The global data center open-frame rack market size was worth US$ XX Million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2022-2029).
Data center open-frame rack is a type of rack that employs an open-frame with mounting rails but no sides or doors. It is usually employed when the rack doesn't have to manage airflow or provide physical security. Because they allow quick access and enough free space for cable management, open-frame racks are ideal for distribution frame applications and network wiring closets with high-density cabling.
Two or four vertical mounting rails, known as posts, can be seen on open-frame racks. Two-post racks often take less space than four-post racks, holding less weight. IT equipment meant to use all four vertical mounting rails for support may require a specific kit for two-post mounting if it supports four-post mounting out of the box.
The exponential rise of data traffic resulting in the need for optimal usage of data center space is expected to drive the data center open-frame rack market. However, very little control over airflow resulting in insufficient cooling is expected to restrain the market
The exponential rise of data traffic resulting in the need for optimal usage of data center space is expected to drive the data center open-frame rack market
The rapid expansion of mobile broadband and advances in big data analytics and cloud computing are driving the development of new data centers. According to a survey, between 3 and 5 owned data centers are operated by 33% of the company. 7% of companies, on the other hand, handle more than 50 data centers. As a result, data center space and efficiency have become premium factors for corporations as data flow has increased dramatically. All hardware and cabling solutions must be modular and scalable, allowing for the most efficient use of available space.
Open-frame racks are ideal for network wiring closets and distribution frame applications with high-density cabling as they allow quick access and enough free space for cable management. Open-frame racks feature more space for cabling than standard enclosures. In 2018, Huawei announced to adopt Open Compute Project Open Rack in its new public cloud data centers. Open Rack will improve Huawei's sustainability by utilizing less energy for the servers, decreasing maintenance and installing racks.
A very little control over airflow resulting in insufficient cooling is expected to restrain the market
Open-frame racks are ideal for some applications, although they provide minimal control over airflow. When it comes to improving data center efficiency, proper air control is crucial. To optimize overall efficiency, mixing cold and hot air should be avoided. Moreover, data center cable management is a challenging task. Ineffective cable management can result in untidy racks, difficulty installing equipment and extended maintenance and troubleshooting times throughout an organization. Insufficient cooling requirements in data centers provide an unsafe environment due to restricted airflow to cabinets.
Due to the global coronavirus outbreak, cloud computing, APIs, microservices and blockchain are expected to become increasingly frequently employed in digital banking systems. As a result, data centers will certainly see much expansion in the financial and banking industries. The market will increase significantly in 2021, thanks to the rising demand for data traffic management across various industrial verticals. Corporations and academic institutions' rapid use of remote working and e-learning technologies will boost demand for high-performance data center rack and enclosure solutions for equipment housing.
Based on end-user, the data center open-frame rack market is segmented into banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), IT and telecom, government and defense, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, energy and utilities and others.
Financial services have become increasingly reliant on data centers. Racks used in the banking industry must be extra security against theft, damage and other threats. Racks provide a framework for banking service providers to host their systems and safeguard them from physical threats. Because these racks are modular, banking service providers can upgrade them as needed.
Rack manufacturers are designing different products to meet this growing need. For instance, in 2019, NetRack launched Data Center racks 2019 to serve the banking and insurance industries. Moreover, in November 2021, Chayora, an operator of the hyper-scale data center in China, launched its Shanghai data center campus with up to 54MW of IT load-serving hyper-scale high-performance customers.
The global data center open-frame rack market is segmented into North America, Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa based on geography.
The data center open-frame rack market in Asia-Pacific is dominated by colocation providers, followed by internet and cloud service providers. China, Japan, Singapore, India, Australia and Hong Kong are the leading markets for data center expansion in the region. With the construction of additional data centers, local providers in each country are also increasing their presence, thus boosting the market growth.
For instance, in August 2021, ReNew Power and data center platform RackBank Datacenters Ltd signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for green power delivery. After a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is signed, ReNew Power will supply power generated from renewable sources to RackBank's data center in India.
The global data center open-frame rack market is highly competitive with the increasing IoT and cloud services, resulting in high investment by multinational and local companies. Further, the major companies contributing to the market are Eaton, Rittal GmbH & Co. KG, Black Box Corporation, Belkin, Netrack Enclosures Private Ltd, Innovation First, Inc., Dell Technologies, Schneider Electric, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. and Panduit, among others. In addition, the companies are working on growth plans such as expansions, product launches and collaborations, contributing to the market growth globally.
