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.

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.
