The data center rack and enclosure market size has grown rapidly in recent years. It will grow from $3.5 billion in 2023 to $3.88 billion in 2024 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.7%. The growth observed in the historical period can be attributed to the growing demand for data storage, the expansion of cloud computing, increasing internet usage, the rise in e-commerce activities, and the globalization of businesses.
The data center rack and enclosure market size is expected to see rapid growth in the next few years. It will grow to $5.89 billion in 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.0%. The anticipated growth in the forecast period can be attributed to the surging data generation from IoT devices, the adoption of edge computing, increasing demand for hyperscale data centers, and an emphasis on energy-efficient data center solutions. Major trends expected in the forecast period include the adoption of liquid cooling solutions, modular data center designs, increasing use of open-source hardware, a rise in demand for rack-level power distribution, and a focus on sustainable and environmentally friendly enclosure materials.
The anticipated expansion of new data centers is set to drive the growth of the data center rack and enclosure market. Data centers are complex facilities that utilize advanced network, computing, and storage infrastructure to facilitate shared access to applications and data. Within these data centers, racks and enclosures play a crucial role, serving as essential components to organize, mount, and safeguard servers, networking equipment, and other critical hardware. This organizational framework is vital for ensuring the efficient and reliable operation of the data center infrastructure. For example, as reported by the Korea Data Center Council (KDCC) in February 2021, the overall capacity of colocation data centers in Korea reached 430 MW by the end of 2020, representing 11% of the total APAC IT load. Projections from Savills Korea indicate an expected expansion of Korea's commercial data center IT load by 700 MW between 2021 and 2023, constituting 15% of the overall Asia-Pacific capacity. Therefore, the ongoing expansion of new data centers serves as a driving force for the data center rack and enclosure market.
The increasing adoption of cloud-based services is poised to contribute to the growth of the data center rack and enclosure market. Cloud-based services involve delivering various computing services over the internet on a pay-as-you-go or subscription basis, encompassing storage, processing, databases, networking, software, and analytics. Data center racks and enclosures play a foundational role in housing and organizing the hardware that supports the operational infrastructure of cloud services. Eurostat reported in December 2023 that 42.5% of EU enterprises utilized cloud computing, marking a 4.2% increase compared to 2021. Thus, the rising adoption of cloud-based services is a key driver for the growth of the data center rack and enclosure market.
