Market Snapshot


Global KVM Market valued at USD 949.8 Million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 1,155.8 Million by 2025 with a CAGR of 2.7% during the forecast period, 2020–2025.  


KVMs are combination of KVM extenders and KVM switches that enable the user to control multiple consoles with the help of KVM manager. KVMs used in data centers facilitate the control of multiple computers using a single set of video display monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Earlier, KVMs were used in data centers and server rooms. However, with the decline in the price of personal computers (PCs), consumers are now opting for KVMs. The advantages of KVMs such as space, time, and cost savings have increased its application in various industries including IT & telecom, marine, and aerospace & defense. KVM switches are widely used in the data center and small server facilities in various industry verticals. The deployment of KVMs eliminates the need for additional hardware, which in turn makes them cost-effective, energy-efficient, and suitable to be used in small data center facilities and server rooms.


North America accounted for the largest market share of 37.65% in 2018, with a market value of USD 357.6 Million; the market is expected to register the highest CAGR of 1.5% during the forecast period. Europe was the second-largest market in 2018, valued at USD 235.5 Million; the market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 1.6%.

Based on devices, the global KVM market has been segmented into analog KVM matrix system digital KVM matrix system. The analog KVM matrix system segment accounted for the largest market share of 63.0% in 2018, with a market value of USD 598.2 million; it is expected to register a CAGR of 2.4% during the forecast period. The digital KVM matrix system segment was the second-largest market in 2018, valued at USD 351.5 million; it is projected to register the highest CAGR of 3.2%. Digital KVM matrix system lets the operator operate multiple consoles. The system consists of three key components namely a central module, computer module, and user module. The central module connects the user’s console to the computer. Analog KVM matrix switch have the same functionality as Digital KVM i.e., they let the operator access multiple systems from a single location. Also, there are three key components, namely a central module, computer module, and user module.

Key Developments



  • In June 2019, Black Box, an industry-leading provider of KVM extension and switching systems, recently announced the launch of the Secure KVM Defender, the first NIAP 3.0-certified port isolator that enables protection of unsecured KVM systems. Preventing data leakage between secure and unsecured systems through shared peripheral connections, the Secure KVM Defender adds a critical layer of security for protecting sensitive or classified data passed across existing KVM matrix switching networks.

  • In September 2018, Guntermann & Drunck GmbH has launched a brand-new KVM-over-IP solution and the broadest KVM product portfolio in the market. The KVM-over-IP solution named the ControlCenter-IP is a matrix system to extend and switch computer signals via standard IP-based networks on layer 3. With help of this new KVM-over-IP solution, even the largest IT installations can now be easily scaled and implemented via IP access.

  • June 2018, KVM manufacturers Guntermann & Drunck announce six new expansion stages of the compact matrix series ControlCenter-Compact. The ControlCenter-Compact matrix system enables distributed switching and extension of computer signals and thus the remote operation of several computers via different workstations.
