KVM Market Trends

  • Growing number of data centers is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for KVM is driven by the rising number of global data centers. The KVM enables users to control many consoles simultaneously when combined with a KVM manager. Using a video display monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, a video camera, and other devices, KVMs used in data centers enable the user to monitor and manage several computers. KVMs were initially used to handle servers and data in server rooms and data centers. However, clients are choosing KVMs more and more due to the sharp decline in the cost of personal computers (PCs). KVMs are anticipated to have tremendous growth in the next years due to their numerous benefits, which include time savings, reduced time consumption, and space savings.

Additionally, the demand for data centers is growing globally due to the rise in data demand, and major cloud vendors are focusing their efforts on commissioning numerous data center projects with substantial investments. For instance: Amazon, a market leader in cloud management, is investing more and more in constructing data centers around the globe, particularly in rising countries like Asia-Pacific. The business intends to spend USD 1.5 billion on constructing two data centers in India, mostly for its AWS division.

Furthermore, increasing usage of KVMs in IT & telecommunication, banking, aerospace and military are other factors driving the demand for KVMs in the projected period. Businesses with an extensive range of products and a high risk of cyber-attacks, such as those in the banking, telecommunications, and information technology industries, are storing data on the cloud and offering improved security features to shield sensitive data from breaches. Users can control data that is stored across various computers with the use of KVM switches, which also facilitate secure access. The market for KVM will expand dramatically in response to the rising demand for cloud storage. As a result, it is anticipated that throughout the projection period, demand for KVMs will increase due to the rising usage of KVMs in the forecast period. Thus, driving the KVM market revenue.

KVM Market Segment Insights:

KVM Type Insights
