasting and government industries is expected to bring significant growth prospects for the region. Also, the rising investments and digital transformation of control centers and security rooms from the government, aerospace and defense, and aviation sectors is driving the growth of the market in this region. Additionally, the presence of various IT companies and its data centers in developed countries such as France, the UK, Germany, and Italy are expected to bring tremendous growth opportunities for the KVM systems market in the years to come.
The growth in the APAC region is driven by the increasing adoption of KVM systems for control room applications, control centers and video editing, financial, banking, trading desks, government and military agencies, production lines, and others. Also, the growing number of data centers across the region and the presence of key market players in countries such as China, Japan, and Taiwan are expected to fuel the growth of KVM systems during the forecast period. The APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period.
Significant growth in the KVM systems is seen owing to the increasing investment in countries such as South Africa, the UAE, and Egypt. High adoption of KVM products across gaming, industrial, and healthcare verticals and data centers in the Middle East is driving the market growth. However, a lack of technical expertise in countries such as Ghana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and many others is expected to restrict the KVM market growth during the forecast period.
The South American KVM market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period. The KVM market in South America is driven by the rising adoption of KVM systems by the South American government, and across aerospace and defense, aviation, and IT and telecommunication sectors. Also, the growing number of data centers in countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, Chile, and other South American countries is expected to fuel market growth.
